Will everyone who's ever eaten artichokes for the first time and mistakenly shoved the whole fibrous, impossible-to-chew leaf in their mouth, and then tried to figure out how to get rid of it without gagging, please raise your hands? Or am I alone in this Lucy-like episode of Famous Food Faux Pas? Why, all those years ago, didn't I have Tyler Florence to show me the way with his delicate roasted baby artichokes?
Yes, folks, artichoke season has come around again. Blogger Pabo76 (who also provides great takes on Korean food) layers the choke with sun-dried tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and some roasted red peppers on crusty bread (for another hoagie combo see our recipe). Or you can get back to artichoke basics (and give your kids a lesson in the ultimate slow food, leaf by leaf) with this recipe for the spiky green veg.
