April is for Artichokes

Artichokes are a sign of spring in Italy. Every April, this member of the thistle family is celebrated in Tuscany at the Sagra del Carciofo Artichoke Festival.

We feature Baby Artichokes Three Ways with fresh carciofini in a trio of delicious preparations—romano battered and fried, balsamic marinated, and sautéed with pomodoro and capers.
