It’s no secret we love food. We love to cook it, eat it, and share it. To celebrate the vast Catering by Michaels repertoire, we want to take an opportunity to share some of those items which have become perennial favorites with clients and the entire Catering by Michaels family alike.

Today, we take a look at the humble and oh-so-delicious Parmesan Artichoke Dip.

Catering by Michaels Artichoke Parmesan Dip

Artichokes are a particular favorite in our kitchen. Sure, they are elegant and delicious, but they also have a fascinating history. The artichoke which we enjoy today—and which is featured in the recipe below—is a culinary mainstay. Written about by Greek philosopher and naturalist, Theophrastus (371-287 B.C.), the artichoke’s origin can be traced back to Italy and Sicily.


Closer to home, our chefs love to transform artichokes into delicious dishes for you and your guests.

And now you can transform artichokes into a rich, cheesy, and utterly satisfying dip in your own home kitchen.
