Minchilli’s passion for food and Rome has produced a charming personal culinary itinerary and guidebook. Minchilli is a blogger; the creator of the Eat Rome, Eat Florence, and Eat Venice apps; and a prolific author of books on Italian architecture, design, and food. She takes readers to favorite food haunts for daily dining, shopping, and cooking, seasoned with childhood anecdotes about the city where she now raises her own family. Full of tips and cultural “rules” for consuming coffee or shopping at open-air markets and small alimentari, Minchilli’s 25 how-to essays go to the streets of Rome, where she teaches the proper way of eating pizza, identifying sandwich (panino) styles, selecting gelato, and ordering when dining out. Each essay is accompanied by recipes and includes a list of locales guiding readers to the best in Roman artichokes, pizza bianca, classic pasta dishes, and pastries. Minchilli is biased toward family-run specialty shops in certain neighborhoods, and she reflects on the changing culinary scene with the rise of the Roman brunch and the closing of many traditional spots.
