The Ultimate Artichoke

Osteria Enoteca San Marco – Venice, IT

Artichokes were a slow burn for me, I gotta be honest. For much of my life I didn’t even give them the time of day. But over the years they have grown on me. Not literally, because that would be freakishly gross.

But perhaps the single biggest reason why I changed my mind about the choke was this appetizer I had in Venice. Well, my wife ordered it, obviously. I just mooched. Heavily. Presented in a hockey-puck-shaped tower on the plate- these artfully marinated and grilled layers swirled into a force to be reckoned with. It’s hard to elaborate too much beyond that as they were only adorned with a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper. And therein lies the power of execution my friends. Great ingredients in perfect harmony along with a little crostini and belissimo!
