This is neither a recipe book nor a restaurant guide, though it will tell you how to cook an artichoke and where to find the sexiest tiramisu. It is, rather, a portrait of a city where history and art are inseparable from cuisine. The result is a Fellini-esque intellectual banquet as rich and complex and as beguiling and bewildering as the Eternal City itself.
