|Artichokes make me think of both California and the south of France,|
especially California. I was really happy to find a package of four reasonably
fresh ones at Trader Joe's this afternoon. I brought them home and steamed them.
|I made a simple lettuce, cucumber, and grapefruit salad to go with them.|
|It just happens that the book I am reading has a big artichoke|
on the cover, and is about California cuisine.
