Q: This may seem like a stupid question but I'm looking for a specific term to throw around to potential caterers for my wedding. I would love to have artichokes cooked in the style I learned from my mom. She simply clipped the tips, boiled for 40 minutes, scooped out the inedible choke, and drizzled Italian dressing along the leaves.
After sitting for about 5 minutes they are perfect. Nothing extra, no stuffing, no butter. Does anyone else eat artichokes this way? What should I call this when talking to a caterer? Steamed? Boiled?!

Editor: Readers — this is a question for you! What would you call this sort of artichoke preparation?
