    1. There are new several cookbooks out there on Italian cuisine this spring but this is definitely the one I ve been most excited about Focusing exclusively on Roman cuisine, the popular American blogger from Katie Parla showcases a wonderful assortment of the cucina povera that makes Rome such an exquisite food city Having lived in Rome myself and followed Katie s blog for some time, I found her choice of recipes and restaurants to spotlight well curated The photos are wonderfully done, showcasing [...]

    2. The Ex Pat dream ng in another country and exploring the food, art and culture This book isn t an Italian cookbook This is a memoir about life in Rome and it s filled, chock filled, with recipes and history about the dish and the area The photos are incredibly vibrant and you want to leap into the page, grab one of the savory pies Tortas and immerse yourself in the experience Of the many things I enjoyed looking through this book is the focus on using fresh and seasonal ingredients I am a pasta [...]

    3. Tasting Rome isn t your ordinary cookbook It s part recipes and part Roman history with a beautiful layout and cover The recipes all look really good and I can t wait to try all of the dishes but I wish there were pictures of the food This book has lots of lovely photos of Rome and its people but not too many food pictures One of my requirements of cookbooks is that they have to have photos for every recipe and this book falls short of that The recipes all sound so delicious that I m almost wil [...]

    5. A gorgeous hardcover cookbook, Tasting Rome had me within its first few pages Filled with mouth watering dishes, beautiful photographs, and write ups about Rome both past and present, I fell in love with this book at first glance Just the picture of a gelato stand was making my mouth water A closer look at the recipes has me a little mixed I love Italian food, but I am an American, and some of the dishes are a little outside my comfort zone Still, there are than enough other recipes to make up [...]

    6. For me this is yet another cookbook that should have been marketed as a book about food I enjoyed reading through it, especially since my family is from Italy and I have cousins in Rome But there are very few recipes, if any, that I ll actually cook for myself at home A surprising number of recipes are for fried food, which is difficult for most home cooks to produce successfully Other recipes call for ingredients that are difficult to procure, even in a foodie city like Seattle So while this ma [...]

    7. Italian food is so incredibly simple that it leaves me wondering why cookbook after cookbook try to comprehensively cover the subject This one is visually beautiful and contains many paragraphs on the history of the region and how it connects to its food This rounds it up to 4 but in reality it s a solid 3.5 for my personal taste While I d use a few notes from the baking chapter it s not something I need to buy Back to the library it goes.

    8. Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine mirrors of their culture, history, and geography But the cucina romana is the country s greatest standout Speakeasies, ten table restaurants, and street food stalls may not be the first things that come to mind when you think of Rome, but these new realities have joined the traditional bars and trattorias of the Italian capital as bastions of great food and drink In Tasti [...]

    9. Fun readI enjoyed reading this book, but as a cookbook it s not going to be useful Too much frying, which isn t scalable when cooking for one And ingredients not easily found turned up in too many recipes Also,many of the recipes didn t sound good I love Roman cooking and enjoy going out with locals when I m there, so I had been looking forward to this book.

    10. Tasting Rome Fresh Flavors and Forgotten Recipes from an Ancient City is as much travel memoir as cookbook Katie Parla and Kristina Gill provide a rich narrative story of the neighborhoods and culture of Rome Interviewing the chefs and bakers of Rome, they are able to share all sorts of inside knowledge and background.The organization is not the usual antipasti, primo, secondo, and dulce arrangement by cause Instead it organizes around themes, street food, the classics, immigrant fusion cuisines [...]

    11. Ahhhh Food from my favorite country Although I ve never spent time in Rome itself apart from the airport another story in itself , I love the flavors of Italy and I waited with great anticipation for this book It does not disappoint Tasting Rome is not just a cookbook Filled with history, tidbits of information and photos that draw you in and make you long to be there, Tasting Rome is an experience After the introduction, a section on Rome Then and Now and a section entitled About This Book none [...]

    13. I will officially thoroughly read this in 2017 I flipped through it, and it looks pretty decent I m putting the rating up because I really want this to at least be nominated in 2016 Choice Awards for Food Cookbooks so anyone who does read cookbooks, please consider checking this one out xDMy hopeful candidates for 2016 Choice Awards Food Cookbooks category In book title s alphabetical order

    14. This cookbook is authentic, diverse draws from all classes and a section on Jewish Roman recipes , and absolutely gorgeous I couldn t be happier with my choice for delving into Roman Italian cuisine The recipes remain the star of the show, even while incorporating historical and cultural information which is interesting and concise You can t escape the priciness of specialty cheeses, and some Roman food items I may choose to order online as they are not readily available in the American market F [...]

    15. I am not one to completely trash a book in a review So I will start with the positives before going into the negatives The positives There is a table of contentsThe book provides information about ingredients that the reader might not know about if they are not from RomeEach Recipe is laid out in a simple fashion ingredients, steps, servingsThe recipe title is translated in English The Negatives I would say about 90% of the recipes are all meatI had to keep flipping back and forth through out th [...]

    16. This is definitely a book made for foodies It has beautiful pictures of Rome and shares stories and insight about the Roman culture It s written by two Americans who go to Rome and fall in love with the city This is not your typical Italian cookbook with recipes you would find anywhere This is a book full of traditional and modern versions of the food you can find Romans eating in their wonderful city I do wish there were pictures of the food even if I do enjoy the pictures that were provided [...]

    17. This is a beautiful book, but for me it fails slightly in the useful cookbook department The cover and photographs inside are quite lovely I like the descriptions and history of Rome There is a lot of information here So I guess that s good in a way What it was missing was pictures of a lot of the recipes Some recipes had no picture, and some included a picture of scenery instead of the food Is day about half had a picture of the recipe Then there were a lot of ingredients that I wouldn t be abl [...]

    18. A beautiful, thoughtful, interesting cookbook that gives you a peek not just into the recipes of Rome, but the neighborhoods, flavors, and history of Rome It s thoughtfully written and has great anecdotes Maybe it s because I read this while prepping for a trip to Rome, but I couldn t stop reading it I loved the author s voices and stories When I was touring Rome, I got really excited when I recognized a restaurant Nonna Betta or dish and tried things I normally would have shied away from thanks [...]

    19. I adored everything about this book, from the photos to the contextual foundation I knew very little about the nuances of Roman cuisine and how it has evolved and the recipes which don t feel intimidating It s an inviting, inspiring book and will certainly instill wanderlust Rarely do I enjoy reading cookbooks, even those that bridge on culinary memoir, but I had a ball reading this and am eager to book a trip to Rome to discover it properly

    20. I am adding this one to my want to buy list.It really is a love letter to Rome Beautiful photos of both food and scenery, well researched history of Roman culture and cuisine, as well as anecdotes and insights of two expats living in Italy, and the recipes I m drooling over here Can t wait to try these.

    21. My family traveled to Rome in November of 2015 This cookbook made me very nostalgic for Rome The book is simply beautiful It is filled with recipes, stories, and pictures I was given this book by Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

    22. If you are like me and dream in Italian food, then this is the cookbook for you This book takes you on a tour of Rome by taking a look at some of their most popular restaurants MmmmmCan I go tomorrow

    23. An in depth look at the historical and cultural traditions of Rome and some of the associated food, with great photography Helpful adaptation of restaurant knowledge to recipes feasible in a home kitchen.

    24. Excellent The two recipes that I ve tried and enjoyed are verdure gratinate al forno baked veggies with breadcrumbs and sorbetto di pesche e vino peach and wine sorbet Now, I intend to try frittata di zucca pumpkin frittata and torta rustica savory pie with its lattice top crust.

    25. This cookbook had a lot of history in it I haven t cooked anything out of it yet, so I don t feel comfortable giving it a star rating.

    26. Having been to Italy, I enjoyed the photos, vignettes, and a few of the recipes It was like taking a walk down memory lane
