Goat Leg

  • Open up goat leg, and season generously with salt pepper, zatar, and sumac.
  • Roll up the goat leg and truss with butcher's twine, season the outside with the remainder of the salt, sumac and zatar.
  • Rub the goat leg with grape seed oil, then grill on medium-low heat. When grilling large meats make sure to go low and slow.
  • Grill the goat leg slowly, for about 2 hours, or until 135 °F.
  • Remove the leg from heat, then, while it's still hot, lightly grill ramp leaves. Reserve the ramp leaves.

Riata Salad

  • While leg is cooking make riata salad by dicing cucumbers, red onion & tomato.
  • Thinly slice, then mince jalapeno and garlic and mix with cucumbers, onion and tomato. Season the mixture to taste with fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Fold in the yogurt and dust with sumac.

Pickled Ramps

  • Heat sugar, water and vinegar up to a boil.
  • Destem ramps and pickle lower bud until tender.
  • Remove from pot season with salt, pepper, sumac and lemon zest.
  • This is a very basic pickle. We also really like this recipe.


  • Smear some hummus on plate, arrange a few grilled ramp leaves, then goat leg slices and the riata salad.
  • Finish the plate with chopped mint, parsley and onion blossoms. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.
