Stuffed artichokes at the San Gennaro Festival in New York
The first artichoke I had at San Gennaro was very close to perfection – extremely tender, just enough breadcrumbs with cloves of roasted garlic inside, and a nice surprise of melted parmesan and olives at the bottom. 9/10 on the chokescale.
The second artichoke was breadcrumbs-a-plenty. A little tougher, and a little messier. The saving grace of this artichoke was that the breadcrumbs were gooey and had red pepper and garlic interspersed. 5/10 on the chokescale.
I plan to review these and more artichokes at restaurants in Little Italy – stay tuned!
