  • About

The Italian-originated cardone, which looks and tastes rather like a silvery green globe artichoke on a long stem, is one of the favorite winter vegetables of gourmets in France and Italy. It also grows in California and is distributed nationally during the winter months. One eats the leafy, fleshy and tender, delicately flavored midribs of the plant, and this is one of the best methods of preparing them. (Menu with wines.)
