Judean is a strange translation of "alla Giudea/Giudia" which means "Jewish".

I just did a Google search and found (to my shock) several references to this dish as "Judean Artichoke". I'd never heard of it, either. And it does seem strange.

It is delicious,in any case,and a classic Roman dish....the goal is to fry the artichoke,while keeping the center tender.
G*d is in the details...

I have never tried cooking it at home, as I guess you need the Roman artichokes with the tender stems; I don't think it would work at all with the thistles we have here in England.

With the dish cited in this report, the whole artichoke, including the stem, was most enjoyable.

Artichoke of Judea

Do you think they perdeive this translation as more politically correct? The translation I've always known is, "Artichokes, Jewish style" i.e., fried.

honestly I was making a "Life of Brian" Joke. But yeah, I've always seen it as "Jewish style" or some variant of that, not Judean.
