The chef from the 1 Michelin star restaurant, La Finca says that we should be more inventive with the artichoke. Mostly people, who are not in the know, either boil them and peel back the leaves to eat the tips or they use them in stews.
Susi Díaz suggest other ways to eat them. For example you can fry the white artichoke and use it as a starter or you can cut thin slices, coat them with white chocolate for a dessert.
Maybe I should explore the ways that people in the Vega Baja prepare this vegetable to discover why it is so popular.
