1 In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs, anchovies, capers, pine nuts, raisins, parsley, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir in two tablespoons of the oil.
2 Gently spread the leaves apart. Stuff the artichokes loosely with the bread crumb mixture, also adding a little stuffing between the leaves. Do not pack the stuffing in.
3 Stand the artichokes in a pot just large enough to hold them upright. Add water to a depth of 3/4 inch around the artichokes. Drizzle with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Pour the wine around the artichokes.
4 Cover the pot and place it over medium heat. When the water comes to a simmer, reduce the heat to low. Cook 40 to 50 minutes (depending on the size of the artichokes) or until the artichoke bottoms are tender when pierced with a knife and a leaf pulls out easily. Add additional warm water if needed to prevent scorching. Serve warm or at room temperature.
