This Mediterranean-inspired experience focuses on why spring is fantastic. Plump artichokes are entering their peak, and we pare them down so all that is on your plate is a tender, seasoned whole artichoke, minus the tough outer parts. All this coincides with the end of a great citrus season, which we feature in a traditional Tunisian orange cake, glazed with candied kumquats and accented with a whipped cashew cream. See you soon!
