he Agnoli famiily pride them selves on keeping the artichokes they produce as natural as possible. The look and taste just as they would if you cooked them yourself.
The Roman Artichokes they use are a specially protected product or PGI ( Protected Geographical Indication). Only artichokes grown in and around Rome and within the provice of Latina, in southern Rome, can be sold as “Roman Artichokes”. They are quite rounded and characteristicly have a purple to green hue and very large choke.
The first thing you notice is that they are packed into a mixed oil of Olive and Sunflower seed oil that never dominates. The combination of herbs and a small amount of chilli and wine vinegar produce a light dressing that accetuates the natural flavour of the vegetable Some of the firmer artichoke leaves are left on making them naturally textural . The choke inside is firm and creamy with just a hint of the acidity required to keep the artichokes from darkening. This is an Artichoke you can say is freshly cooked. Eat these artichokes as a starter. Serve with peppered grilled sliced steak and rocket for a quick dinner. Add to pasta with garlic and lemon.
