Title: Eating Rome
Author: Elizabeth Minchilli
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press Publicity
Elizabeth Minchilli has been eating her way through Rome since she was 12 years old. Eating Rome, based on her popular blog Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome, is her homage to the city that feeds her, literally and figuratively. Her story is a personal, quirky and deliciously entertaining look at some of the city’s monuments to food culture. Join her as she takes you on a stroll through her favorite open air markets; stop by the best gelato shops; order plates full of carbonara and finish the day with a brilliant red Negroni.
Coffee, pizza, artichokes and grappa are starting points for mouth-watering stories about this ancient city. Illustrated with Minchilli’s beautiful full-color photos and enriched with her favorite recipes for Roman classics like vignarola, carciofi alla romana and carbonara, Eating Rome is the book that you want if you are planning your first trip to Rome or if you have been to Rome a dozen times. And even if you just want to spend a few hours armchair traveling, Elizabeth Minchilli is the person you want by your side.
This book is like the ultimate guide to Rome. Scattered with recipes through out on lovely roman meals. If your like most people when you arrive in Italy you want one of two things and that is Gelato or Pizza. Elizabeth describes how to go about both of these in her book. However, my favorite part and the one I would go for when in Italy is the cured meat especially pork. If your planning a trip to Rome this book is an absolute must. It doesn’t leave my bedside table.
