Artichokes Gombitelli Style



The recipe I am presenting today is a typical dish of Gombitelli, I taught it to my grandmother Mariarosa, original gombitellese.

Mariarosa was the wife of Alfonso Rossi, who was a great butcher in our pork butcher for decades, I have already spoken of him in the article ‘The invention of the Heart of Lardo’; Mariarosa was one of our volunteers and still is an excellent cook![/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Products used in this recipe” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”]
