The latest cookbook I have added to my ever growing collection is “Tasting Rome” by Katie Parla and Kristina Gill.
This book was a treat for the eyes, palate and soul! I love the new cookbooks as they not only include wonderful recipes for the reader to try out but also include history, great photography and the ability to transcend the reader to the place of origin.
Recipes in this book include items from meats to sweetbreads and all things regional to Rome.
The pictures and steps to prepare are done well even for the beginner cook, although not all ingredients may be readily available based on where you live.
I appreciated the history of the region and the dishes and although being Italian I may know more than others who are not, I still learned some great new dishes I want to make.
Give it a whorl…Tortica Rustica, Pizza Al Contrario, I Cracker, Suppli Classici and Polpette di Bollito are now on my short list.
If you collect regional cookbooks, give this one a try!
