When in Rome, eat as the Romans do! Discover the hidden gourmet joys of eating and drinking in Rome just like the locals. Organized by neighborhood, the book is a tour through the gourmet treasures of the eternal city and features detailed reviews of it's best restaurants, markets, and specialty shops. Diane Seed, a locally based food expert and teacher, packs each section with details about which products or wines to seek out, which local eateries are musts, and which not-to-be-missed dishes are authentically local such as the fried artichokes of Trastevere or the Orvieto from the hills outside the city. Seed divides Rome into nine prime areas to explore, coordinating her culinary suggestions with the major sites in each area sure to be on a visitor's itinerary. Peppered throughout are forty traditional Roman recipes usually taught at the author's cooking school in the Piazza Venezia neighborhood.
