Carciofi alla Giudia

There's no telling how old this recipe is—it could conceivably date back to Imperial times, when the Roman Jewish community numbered about 50,000. In any case, Carciofi alla Giudia are a wonderful treat: they look like golden sunflowers and their leaves have a delicious nutty crunchiness. This recipe uses large artichokes. If you can get baby ones, try it. Either way there will be a "hit". Download recipe here.
