Artichokes

I'd be interested to hear if anyone knows how they are used in Turkish cuisine. I asked the people that sell them in Dalyan market and they said they didn't know how to cook them.
I've not seen them in any restaurants here either - has anyone seen them on a menu here in Turkey?

Re: Artichokes

I had artichoke hearts and broad beans in oil in a restaurant in Fethiye recently, they were served cold and were delicious. Sorry, can`t remember the name of the restaurant.

Re: Artichokes

Thanks Richbry, I'll have look at that site. I use them in a few different dishes (risotto, omlette or with potatoes..) but I'd like to know what they do with them here!

Sunberry - is the restaurant by ay chance on the one-way system, near the duck pond? If that's the one, they do some really nice veggie dishes. I think it's Anatolian, but I don't know the name of it either!

Re: Artichokes

Hi Carla, yes, I think it is the same restaurant you described. The food is always fresh and tasty and plenty of choice - I like to try different dishes each time I go, just wish it was nearer to Dalyan!

Re: Artichokes

You can buy ready prepared artichoke hearts in large plastic containers at our local bazaar (in season)
My mother in law cooks them with peas and finely diced carrots and serves them hot or cold. The 'sauce' seems to be a mixture of veg juices and olive oil.

Re: Artichokes

Just had some of these at the health spa at the weekend. They were served in rings with a mixture of veg in the middle and covered in a thin sauce. Very tasty!

Re: Artichokes

When I first came to live in Turkey I noticed how many people actually grew the Artichoke. I was very surprised however that they never appeared in the markets or on menus. When I made enquiries about how they should be cooked and eaten no one had an answer!

Having been served artichokes by my newly married sister, who was like any other new bride, trying to impress with her new found culinary skills, many years ago, I tucked into this strange vegetable by peeling off the inedible leaves one by one and as instructed dipped the ends in a lemon and oil based sauce which you sucked off the end of the leaf until the heart of the bulb was exposed and the prize of the artichoke was revealed and enjoyed.

To this day I have likened it to a game of pass the parcel, whereby after a lot of effort the outer wrappings, which are uselesss, are prepared and torn off and in the passing of time the prize is revealed at the end with a sigh of "ooo delicious but is that it?????" Hence when the pretty Artichoke bulb is in season and are in abundance in the local markets I often pass them by with a "shall I" "shan't I" and decide that I really can't be bothered. Having said this I wouldn't pass one up if it was prepared and enough of the hearts (the good bit) were presented to me on a plate.

I think it is a vegetable that needs a lot of imagination when preparing and serving and the only tempting way to eat this would be one I watched on an American tv cook show recently where the lowly Artichoke was firstly boiled, drained and stuffed to the brim with crushed garlic and lashings of Blue Cheese and baked. But I think I would need a lot of them..........

Note The restaurant in Fethiye is the Megri - very imaginative cuisine goes on in there. You can also find celeriac bulbs prepared there which is another vegetable that is a mystery to me, although different, does not push my buttons.
