Alcachofas de la abuela – Grandmother’s Artichokes
Don’t be fooled by the austere presentation, this plate is packed full of flavor. Only found in restaurants that still cook with traditional techniques, alcachofas de la abuela recipes are closely guarded secrets. Typically Murcian – and also found south of Alicante – expect to fall hard for beautifully textured artichoke hearts with the soft crunch of pine nuts. They say don’t fill up on bread, but when cooked in a beef stock as good as this, it’s hard to resist an enthusiastic mop-up.
