Piccola Cucina: Sicilian Inspired Artichoke

Autumn is finally here. I know, I know the official first day of Autumn was September 20th. But there’s something about October that seems to scream Autumn is HERE. 

Happy October, Dahlings — I pray this month is everything you intend on it being. 

As I write this short note to you today, I’m thinking about the Sicilian Inspired Artichokes at Piccola Cucina. 

If you are like me and are looking for your next must-try dish. Piccola Cucina’s Carciofi Alla Romana gratin in salsa di Parmigiano is a Roman Jewish-style artichoke with a Sicilian twist. It is pretty exciting, and I can’t wait to try it.

To prepare this tasty dish, the artichoke hearts are fried, covered in sautéed Mollica breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, EVOO, and Parmesan cheese, smoked with rosemary, and served on top of artichoke cream.

In the end, we’re presented with this lighter version of the Roman artichoke made in a Sicilian way, and it is guaranteed to be Unforgettable.

Let me know what you think — is this a dish you’d try?
