Artichokes recipe: tian, from Liguria


I have already been posting this recipe in Italian (see HERE for the whole post) and yesterday, fixing this dish for lunch, I decided to make an album on Steller with step-by-step pics: in a couple of hourse it got 26 LIKE and thats why I am posting this recipe with artichokes in English here on my web page.

La ricetta in Italiano e’ gia’ sul blog (basta seguire il link proposto qui sopra), e ieri -mentre preparavo questo piatto per pranzo- ho deciso di creare un album con le foto passo-passo su Steller: in due ore ha totalizzato 26 MI PIACE e allora ho deciso di postare la ricetta anche in Inglese qui sulla mia pagina.

This Italian dish  is very tasteful and easy to fix and the recipe is my grandma’s one, but any woman in Liguria has her own way or fixing artichokes in a similar way.
Tian means pan: this is an artichokes pan to be baked in the oven.
In Genovese (local dialect) artichokes is said ardiciocche which is more similar to the English word than to the Italian one, carciofi!

E’ un piatto italiano (ligure) molto saporito e facile da realizzare e la ricetta e’ quella di mia nonna, ma direi che ogni donna in Liguria abbia la sua personale versione del medesimo piatto.
Tian e’ il tegame,e questo piatto e’ in effetti un tegame di carciofi fatti al forno.
In Genovese carciofi si dice ardiciocche, con un termine molto piu’ simile all’inglese artichokes che all’italiano.

Since I believe people from abroad might be interested not only in a recipe with artichokes, but also in the environment where the dish is made and the reason why it is fixed in this way, I included a very few words about my land, Liguria, a narrow stripe of land compressed between Mediterranean sea and Appennini Mountains, in the North-West of Italy, where the land is poor but the views are breathtaking.

Poiche’ credo che chi e’ lontano dall’Italia sia interessato non solo alla ricetta, ma anche al contesto nel quale il piatto viene preparato, e alle ragioni per le quali lo si fa in questo modo, aggiungo alcune parole sulla mia terra d’origine, la Liguria, una stretta striscia di terra compressa tra il Mediterraneo e gli Appennini, nel Nord-Ovest d’Italia, dove il terreno e’ povero, ma i panorami sono mozzafiato.

Vegetables such as artichokes, but really all veggies, are grown despite to the land, which is steep and rocky, so that farmer through the centuries had to work hard to pick stones away and build terraces to grow their green.

Le verdure come i carciofi, ma tutte in effetti in generale, vengono coltivate a dispetto del territorio, che i contadini nei secoli hanno dovuto spietrare e terrazzare.

I hope you will enjoy the recipe and the pics that come just here below.
To stop each slide, just put your mouse on each one; to let them slide, put your mouse aside

Spero che piaccia la ricetta e piacciano le foto che vedrete qui sotto.
Per fermare una slide e leggerla con calma, basta soffermarvisi sopra col mouse; per farla scorrere, basta alzare il mouse.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

  4. Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a massive amount work?
