We admit it – we just love ramps!

Ramp Cooking Queens

As two Southern women who grew up in the shade of the Great Smoky Mountains we have been ramp lovers for as long as we can remember.

Chancer & Melinda
The Ramp Cooking Queens


Chancer is from the eastern side of the Great Smokies in Western North Carolina while Melinda hails from the western slopes in Eastern Tennessee.

Despite growing up hundreds of miles apart, we bonded together over our love of good Southern cooking – especially ramps.

We started RampItUpCooking.com as a resource for others who love eating and cooking with those reekin’ ramps as much as we do.

Here on the RampItUpCooking.com website, you’ll find a number of ramp food articles, recipes and cooking resources to help you learn more about cooking with this wonderfull “Stinking King of Spring”…

… You’ll learn everything from how to buy fresh ramps, to cooking using both fresh and dried ramp seasonings, plus some great looking “ramp” wear to show-off your love for this pungent vegetable and much, much more!

We are always happy to hear from our fellow ramp lovers, so feel free to ask your questions (if you are secret ‘lover’ you can ask us – we won’t tell!)

Let us know what you think – any ideas to improve or make this site better is always welcome!
