Artichoke Dip is a classic appetizer to serve your guests, and the perfect way to celebrate National Artichoke Heart Day! Our recipe for Spicy Artichoke Dip is super simple and completely indulgent. However, artichokes reportedly have one of the highest antioxidant capacities for vegetables (according to Wikipedia)- so there are some health benefits to enjoying this warm, bubbly treat.

Spicy Artichoke Dip to celebrate Artichoke Heart day from Lux Catering and Events



We recently had some fun experimenting in the kitchen and came up with these fun and absolutely delicious Artichoke Tapenade Canapés served on black squid ink bread, toasted, with shaved parmesan and red onion garnish. The bread was especially fun to make – our Executive Chef, Jane Hamilton, and Head Pasty Chef, Stephanie Romero, have wanted to experiment with black squid ink in some of our dishes and found a dramatic and contrasting effect with this appetizing black crostini bread.
