Synopses & Reviews
It looks like a hand grenade, but it tastes like heaven. And artichokes are also amazingly low in calories yet high in fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C. Oddest and edgiest of edible flowers, the artichoke stars in the latest addition to the Cook West Series, Artichoke Extravaganza, which features 50 delightful West Coast recipes for the tenderhearted thistle. Try simple Roasted Garlic Dip, refreshing Artichoke Salad Niçoise, elegant Artichokes Étouffée, or yummy Artichokes Marilyn, named in honor of the world's first Artichoke Queen, Marilyn Monroe.
