A delicious combination of raw vegetables, cooked potatoes, hard boiled eggs, poached cod and carpaccio (thinly sliced beef tenderloin) with a wonderful garlic mayonaisse served in an artichoke.
Spoon some of the aioli sauce into the center of each artichoke.
Place an aioli-filled artichoke in the middle of each plate, and arrange the cod, carpaccio, prepared vegetables, and eggs around it in a spoke-like fashion, making sure each plate has some of all. Sprinkle with parsley and capers.

Puree garlic in a food processor or blender. Whisk the egg yolks in a small bowl until light and smooth, and add to the garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste, lemon juice, and mustard, and process to a smooth paste.
With the machine still running, add the oil, very slowly, into the mixture in a constant, steady stream, blending constantly. Con- tinue the blending until you obtain a thick, shiny, firm sauce. Transfer to a storage container, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use.
