"Cooks who value history and context as crucial ingredients in their recipes will treasure Tasting Rome...One of the book's many strengths is its ability to translate several thousand years of the city's cuisine for today's reader and home cook...The authors cover some major territory here, culling the best of Rome from peripheral neighborhoods and downloading kitchen wisdom from both the city's more innovative restaurants and generations-old institutions." --New York Times Book Review"You'll see Rome though the eyes and taste buds of Katie Parla and Kristina Gill in this attractive new cookbook. They lightly sketch Roman history through its neighborhoods and their culinary specialties, like offal in Testaccio, Jewish foods from the ghetto and the cooking of Libyan immigrants. Along the way, they describe old recipes that have gone out of fashion and how chefs innovate based on them." --New York Times "A lively and educational read for anyone who has visited and fallen in love with the Eternal City, anyone planning a trip there (whether soon or someday), food history buffs, and fans of flatbread." --Epicurious "A fantastically detailed look into Rome's most remarkable dishes... a new classic in the Italian food library." --Saveur "Tasting Rome explores both modern Roman cuisine as well as the history of flavors and recipes that have evolved with the city's population." --Eater

Two Americans living in Rome write a love letter to their city, showcasing modern dishes influenced by tradition, as well as the rich culture of their surroundings.A love letter from two Americans to their adopted city, Tasting Rome is a showcase of modern dishes influenced by tradition, as well as the rich culture of their surroundings.Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine. Each is a mirror of its city's culture, history, and geography. But cucina romana is the country's greatest standout.Tasting Rome provides a complete picture of a place that many love, but few know completely. In sharing Rome's celebrated dishes, street food innovations, and forgotten recipes,journalist Katie Parla and photographer Kristina Gill capture its unique character and reveal its truly evolved food culture-a culmination of two thousand years of history. Their recipes acknowledge the foundations of Roman cuisine and demonstrate how it has transitioned to the variations found today. You'll delight in the expected classics (cacio e pepe, pollo alla romana, fiore di zucca); the fascinating but largely undocumented Sephardic Jewish cuisine (hraimi con couscous, brodo di pesce, pizzarelle); the authentic and tasty offal (guanciale, simmenthal di coda, insalata di nervitti); and so much more.Studded with narrative features that capture the city's history and gorgeous photography that highlights both the food and its hidden city, you'll feel immediately inspired to start tasting Rome in your own kitchen.
