Carciofi Alla Giudìa (Italian: Carciofi Alla Giudea), which literally translated from the Roman dialect means 'Jewish-style artichokes' is an 'antipasto' (starter) that originates from the Roman Ghetto; a Jewish ghetto that was established in 1555. Basically they are deep-fried artichokes which are quickly fried to so that the artichoke leaves become crispy and nutty, while the tasty artichoke hearts become tender and earthy. Other ingredients include lemon, salt, flour and oil for frying. This is a popular dish during the spring months when the local artichokes (Romanesco) from the north-west coastal region of Lazio are in season.
