The first artichokes are a sure sign of spring!

Gratin of artichokes with anchovies
Stuffed artichokes are almost a meal on their own. And great as a dish as part of a buffet table.
This recipe uses one of the best lamb cuts – the boned middle loin of lamb, sometimes known as the rib-eye or backstrap.
Rhubarb and cinnamon cake
This well-known dessert is somewhere between a pudding and a cake. Serve with rich vanilla custard and a spoonful of stewed rhubarb.
