Steamed Artichokes, Old World Style

Steamed Artichokes is rated 3.2 / 5 based on 12 votes.


Serve with chicken piccata or a nice pasta dish. Artichokes are difficult to pair with wine, so why not serve with sparkling mineral water with a twist of lemon? This will leave room for a delicious dessert – perhaps tiramisu. Mmm…
