News From Morso


Within the first week, many of you came forward and purchased the Loyalty Diner’s card for 2015. By purchasing the cards, you are getting the advantage of receiving more for your money with our added value cards, and at the same time, you are helping us to raise the money for our terrace expansion program. Last week we raised $60K, a wonderful start to getting to our ultimate goal of $250K.  Thank you for your support! Let’s continue to work together to GrowMorso.



To make this fried baby artichoke dish, take the tough outer leaves and stems off the artichokes. Cut off the prickly tops of the remaining leaves and soak each one in water and lemon juice so they don’t turn black as you work. When finished, take them out of the water and, with the heel of your hand, press down on each artichoke so the leaves loosen and separate a bit. Fill a large pan with enough olive oil to let the artichokes float and set over high heat until the oil gets very hot and smoky. Put all the artichokes in at one time and fry them until they are brown and crispy. They should come out crunchy on the outside and tender and juicy inside. Once they are cooked, put them in a bowl with the olive oil still clinging to the leaves. Add garlic, salt, pepper and chopped mint. Mix and add a little lemon juice if you like.
