charred artichoke heart, crispy baby artichoke, toasted pine nut, parmigiano, lemon, olive oil
Eat your heart out with this antipasto featured on Netflix’s The Chef Show. A native vegetable of the Mediterranean region, dishes with artichoke abound in Italy. But getting to the heart of this tough flower is challenging work. We happily pluck the thick exterior leaves to reach their softer, more delicious counterpart. Those petals are crisped up to a golden hue, paired with bites of the nutty, earthy heart and lightly dressed with parmigiano, lemon and olive oil. Finished with toasted pine nut, it’s a delicious way to set the stage for your main course.
