    The traditional food of Rome and its hinterland is redolent of herbs, olive oil, lamb and pork. Simple yet refined, it is the frugal fare of ordinary people. This first English-language cookbook to cover the entire region includes 250 authentic, easy-to-follow recipes for dishes such as Spaghetti Aglio, Stewed Oxtail, Lobster Soup and Sweet Gnocchi, along with a wealth of anecdote and social history, leading the reader on an exhilarating journey from antiquity to the present.
