carciofi02.jpgMy brit friend told me artichokes are unknown in UK.

 

Say what? In Cali have at least 5 different types.

 

For a single:
. 2 artichokes
. a garlic clove
.EVOO
.salt and pepper
.grated nutmeg
.grated pecorino or grana for a milder taste

 

Take out the hard leafs from artichokes, usually three layers until soft and light green, cut the sticks in 2-3cm after peeled with a potato peel, cut the artichoke in 4 longitudinally, put all in a pot with 10cl of water a drop of evoo salt pepper and nutmeg and the crushed garlic, let it gently boil lid for say 20mins? until they're soft with a fork. When done use scissors to chop it straight in the pot or braun mixer to make a smooth sauce. Good with tagliatelle but I rather prefer pappardelle. Pour grated cheese.

Your friend is right @Mazda2 - I'm in Scotland and it's not an ingredient I'd know how to use!  I'll keep a note of this recipe though, in case the mood takes me!

@Jenny  the trick is to properly cut the hard pins of soft leafs too or the risk is to end up munching it for hours which is terrible

@Mazda2 Your Brit friend doesn't speak for us all! My family grows artichokes, I'm a big fan of artichoke hearts 🤩

Your friend is talking nonsense! We are quite familiar with artichokes in the UK. And we don't like being referred to as Brits, at least not in Scotland.
