method

1. Strip off and discard the base, leaves and spiny outer stalks of the cardoon.

2. Detach the stalks and cut them into pieces about 9 cm (3 in) long and immerse them in a large bowl of water acidulated with the lemon juice. Beat the egg with salt and pepper in a deep dish.

3. Drain the cardoons and pat dry then coat them in the beaten egg, and roll them in the breadcrumbs to coat well.

4. Heat the butter and oil in a nonstick pan, add the cardoons and cook over a low heat for a few minutes, turning them once, until golden and barely tender.

5. Drain on a paper towel and serve immediately.
