  • About

Traditionally prepared with catnip, but mint will do fine (and you’ll avoid the attentions of stray moggies). Select artichokes with stems, and with heads of between 3 and 8 cm long. The leaves should be pliable and not too spiky. The preparation of artichokes may seem very complicated, but once you have seen it done, or had a go yourself, you’ll understand the basics, and can be confident.
