I've always wondered who it was who first figured out how to prepare an artichoke. I mean, they are such nasty plants when raw that it's amazing that someone thought to cook them. Maybe they were very, very hungry. LOL!

I would start your search for that person around Castroville.

I wonder, whenever I boil them, who figured out how to eat artichokes in the first place. My best guess is that it was an accident----somone threw the thing into a boiling pot while no one else was looking.

The hungriest person ever had to be the first one to try raw oysters!
