Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Carbonara [Da Enzo al 29]

    • Lepa on November 01, 2018

      This recipe is absolutely mind-blowing. We visited Italy a couple of months ago and my sons became huge carbonara fans. My five year old loved it so much that he ate it once a day, every day, for three weeks. He has been asking me to recreate that experience since we got home so I've been working through the recipes in my collection and many were passable but none were even close to what we ate in Italy. Then I tried this recipe and it is THE ONE. It was just as good as the carbonara at the best restaurants we visited in Italy and better than the carbonara we had at most restaurants. Absolutely worth the price of this book.

  • Roman broccoli (Broccolo Romanesco) [Angelo Preziosi]

    • Ed on January 28, 2018

      Stop boiling before "just tender" (in recipe), less than 10 mins, so pan heat doesn't overcook to mushy.

    • Lepa on August 30, 2018

      This is a nice way to enjoy romanesco. My kids, who like cauliflower more than broccoli, enjoyed this (after I explained it was "fractal cauliflower") because I went easy on the chilis but if I were cooking just for adults I would kick up the heat a bit more.

Publishers Text

A love letter to Rome, with beautiful food and location photography, classic recipes, and stories from the heart of the Eternal City. Rome is an open-air museum; it’s a modern-day marvel of a city that has seen centuries of emperors, popes, movements, triumphs, and tragedies. It’s a city where the present and past sit side by side and interact in a beautiful, yet sometimes complex, kind of way. Rome begs to be uncovered at every turn. Through quirky local stories and glorious pictures, I Heart Rome takes you on an inspiring journey through the Rome that tourists rarely get to see.

In a country justifiably famous for its food, Rome boasts its own fascinating and unique cuisine that is intrinsically tied to its history. Influences from Ancient Rome through to more recent events are reflected in the food culture of the Eternal City today. And given the passionate nature of Romans as a people, it’s no wonder that dining is taken so seriously. From carbonara recipes to artichoke-frying techniques, just about everything food-related is up for—and causes much—debate in Rome.

You too will heart Rome after delving into this book.
