Today I'm trying out cardoons! Cardoons are a vegetable related to thistles and artichokes, and they're bloody delicious. .
Made Cardi Fritti earlier, cardoons blanched then fried in batter - a Sicilian dish. And I've just made a stew with a soffritto, cherry tomatoes, cardoons and black olives. With rosemary polenta. Check cardoons out if you can get hold of them! They're an absolute delight
