Roman Cuisine

Roman recipes are among Italy’s most famous. Who doesn’t know carbonara? And what about amatriciana? One of my favorites is cacio e pepe with cheese and ground pepper. Roman cuisine is strongly affected by Jewish culinary traditions. And that’s why, for example, artichokes are very common here. A typical meat dish, instead, is saltimbocca alla romana: veal escalops with ham and sage on top. We also have great bread in and around Rome. Ask for the rose-shaped rosette or for wood-baked lariano and genzano bread.
