Diane Seed, a locally based food expert and teacher, packs each section with details about which products or wines to seek out, which local eateries are musts, and which not-to-be-missed dishes are authentically local such as the fried artichokes of Trastevere or the Orvieto from the hills outside the city. Seed divides Rome into nine prime areas to explore, coordinating her culinary suggestions with the major sites in each area sure to be on a visitor's itinerary.

We bought this book because we were going to be in Rome for three months, and I was going to be cooking in our apartment. There is a wealth of useful information for new Roman residents or for those on extended stays, and the recipes are wonderful, but it is a coffee-table book, not a guide book. With the new weight restrictions, we couldn't take it with us.
