Artichoke Sushi!

That's what it's all about at the Artichoke Festival in Castroville, California. And being that we were THE artichoke family this year, that's what we were all about last weekend for the 51st Annual Artichoke Festival.

From a farmers' market to cooking demos and sampling the chef's creations, it was one big ode to the edible thistle.

Here was one of my favorites - the offering from Chef Uncangco from Roy's at Pebble Beach: artichoke sushi! Instead of a roll topped with fish, thinly sliced artichokes were draped over the top and drizzled with a mango sauce. It was fantastic!
