Cook West: Artichoke Extravaganza

It looks like a hand grenade, but it tastes like heaven. And artichokes are also amazingly low in calories yet high in fiber, potassium, and Vitamin C. Oddest and edgiest of edible flowers, the artichoke stars in the latest addition to the Cook West series, which features fifty delightful recipes for the tenderhearted thistle. Try simple Roasted Garlic Dip, refreshing Artichoke Salad Nicoise, elegant Artichoke Etouffee, or yummy Artichokes Marilyn, named in honor of the first Artichoke Queen, Marilyn Monroe.
