    made her spaghetti carbonara and it was amaaaazing. I don't eat pork so I used some garlic beef sausage and it worked fine. I've never gotten carbonara to come out silky before, always had curdling issues, but not with this recipe. Bliss!

Publishers Text

When Rachel Roddy visited Rome in 2005, she never intended to stay. But then she happened upon the neighborhood of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centers around the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, and fell instantly in love. Thus began an Italian adventure that has turned into a brand new life. My Kitchen in Rome charts a year in Rachel's small Italian kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating, and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city.

Weaving together stories, memories, and recipes for thick bean soups, fresh pastas, braised vegetables, and slow-cooked meats, My Kitchen in Rome captures the spirit of Rachel's beloved blog, Rachel Eats, and offers readers the chance to cook "cucina Romana" without leaving the comfort of home.
