    Manami's Note:

    "For me, anything prepared Francese style - that is, made with lemon, wine, butter and capers - is a rich and wonderful treat. You can serve these delicious artichoke hearts as a side dish or over toasted slices of Italian bread, crostini, for a terrific appetizer. Be sure to spoon the luscious juices over the artichoke hearts as you serve them." - Chef Claire Criscuolo at her restaurant Claire's Corner Copia.
