Artichoke leaf recipe

By Micail Swindells and Dom Horsey

Micail and Dom share a cheeky tip for making the Artichoke leaf that they have learnt from Geranium, a 3 Michelin star restaurant in Denmark.

The idea is not to just copy, but to understand the process that they have developed, get inspiration, and take different elements or ideas and make our own unique dishes.

Micail suggests adding fermented liquid to change the taste, or creating your own different and unique moulds. Let us know in the comments below what you have created using this recipe. We would love to see your pictures of the plated dish.

Tag us on Instagram so we can feature it- The boys from M/Y GO would also love to know their creation is being learned by many more yacht chefs out there this season.
