I carciofi e i funghi di Alessandro Conti e Gabriele la Rocca

Alessandro Conti and Gabriele La Rocca‘s shop

the artichokes and mushrooms

For Alessandro Conti and Gabriele La Rocca, artichokes and mushrooms are the sunlight and shade of the forest, bitter and sweet. Beware of these two!
They have very different personalities, Alessandro Conti – owner of the historic fruit and vegetable shop that’s been in the market of Campo de’ Fiori for four generations – and Gabriele La Rocca, from Oriolo Romano, with all the experience of his old mushroom-hunting family. They share a great passion: for artichokes and mushrooms.
It was first professional connection, then a friendship that led them to open a shop at the Mercato, where they prepare, in front of everyone, dishes with artichokes in all the ways permitted by this tasty and versatile prickly plant with a tender heart. Raw, dressed, sautéed or roasted, the artichoke is always good, as are the mushrooms, cooked to their best according to their characteristics and seasonality.
