anyone know where to find fresh cardoons (preferably west side)?
Sorrento's in Culver City has them occaisionally, probably grown at the owner's farm.
I have seen them in the past at Claro's Italian Markets. No locations on the west side, sorry.
Isn't it a little early for cardoons? They're usually in season fall/winter.
You can usually substitute artichokes in any cardoon recipe (or vice versa).
Yes- the cardoons are all either at the beginning or end of their blooming and soon to be chopped to the ground.
besides in the wild where do you find them?
yes, it is early but all the talk of mangosteens made me think of them. there's a stew of cardoons that i have a taste for now that the light outside is looking autumnal. thx
Gelson's generally has them, and you can get them at the larger farmers' markets (Santa Monica Wednesday will have them for sure), but autumnal light or not, it's too early.
as a regular, i've never seen them at the sm wednesday market. i thought i was a hawk but now i feel like the opposite
