Rome (and environs): Non basta una vita – Eating edition
My college roommate Joanne paid me a nice long visit this summer — her husband Paul was here for the first week — and we pretty much spent the whole time eating. Here are some of the highlights. (That’s Joanne making funny faces while consuming various icy desserts).
Carciofi alla Giudea from Ba’Ghetto in the Jewish ghetto.
Shrimp carpaccio and chocolate semifreddo at Trattoria del Pesce.
(Raw) Shrimp from Sicily with zucchini, stracciatella (thin strands of mozzarella soaked in heavy cream) and bottarga (dried, salted fish roe) and deconstructed carbonara at Le Coq.
Panzanella (Tuscan bread and tomato salad) with crabmeat and stracotto (Italian pot roast) at Renato e Luisa.
Wild strawberries at Nemi.
Here’s the view by the way.
Grattachecca (shaved Italian ice) on the Via Marmorata in Rome.
Porchetta (roast suckling pig) in Ariccia.
Gazpacho with burrata, plate of Tuscan starters and a big hairy steak the size of your head at Ristorante da Nilo in Cetona.
