Dust jacket notes read: "A city of culture, history, art and charm, Rome is also home to some of Italy's most delicious food. Food is a way of life in Rome--stroll through the open-air markets or past any neighborhood trattoria or cafe and you'll feel the Roman passion for good eating. Fresh greens and ripe fruit beckon from the colorful market stalls. At outdoor tables overlooking baroque fountains, Romans sip wine or savor sweet and-sour onions or a bite of bruschetta. When Romans gather at home for a special meal or party, it's a chance to enjoy the simple, elegant dishes that have been treasured for generations. Rome's lively, family-run trattorias are an extension of the home table, places where friends meet to indulge in the many tempting courses of a classic Roman meal. The Roman way of cooking and eating is as fresh and vital as Rome itself, and now, with Cooking the Roman Way, we can enjoy the flavors, preparations and spirit of this food in our own homes. Gutsy, flavorful, fun to eat and easy to make- that's how David Downie defines Roman food. And he illustrates it with such classic antipasti as Artichokes Braised with Garlic and Mint, simple pasta like Spaghetti alla Carbonara, and savory vegetable dishes such as Sweet Peppers Stuffed with Tuna and Black Olives. Each recipe is full of the flavors of Rome and of the Italian countryside. Sidebars evoking the city's sunny, good-natured character offer vignettes on subjects as diverse as Rome's coffee cult and Easter picnicking rites. I Beautiful color photographs capture the bounty of the Roman table and the fresh, lively spirit of this ancient, enduring place. With more than 100 recipes for every course from antipasti to dolci, Cooking the Roman Way is a, celebration of the Eternal City's rich culinary heritage and an eloquent portrait, in words and pictures, of one of the world's most captivating capitals."Edition: First edition
