Carciofi alla giudia, or "Jewish-style artichokes", is one of the most famous dishes of Roman Jewish cuisine. These are deep-fried artichokes, that were first prepared in the Jewish community of Rome.
The original recipe calls for a local artichoke variety, called the "mammola" romana, and was usually prepared during the celebration of Yom Kippur.
Carciofi alla Giudia are a mainstay of Roman cuisine. Close your eyes and imagine yourself enjoying these delightful creations in the cobblestone streets near the river Tiber... Make sure they're fried to a crisp perfection, and serve with a generous squeeze of lemon.
Serve them hot and sizzling with lemon quarters. Delicious... just like in Rome!
