Creamy Comtoise artichoke gratin


Creamy Comtoise artichoke gratin
This is an artichoke recipe with a difference: we'll be using both heart and leaves, first steamed, then lightly sautéed before being blended with cancoillotte cheese to make a creamy purée. This is then browned in individual ramekins.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 20 min.
Creamy Comtoise artichoke gratin
Steam 4 globe artichokes.

Discard the fibrous choke and dice the heart. Add to the bowl.

Prepare all the artichokes like this (yes, I know it's tedious).
