A beautiful place welcoming beautiful people and just around the corner. That's how I cook my artichokes, with dill and broad beans in shell. Delicious.
Have not had a decent cider since 1955.

Thanks all, I will get around to posting more, very soon.

Lyse - non, en fait c'est l'autre côté de la Baie de Morlaix, un coin que nous fréquentons assez souvent. Les gens qui tiennent les chambres d'hôtes sont super-gentils, et nous donnent toujours quelque chose, habituellement le cidre fait maison, et cette fois les artichauts. La fenouille y pousse partout aux bords des routes, et je l'ai ramassé juste pour mettre dans la maison comme decoration - je ne suis pas folle pour le gout!

Ellena - It is an amazingly beautiful place, a real treasure and very dear to us. I thought we'd finished with artichokes - those I harvested from the garden earlier this year came from a plant this same Paul at Kerbriou gave us a couple of years ago. These are his little, end-of-season ones; I've just halved, scraped, blanched and frozen them all for later. The cider is home made and very 'real', quite heavy and sweet, not too strong, with a slight edge of mustiness to it which is actually not unpleasant. I like the commercial cider round here too, and there's a cider farm just up the road which does a good one. The blackberries are really good this year, and I'm making crème de mûre for kir breton.

Thank you for your lovely hello this morning. I'm sending one back to you with great affection.

Artichokes always remind me of Brittany. I was given one at the age of 8 on my first trip abroad - this to Saint-Georges-de-Didonne‎ - and hated it. These look lovely. Maybe I should return and have another go!

Artichokes - only time I've had them was in Paris, with a host family, in 1967. Seemed to me like scraping cardboard with one's teeth but maybe my tastes have become more sophisticated by now. They make a lovely photo, anyway.
