The elegant

rtichokes and asparagus say spring to the cook. After a dreary winter of devising a dozen ways to cook chard or broccoli, it’s refreshing to go to the market and stock up on the season’s bounty. As vegetables go, artichokes aren’t easy. They are troublesome to prepare and messy to eat. But inside the thorny exterior is a vegetable that has been prized for its unique flavor since ancient times.

planted their prickly favorite. The first commercial artichoke fields were planted in Castroville in the 1920s. Castroville proclaims itself the artichoke capital of the world and celebrates with an artichoke festival, which will be held May 15 and 16 this year. Marilyn Monroe, then a young unknown, was crowned the festival’s California Artichoke Queen in 1948. Castroville is also home to the Giant Artichoke restaurant, which serves its

A tough and thorny exterior hides a delectable heart prized for centuries for its flavor Artichokes are thought to be native to Sicily. The plant is mentioned in Greek and Roman literature as far back as 77 A.D. Italians have been cooking artichokes for centuries. They boil them, fry them, bake them, and put them in sauce for pasta. When Italian immigrants came to California in the late 1800s, they soon

favorite vegetable in many ways, from soup to bread. Judging from restaurant reviews in Yelp, the food is not great, except for the deep fried artichoke hearts. Duarte’s Tavern in Pescadero is famous for artichoke soup, made with baby artichoke hearts, cream, chicken broth, and other good things.

Most of us are familiar with the large globe artichoke, but baby artichokes, long known to Italian cooks, have become trendy in the food world. Both Bon Appetit and Sunset magazines feature them in articles this spring. Baby artichokes are fully mature artichokes that grow closer to the ground, sheltered by the large leaves of the plant. They are easy to cook and prepare because the inner fuzzy portion of the choke does not develop, according to the Ocean Mist Farms Web site. To prepare them, snap off the lower petals until you reach the yellow-green core. Use a knife and cut of the top halfinch of the baby artichoke. Trim the stems and all remaining dark green areas from the base. Baby artichokes can be steamed over rapid boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes until tender. They may also be grilled, roasted or sauteed. Baby artichokes are available locally at Sigona’s markets in Redwood City and Palo Alto. Baby artichokes at Cedro

Penne with baby artichokes was one of the pasta specials that Maria Nevigato prepared for opera night recently at Cedro Ristorante Italiano, the family’s restaurant at 1010 El Camino Real, No. 140, in Menlo Park. Opera night takes place once a month

at Cedro and features three opera singers in a 30-minute performance, as well as dinner. The next opera night takes place Wednesday, April 21, with two seatings: 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Cedro is a family affair, with Maria as chef, her daughter, Elizabeth as manager, and Elizabeth’s father, Giuseppe, and brother, David, helping out. Although not of Italian descent, Maria Nevigato is a “born-again Italian” who learned to cook from her Italian-born mother-in-law, also named Maria. Maria’s mother and her future mother-in-law were good friends. “She was like a second mom to me,” the younger Maria says. Growing up in Menlo Park and East Palo Alto, Maria started cooking when she was about 9. One of the first things she learned to make was gnocchi, which she called “little pillows.” Penne with baby artichokes is a dish Ms. Nevigato says she can put together easily. “The beautiful thing about it is you can eat the See ARTICHOKES, page 23

HOW SHARP IS YOUR VISION? To determine visual acuity, a person must sit

20 feet in front of a Snellen Chart (“E Chart”) and read the printed letters. The distance of 20 feet is used for testing purposes because, at that distance, the eye is relaxed and its lens is in a neutral position (not trying to focus). At 20 feet, those with normal visual acuity can clearly read three-eighths-inch letters. They are said to have “20/20 vision” because at 20 feet from the chart, they see what a normally sighted person sees at

20 feet. When a person’s visual acuity is worse than normal, the second number will be larger than 20. Visual acuity is only one factor used to determine overall visual ability. There are many new styles in eyewear on the market today. If you have not had an opportunity to see these styles first hand, please visit MENLO OPTICAL at 1166 University Drive, on the corner of Oak Grove Avenue and University Drive. We carry a wide selection of eye-catching designer frames in several sizes, colors, and materials. Please call us at 322-3900 if you have any questions about this week’s column. We work with several ophthalmologists in the area and can recommend one to you. P.S. A person with 20/40 vision can see at 20 feet what a normally sighted person sees at 40 feet.

“Stripes,� a painting by Mitchell Johnson

Mitchell Johnson paintings exhibited at Flea Street Cafe Fine food and fine art come together at Flea Street Cafe in West Menlo Park: Paintings by Mitchell Johnson will be exhibited through April at Jesse Coolís flagship restaurant — just down the Alameda de las Pulgas from Mr. Johnsonís home. ÏTo have some paintings up at Flea Street is nice, because a lot of my shows are out of the area,Î said Mr. Johnson, a longtime Menlo Park resident. One such out-of-town show is currently featured at the Royal Danish Embassy in Washington, D.C., through April 26. Mr. Johnson has exhibited his work throughout the Bay Area and in many

areas of the United States and Europe, particularly in Italy, where he has for years spent much time painting the Tuscan landscape. But one can also view Mr. Johnsonís work from the comfort of the living room sofa, with the help of a DVD player. Three of his paintings played a role in the recent film ÏItís Complicated,Î starring Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. The landscapes — two from France and one from Denmark — were hung in the ÏhomeÎ of a key character in the movie, Mr. Johnson said. Go to mitchelljohnson. com to view some of the artistís work.

CITY OF MENLO PARK MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT PROPOSING WATER RATE INCREASES COMMUNITY MEETING APRIL 21, 2010 6:30-8:00 P.M. BURGESS RECREATION CENTER, ROOM 118 700 ALMA STREET, MENLO PARK The City of Menlo Park Municipal Water District purchases all of the water it provides to its customers from the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC).The SFPUC is planning, designing, and constructing multiple improvement projects to increase the safety and reliability of their Hetch Hetchy water supply system. In order to finance these improvements, the SFPUC has increased the wholesale water prices by more than 60% over the last four years and projects that their prices will double over the next five years. The City of Menlo Park Municipal Water District is proposing to phase in a series of water rate increases over the next five years as a result of these SFPUC wholesale rate increases. The City’s water rates currently consist of three components: (1) a fixed monthly charge based on meter size; (2) a capital surcharge per hundred cubic feet, ccf; and (3) a water usage charge based on metered water consumption. Rate increases are being considered for each component. The City will also be considering different rate structures for metered water consumption. The City will hold a Community Meeting to present information and answer any questions relating to the proposed rate increases. Information will also be available at the meeting to assist customers who would like to reduce their water bills through water conservation. Information is also available on the City’s website at or by phone at (650) 330-6740.
