My Kitchen in Rome: Recipes and Notes on Italian Cooking, Hardcover/Rachel Roddy
When Rachel Roddy visited Rome in 2005 she never intended to stay. But then she happened upon the neighborhood of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centers around the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, and fell instantly in love. Thus began an Italian adventure that has turned into a brand new life. "My Kitchen in Rome" charts a year in Rachel's small Italian kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating, and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city. Weaving together stories, memories, and recipes for thick bean soups, fresh pastas, braised vegetables, and slow-cooked meats, "My Kitchen in Rome" captures the spirit of Rachel's beloved blog, "Rachel Eats," and offers readers the chance to cook "cucina romana" without leaving the comfort of home.
