Rome in September what to do about carciofi

gowest | Aug 31, 2011 04:33 PM

I was last in Rome about 5 or 6 years ago around Easter.

I remember eating very very well.
Interestingly, I have a strong suspicion that I ate artichokes for every meal.

I don't mean as a part of every meal but literally as the "main" for almost all of them :)
I exaggerate a little but not completely - as I can remember only 2 meals that didn't "feature" artichokes.

I speak Italian, and would regale the waiters with tales of my love of artichokes and was given them in every available style. The rest of my family would order "proper meals".

Can I eat them in September when they are not in season? Will I see them on the menus and will they be as delicious as I remember?

Are there some other specialities that I will see mid-September that I will enjoy?
Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.
