Gianni finally received his new deep-fryer in the mail... so what's the first thing he tests with it? Whole-fried artichokes, of course.
In Rome, these are called Carciofi all Giudia (literally Jewish-style artichokes) and they are one of Rome's most famous dishes.
These were a delicious lunch for us today. I love it when Gianni "practices" in the kitchen!
