Num! I was the happy recipient of 1 1/2 lbs of the most beautiful baby artichokes thanks to the great growing expertise of Maple Rock Farms on Orcas Island, WA. I decided to use Giada's recipe..and it was dynamite. The only modification I made was to roll the artichokes in a bit of flour seasoned with fresh ground black pepper and a bit of orega"
