Artichokes and Fennel à la Barigoule
- 12 poivrade artichokes
- 1 lemon
- 2 fennel bulbs
- 1 carrot
- 1 small stick celery
- 1/2 white onion
- 1 thin slice air-dried bacon
- 4 garlic cloves
- 2 sprigs thyme
- 2 bay leaves
- 6 3/4 fluid ounces dry white wine (200 ml)
- 13 1/2 fluid ounces chicken stock (400 ml)
- 4 cloves garlic confit
- freshly ground black pepper
- olive oil
Step 1: Vegetables
Turn the artichokes. Halve them lengthwise and remove the choke. Place them in water with the juice of 1 lemon as you go along.
Remove the outer leaves of the fennel, and cut into 8 wedges. Wash and dry them.
Peel and wash the carrot and celery, and cut on the bias into approximately 3/4 inch (2 cm) pieces.
Peel and thinly slice the onion. Cut the bacon into very small lardons, about 2 to 3 mm thick.
In a flameproof casserole dish, brown the lardons in a teaspoon of olive oil for 1 minute. Add the pieces of carrot, celery, and onion, the garlic cloves, the thyme, and the bay. Stir well and cover the casserole dish with a lid. Cook over a low heat for just 3 minutes.
Add the artichokes and fennel. Add a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir well and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Add the wine, and allow to reduce by half. Add the chicken stock, stir, and cover the dish with a lid. Lower the heat and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until the artichokes and fennel are tender. Check with the tip of a knife.
