artichoke leaf☣

The artichoke is at home in the warm, sunny regions around the Mediterranean. Its subtle-tart, slightly nutty aroma was already appreciated by the ancient Arabs, who first cultivated the plant in the 1st century A.D. The artichoke – which looks somewhat like a pine cone – was seen as a symbol of wealth and a genteel lifestyle by the French rural aristocracy.
