Thanks for your rating
The cardoon (French: "cardon") is a thistle-like vegetable cultivated in the Geneva Region and neighbouring canton Vaud. It tastes of artichoke and is popular especially during colder months baked in a gratin sauce (gratin de cardon). The cardoon was introduced in the 17th century by Huguenots who had fled to French-speaking Switzerland.
