Based on her blog, Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome, Eating Rome is Minchilli's homage to the city that feeds her, literally and figuratively. While Italian food tops most lists of favorite cuisines, Rome is a city people dream about; but, it's a city that can be hard to navigate like a native. Fear not: In Eating Rome Minchilli shows you just how to live the good life in The Eternal City. Minchilli has organized Eating Rome around the highlights of Roman food culture -coffee, pasta, gelato, shopping in the market, the soft-landing of an after-dinner amari, the heavenly taste of cream-filled pastries, the delights (yes) of offal, etc. -and opens her little black book of recommendations to the best Rome has to offer. The chapters include: The City that Feeds Me, Rome's Perfect Restaurant (At Least For Me), How to Eat Pizza Like a Roman - and many more. Illustrated throughout with Minchilli's beautiful full-color photos and enriched with her favorite recipes for specialties like vignarola, Eating Rome will be indispensable for people who love Rome and visit often or for those who are planning their first trip. Even if you just want to spend a few hours armchair traveling, Elizabeth Minchilli is the person you want by your side when you fly to Rome.
