Artichokes à la Barigoule a Classic Provencal Recipe
When perky artichokes announce the arrival of warmer weather, it is time to revisit Artichokes à la Barigoule a Provençal delight, rich, flavorful and complex. Fresh artichokes are usually available in local markets from spring through late summer. The garlic, carrots and fresh herbs give the dish its flavour. You can make this dish vegetarian by omitting the bacon.
Enjoy these stewed artichokes as a starter course, or side dish with a fuller-bodied white wine or chilled rosé.
This recipe is one of many from this cookbook, Provence Food and Wine: The Art of Living with photos by François Millo.
