Traditional Artichokes Barigoule

artichokes barigoule

Artichokes barigoule, also named braised artichokes in white wine, is classified as a traditional springtime vegetable dish from the Provence region in France. This classic dish consists of artichoke hearts braised in white wine, a technique formerly used to preserve.

The dish is served warm but at the same time it is light and tangy because of the sharpness of the wine. It can be served as an appetizer, as a topping on pasta or rice, or as a side dish with white fish or meat.

This dish can be made with fresh or canned artichoke hearts and onions, garlic, root vegetables and prosciutto or pancetta are often included but the unique flavour and aroma of the artichoke will remain.
