My love affair with artichokes began when I was very small. I can't remember a time I didn't eat them.
Girona is known to have one of the best preserved Jewish ghettos in Europe and I was happy for a chance to explore it.
This spring, I finally fulfilled my dream of traveling to the Emerald Isle, where we spent two wonderful weeks exploring as much as possible.
Our eighth Plate to Plate challenge is a lovely dip for any time of the year, but perfect for spring and summer when fresh vegetables are available.
