Eating our first artichoke

Last night I cooked up the first of our artichokes. The big 16cm one, which we shared. It took about 1hr in a big stockpot which had a couple of inches of water in the bottom, a clove of garlic, a bay leaf and a slice of lemon (actually rangpur - the orange lime - as I had no lemons).

The hollandaise sauce was a success, took a bit of careful whisking over a very low heat (bain marie) and the verdict from G for the whole 'meal' was 10/10!

A definite winner!
