I received a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Elizabeth Minchilli's book is not as much a cook book as it is a lifestyle book. There are some recipes, but recipes are not the primary focus of the book. Eating Rome: Lving the Good Life in the Etern...

This is part memoir/lifestyle blog, part cookbook, and part travel guide. The lifestyle part is somewhat charming but I could not make it through it in large chunks. I guess, there was such a preoccupation with the "correct" and uniquely Roman thing to do and the rules to follow at all t...

Elizabeth Minchilli’s Eating Rome does not disappoint. I found Minchilli’s advice for navigating the Roman food world extremely accurate and her infusion of personal exper...
