In a Roman Kitchen
Timeless Recipes from the Eternal City
A unique celebration of the classic foods and flavors of Rome From the savory splendor of crisply fried artichokes to the easy indulgence of spaghetti alla carbonara cooked perfectly al dente, the cooking of Rome is every bit as glorious as the city’ s breathtaking art and architecture. "In a Roman Kitchen" explores the delights of this rich culinary heritage with a spectacular tour of the markets, ingredients, and classic recipes of the Eternal City. Author Jo Bettoja invites readers into her storied kitchen to share over 200 authentic recipes from Roman home kitchens that are sophisticated, yet accessible, like Hazelnut Semifreddo; Artichokes, Fava Beans, and Peas (La Vignarola); and Spareribs and Sausages with Polenta. With striking halftone photographs of the city taken by top Italian photographer Paolo Destephanis, this book is a delicious ode to the gustatory pleasures of one of the world’ s best-loved cities.
