Layered wonder Artichoke, carrot, celery and mayonnaise panino at ItALIA

A panini can contain a whole garden between its layers!

This is a very simple panino (Italian for ‘sandwich’) recipe. It’s all about different vegetables, some olive oil and butter.

The filling consists of artichokes, carrots and celery. Celery has a great freshness that is why I like it. If you eat artichokes raw and then have a sip of water it is cooler than mint – in the gourmet sense.

This panino is different because of the combination of celery and artichoke.

The mayonnaise helps to hold it together. People often say that mayo is from America, but actually, it has lent itself to all European nations. Some consider it Spanish! There’s a raging debate on where it is from! But whatever people say, it is definitely one of the six mother sauces.
