Does anyone know if artichoke hearts are available in Jakarta?

From http://www.cookhot.com/cooking-recipes/1-recipes/101-baked-artichokes-with-lemon-garlic-and-basil

2 large artichokes
1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 basil leaves, chopped
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
1/2 cup, chicken stock
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. With kitchen scissors, trim all the sharp ends off of each leaf. Wash the artichoke well in cool water. Slice down the center to form two halves. Clean out all the fuzzy hairs and smaller leaves with a spoon then immediately rub all the cut areas with a lemon.

Next combine the olive oil, basil, minced garlic, lemon juice, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper in a bowl. Mix until it becomes a paste. I rubbed it all over the artichoke halves and inside the leaves.

Coat the baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. Place each artichoke half top side down in a baking dish. Pour the chicken stock in the dish and cover with a lid or tin foil. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until soft and tender. Enjoy!

i think you will be battling. they're a temperate climate crop, highly unlikely to be grown here.

but more to the point, what are you doing cooking? are the nest-building instincts kicking in? next you'll be pushing a trolley ...

Eating contest winner chokes to death in Taiwan

Oct 24th, 2008 | TAIPEI, Taiwan -- A student in Taiwan has died right after winning an eating contest at a university campus, apparently choking on Chinese steamed buns filled with cheese and eggs.

Local newspapers Apple Daily and United Daily News say 23-year-old Chen Chun-ing dashed to the bathroom after swallowing two buns in one minute. Other students found him lying on the floor soon afterward.

The papers say Chen was rushed to hospital but failed to respond to resuscitation efforts.

As competition winner, Chen would have won 2,000 New Taiwan dollars ($60).
