I’m feeling cheesy. A night of watching food television will do that to a girl. I’ve just watched three hours of cheese programmes as it so happens that watching people make cheese on TV is an incredibly calming experience.
At the same time I was flicking through my Harold McGee On Food and Cooking as I find I do a lot while watching food television and discovered this interesting information.
Cardoon is a vegetable (the leaf stems and artichoke can be eaten), and a spectacular edition to your garden with tall, silvery foliage. I grew it years ago and hadn’t replaced it after frost-strike. But this has got me wanting another specimen. I shall add it to my list of wanting to procures for the season. That list is getting rather gangly.
