Food Wine Rome is a focused guidebook and traveler’s companion to the gastronomic history, culture and delights of contemporary Rome. Neighborhood listings breakdown into three categories: 1) ristoranti, trattorie, osterie; 2) gourmet food: salami makers, bakeries, cheesemongers, open markets; 3) wine: wine shops, wine bars, wine makers. Scores of boxed sidebars add entertaining nuggets of lore, history, culture, customs, quotes, and anecdotes bring alive Rome's astonishing culinary richness.
Also included is a useful glossary of Roman and Italian food and wine terminology to make shopping, marketing, and eating easy, fun and rewarding. The book is beautifully designed by Louise Fili and illustrated with dozens of atmospheric photographs by noted food and travel photographer Alison Harris (www.alisonharris.com). An overall keyed map of central Rome makes it easy for readers to find addresses.
