I would not want to subject anyone to my cooking, but perhaps someone might want to do something with the following, from page 87 of "The Paper Moon," by Andrea Camilleri:

"Back in the house, he opened the refrigerator. Adelina must have come down with an acute form of vegetarianism. Caponata and a sublime pasticcio of artichokes and spinach."

Thanks for the suggestion, Peter. Caponata is definitely in my list of Sicilian dishes to try.

Peter

Now that I have read about caponata, I shall have to try it, or at least learn what it is.

With respect to artichokes, I never liked them until I had an excellent carciofi alla giudecca -- in Rome, of course.

Have you read "The Janissary Tree" by Jason Goodwin? It contains some tasty food-preparation scenes: onions, skewers, sizzling fish and so on. The book is good, too, so far.

Hi Peter. In time you will learn about caponata from my blog. My mother makes outstanding carciofi alla giudia. I am glad the ones you tried made you change your mind about artichokes.
Thanks for the book suggestion: I will add it to my list. I am currently reading "Reasonable Doubts" by Gianrico Carofiglio and I am enjoying it a lot.
