From an ancient Sicilian farmhouse recipe, the finest, most tender artichokes bathe in a rustic seasoning of local aromatic herbs and peppers which are then covered with Villa Reale's own quality extravirgin olive oil. The flavours slowly instil into the artichokes to produce an exceptional antipasto, a side complement to meat dishes or in salads. (See below for more suggested uses).

Artichokes are another jewel in the crown of Sicilian cuisine and every town or province on the island have their own recipe for them. As often is the case, the finest and most enduring are handed down over the generations by poor farming families. The preparation and selected ingredients for Villa Reale's farmhouse-style artichokes faithfully revives one of these. The result is a supremely tasty dish with harmonious flavours and a refined character.

Serve cold straight from the jar or can be heated up for a few minutes.


These artichokes are extremely versatile and easy to use. Just a few examples:

On their own as an elegant starter or combined with other antipasti as part of an Italian platter.

They are delicious paired with cheese and cured meats.

An inspired choice for risottos!

They complement meat dishes particularly well. Grilled chicken is wonderful paired with these artichokes.

Wonderful in a summery salad or diced into a rice or pasta salad.

They make a great sandwich or pizza topping too!


Artichokes, peppers, extravirgin olive oil, vegetable oil, natural herbs, white wine vinegar.
