One of my most memorable (next to my first taste of lobster) dishes when I was growing up was this recipe. I had never tried artichokes before and really didn't think I would like them. Like them? I absolutely fell in love with them, especially this creamy and delightfully tasty appetizer. This recipe shows you what you can accomplish with the barest of ingredients, letting the flavor of artichokes shine through. You can use canned artichokes as well, but they are slightly too soft for my palate. As for using fresh artichokes, they are easy enough to cook if you are going to eat them out of their leafy "bowl", but to prepare them fully for this recipe is too time consuming.
