Cooking the Roman Way: Authentic Recipes from the Home Cooks and Trattorias of Rome

Cooking the Roman Way: Authentic Recipes from the Home Cooks and Trattorias of Rome Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rome is the most beloved city in Italy, if not the world. Rich in culture, art, and charm, the Eternal City is also home to some of the most delicious and accessible cooking in all of Italy. Influenced by both the earthy peasant fare of the surrounding hillsides and the fish from the nearby Mediterranean, Roman food makes the most of local ingredients and simple, age-old techniques. Yet while Italian cookbooks abound, no American book has focused on Romes unique and varied fare. In this beautifully illustrated cookbook, author David Downie and photographer Alison Harris offer a comprehensive collection of more than 125 Roman recipes, exploring the lively, uncomplicated food traditionally served in Roman homes and trattorie. From well-known dishes like Spaghetti Carbonara, to popular snack food like Pizza Bianca, to distinctive specialties like Roast Suckling Lamb, each recipe in Cooking the Roman Way is simple, authentic, and easy to make at home. With four-color photographs of landmarks, markets and food, stories about and profiles of food vendors, entertaining anecdotes, and a food lovers guide to the streets of the city, this book paints a vivid picture of Rome and the food that has sustained it for millennia.

About the Author

David Downie is the author of Enchanted Liguria: A Celebration of the Culture, Lifestyle, and Food of the Italian Riviera. His food and travel articles have appeared in many publications, including Saveur, Departures, and the Los Angeles Times Magazine.
