  • About

Artichoke hearts make a delicate spread with an unusual, mild, nutty flavor. Although some time is needed to prepare and cook the artichokes, this paste keeps for several weeks and is very useful for impromptu hors d’oeuvres—spread on crackers or grilled or toasted bread or sandwiched between paper-thin slices of a delicate white bread with small sprigs of fresh chervil or chopped parsley. It can also be mixed with cream to make a sauce for pasta or spread over warm crêpes.
