Roman Artichokes | Learn about Roman-Style Artichokes


Anthony’s first preferred antipasto is Roman-Style Artichokes, or carciofi con gambo. These tender artichokes are grown only in Puglia, and harvested in late April. Prepared with rosemary and basil, Roman-Style Artichokes have a sweet, delicate flavor and unique shape that makes it easy to serve them “as is.” But these artichokes are also great in cooking. Check out Anthony’s favorite ways to use them—plus look inside an artichoke to see how to tell they were harvested at just the perfect moment. Visit the Antipasti catalogue to purchase Roman-Style Artichokes. For another great antipasto, Borretane Cipolline Onions, and a delicious recipe, see the next segment of the video.
