Whole Artichokes with Stem Romana Style in Olive Oil

These elegant long stemmed artichokes are pretty and big. You, of course, could cut them up and make a recipe … though you could do the same with Carciofi alla Romana (One of the most famous artichoke recipes) using artichoke hearts without the stem.

Instead, think beauty. Lay just one artichoke down gently on a plate. Dress it up with some fresh mint and parsley leaves ... or not.

Gently slice it with a sharp paring knife and eat it one enjoyable piece at a time. Fork it for your first bite.

The result is a bite filled with flavor and a wonderful mouth-feel. The bite is not-too-soft, but tender, with just the right resistance and a gentle artichoke-y crunch. The leaves and the heart have their own bite and marry well together. Unlike the grocery artichoke hearts that you get preserved in brine, there is no mushy-ness here, and the leaves are soft enough to easily chew - at least 99-precent of the time.

The long stem is just an extension of all the joy that a Romana style Artichoke heart has. It is, all on its own, an appetizer you could serve at suave table for one. Or even more …

PLUS, artichoke hearts are good for you! I eat 1 to 2 a day -- keeps those gall bladder spasms away. Like a charm! Plus, I'm getting one of my daily servings of veggies. Perfect!

Artichokes with Stems
This was not my favorite--I found this item to be disappointing because every other product that I have purchased from the ChefShop has been just outstanding. We ate the artichokes as an appetizer They were definitely pretty and big. We found the flavor to be just okay. We did not find the bite to be "soft and tender" but somewhat too "crunchy" and "stringy". They are definitely edible--just not to my liking. I would not purchase this product again. I would not, however, tell anyone not to try it as everyone's tastes are different. It is definitely a UNIQUE product.

Fabulous Artichokes!
We just tried these artichokes for the first time! We truly LOVED them! We served them on top of vine ripened tomatoes with fresh basil and fine slices of spring milk parmigiana reggiano - also from Chef Sop - and the results we just fabulous. The artichokes were perfect and delicious! A new staple for our pantry!!
