Here is how you do it
Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C. Peel the artichokes and cut into approx. 0.5 cm slices. Cut the shallots into wedges and finely chop the garlic. Mix everything together with the crème fraîche, and add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.
Spoon the mixture into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the grated Jarlsberg® cheese on top. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 30-40 minutes Serve with fresh herbs and freshly ground black pepper.
