This carciofini sott’olio, or artichokes in oil recipe comes from Eleonora Galasso. The Khoollect team was lucky enough to have this recipe cooked for them by Eleonora herself. You can see how that went, here. This is what the Italian food interpreter said about this recipe:

‘I love the versatility of artichokes. Plenty of otherwise boring dishes acquire that muchneeded extra depth of flavour thanks to their addition. There are hundreds of time-consuming ways to prepare these irresistible artichoke hearts, but why should it take a lifetime to make them when it only takes a couple of minutes to eat them? This recipe is a quick and easy compromise – another way of having your artichoke and eating it, too.’

Hint: leave extra time to marinate your artichokes (at least two hours).
