Overview

"Born and raised in Rome, Sara Manuelli reveals its gastronomic secrets: the tiny restaurants tucked away on side streets and frequented religiously by locals, the specialty shops selling gourmet ingredients and artisan produce. This is the ultimate guide to Rome, illustrated with photographs of Sara's favorite Roman people and places." "Each chapter introduces an area of Rome, its restaurants, food, markets and people. Once a Jewish ghetto, the Ghetto e Isola Tiberina, for example is the home of specialty restaurants and ingredients that recall ancient Roman-Jewish culinary influences." Each area of Rome is accompanied by a selection of recipes from the local restaurants - simple dishes that make the most of the ingredients like vine-ripened tomatoes, legumes, pancetta, lamb, artichokes, mozzarella, and fresh egg pasta.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Few cookbooks allow readers to dine truly as the Romans do, but city native Manuelli has written a masterful culinary survey that doubles as a valuable travel guide. Cleverly organized according to city sections, the cuisine tour starts in the Campo dei Fiori neighborhood, home to the city s celebrated fruit, vegetable and flower market by day, and to beautiful, tanned Roman[s] with a chilled glass of Prosecco by night. Manuelli leads readers from the upscale Piazza Navona district, Campo Marzio and the Spanish Steps region to the restaurant-rich Trastevere, home to the Romani di Roma real Romans, with a flair for storytelling.. Manuelli also includes culinary treasures beyond city limits, one of which La Briciola,a restaurant in the village of Grottaferrata is strategically located along the route to the Pope s summer villa. Manuelli shares all the recipes that form the cornerstone of her city s famed cuisine, and provides readers with a food lovers address book for each of the city s neighborhoods that covers bakeries, delis, wine shops and ristoranti usually missed by the casual tourist. Color photographs by Linder make the streets of the Eternal City come to life. (Apr.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
