I am not sure if Artichoke Francaise is a an appetizer or main course! I just ate 2 of them as an appetizer while making dinner.. Give this recipe a try and you can substitute flours to make this a paleo recipe or gluten free. —Cindy Anschutz

I've been making artichokes Francaise since the mid 80's! Yes the mid 80's!!! I fisrt was introduced to it by a talented head chef who worked at a Resataurant that I worked at back in Jersey. It went over so big after he used it as a special that the owners put it on the menu... I since brought it into my family. My kids make it and they've shared it with their friends as well. Amazingly mouth watering with nice Italian Baguette to dip in the juices and a glass of pinot you'll think you died and went to heaven!!! If you've never had it you absolutely need to make this. Ut will be worth your while.

This recipe is delicious & yes, we thought it would be a mid-afternoon snack. It was dinner! As good or better than any restaurant quality & I have worked at & dined at many quality restaurants!
