Fricassee of globe artichokes, chanterelles and chorizo

With artichokes and chanterelles in season I thought it would be good idea to share this recipe!

The fricassee can be enjoyed with some crusty bread and a glass of wine or use it to accompany pork or chicken.

You can replace the artichoke with any vegetable of your choice and if you can’t get chanterelles then replace with your favourite mushroom.

Serves 2
