Cucina Romana

Born and raised in Rome, Sara Manuelli reveals its gastronomic secrets: the tiny restaurants tucked away in side streets and frequented religiously by locals, the specialist shops selling gourmet ingredients and artisan produce. This is the ultimate guide to Rome, lusciously illustrated with photographs of Manuelli's favorite Roman people and places. Each chapter introduces an area of Rome-its restaurants, food, markets, and people-and is accompanied by a selection of local recipes. The final chapter discusses Rome's light and refreshing wines and gives suggestions about which ones should be served with particular dishes. Cucina Romana reveals the beating heart of this magical city. In a place where food is at the center of life and culture, there is only one way to really get a taste of Rome. "A solid exploration of Italy's most distinctive urban cuisine, traditional and innovative... Cucina Romana is a lively little neighborhood-by-neighborhood exploration of what makes the food of Italy's biggest city so fascinating, by a writer raised near the famous Campo dei Fiori, with its amazing produce market and food shops. The recipes are a mix of the very classic (spaghetti alla carbonara) and restaurant modern (whole onions baked in sea salt). Both the food and street photography is almost like being there, without the Vespa din." -Los Angeles Times
