Artichokes with Parmesan

Pair with: Amontillado


Cooking time: 30 min

There are certain foods with which you can touch the sky and the artichoke is one of them. Amontillado is the perfect wine to enhance the flavor of this vegetable and due to the wines low acidity levels it pairs perfectly with the high acidity of the artichoke.



Artichokes with Parmesan

Juice the lemons and add to water, saving a little of the lemon for later. Cut the tops off the artichokes and dip into lemon water to keep from browning.

Squeeze the lemon over the entire artichoke. 

Put the artichokes on an oven tray,  drizzle a little olive oil, add a pinch of salt, and grated parmesan in the heart of the artichoke.

Finally, wrap each artichoke loosely in aluminum foil and place on oven tray at 200 ° C (thermostat 6-7) for approximately 1hour 15 mins.
