Rome for Food Lovers (Food Lovers Guides) (Paperback)
Discover the coolest places to eat in Rome from trattorias that have been in the same family for decades to restaurants, pizzerias, bars, cafes, gelatorias and delis. Author Peter Loewe also details the ongoing pizza wars in Rome, why Italians are not fatter and what might be hiding in a true Roman belly. Peter has also traveled far out into Rome's periphery, to find the most characteristic places in which the traditions of Roman food and family recipes live on. Organised into chapters for different types of eateries and food stores, this guide includes many great photos and interviews with local chefs. Given the many tourist traps that have multiplied in central Rome, a guide to the city's restaurants is more important than ever.
Swedish-born Peter Loewe is a journalist and correspondent for Dagens Nyheter and has lived in Rome for over 30 years. Food and wine are two of Peter's special interests and he is a regular contributor to Swedish publications such as Gourmet and Allt om Vin.
