PA Corporate Chef Steph's take from this week's Market Report "Good Buy"
When I aim for rustic elegance, I choose artichokes to guild my menus. Simply prepared is always best, with as much of the vegetable in-tact as possible, ensuring that its natural beauty is showcased. I adore stuffed artichokes as an appetizer with sausage, fennel, toasted breadcrumbs, and a light citrus aioli, allowing guests to tear off pieces of whole, meaty artichoke leaves as they wish. Young artichokes are also beautiful blanched and grilled because they retain grill marks so beautifully on their stems, a sadly under-appreciated portion of this stunning vegetable! - Chef Steph
