The purple artichoke is a variety grown mainly in central Italy. Roman gastronomes cherish this unique variety for its amenability with so many other ingredients. Chef Luisa Silvia found a small organic farm in the United States that is currently cultivating these vegetables. She was attracted to the idea of using them for the week end special using the fresh elegance of her personal recipe.
