Almost Famous

Behold, the finished episode:

Many thanks to Craig and Staci for their top-notch work. Stay tuned for more; in the next one I’ll be making a tongue sandwich with Miley Cyrus.

  • Tongue sandwich? Not Twerk Chicken?

    Nice work up there in that video. Congrats.

  • Nice to see you rather than read you. Excellent work PB!

  • so good I could fall over.

  • Elizabeth

    More please!

  • Have you gone to PBS with this… they would be DUMB not to go for it. Great work. Original, quirky… all those crap adjectives they use in my biz but TRUE in your case. Well done, Peter.

    Nice lensing too.

    It’s a dinner party I would love to go to…

    This is really fantastic!

  • Chris

    Excellant video! Of course, now I have ramp envy. But seriously a really well done piece.

    You should smile more. It’s your best feature. Presently you look defensive and awkward. You also should feature the women in your lives. For obvious reasons.
    Cheers.

    seriously inspiring and now I am bemoaning our lack of ramps in California. Looking forward to many more videos.

  • Medeski a perfect foil. I should be up in Stone Ridge Sunday 20th, working on rack&shelves for the wine. Doubts about placement, could use yr perspective if you could stop by. See ya!?

  • Peter,
    This is wonderful. Thank you.

  • Tamara

    Love the show, the flow and the guys in the kitchen! Beautiful cadence and just enough how-to to inspire not demand. If only we could all taste the goodness online…can’t wait to see more!

    so,I love MM&W and your production was professional and endearing… yet, you did a disservice to yourself and all ramp lovers (and lovers to be), by not harvesting your ramps responsibly. Since you left tobacco, I can understand that you desire to operate in harmony with the Earth provider…. I must tell you that each of those whole ramps that you gathered are ramps that will not reproduce and multiply. You are shrinking your own patch for yourself and anyone else who may wish to harvest from there in the future. I know this was not your intent.
    So, please:
    follows an herbalist’s way for gathering… We don’t harvest bulbs or roots or tubers in spring, as a rule… those get dug up in late summer and into the fall. Once the ramps set their seeds in the fall, if we collect ONE bulb from each cluster, the seeds are scattered, and the plant then is assisted in regenerating next year’s crop. In spring, when having our fetish for ramps, simply enjoy ONE leaf of the two that emerge, and don’t take too many from each cluster… practice patience, and your ramp patch will grow, not shrink.
    and PLEASE, since your lovely videos are likely to garner much attention, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let your friends and fans know that it’s crucial for us to learn to harvest sustainability…. keep in mind the mess we’re in because we typically don’t observe that necessity.
    (your mention of harvesting for $$ is particularly upsetting)
    peace.
