Today we made Artichauts Au Naturel ( Whole Boiled Artichokes), Sauce Hollandaise (Hollandaise Sauce), and Filets de Poisson Bercy aux Champignons (Fish Filets Poached in White Wine with Mushrooms).
The fun part was not only cooking the artichoke, but learning how to eat it!! I have never had artichoke before, and did not know how good it is. One thing I learned is not to stick your finger in the artichoke heart because it really hurts to take it back out!! (I will post pictures later so you will know what I'm talking about.) You dip the artichoke leaves in the Hollandaise sauce and it is absolutely divine.
The fish was good, but this family doesn't seem to like mushrooms very well. The mushrooms seemed to overpower the taste of the fish.
