Guanciale and Gelato

Join Nicola Marzovilla for A Taste of Rome, I Trulli’s culinary journey to the Eternal City

The markets and cafés of Rome's Campo dei Fiori are a popular destination for tourists and locals.

The markets and cafés of Rome's Campo dei Fiori have long been a popular destination for tourists and locals.

Lazio, and its stunning capital Rome, is renowned the world over as a political, cultural, artistic and religious center. For centuries, legions of visitors have descended on the Eternal City. Perhaps as a consequence, precious little has been preserved of the culinary heritage of ancient Rome or papal courts. Yet today, Rome’s standing as a cosmopolitan mecca has created a melting pot of people and flavors, and it is here where one finds some of the best food in Italy. Taking its inspiration from the farthest reaches of the globe and from Lazio’s local provinces, Roman dining is a truly magical social occasion.

Restaurants in Piazza della Rotonda can be touristy and over-priced, but the looming Pantheon makes for a dramatic lunchtime backdrop.

In honor of the region and its majestic capital, I Trulli presents an evening devoted to the delicious specialties of Italy’s capital and the unique wines of Lazio. Chef Patti Jackson has prepared a special menu featuring typically Roman dishes, each of which will be paired with wines by some of our favorite Lazio producers.

    forever? Is not this eternal life itself as much of a riddle

  4. This reminds me of the familiar quote of Henry Adams: “You say that love is nonsense….I tell you it is no such thing. For weeks and months it is a steady physical pain, an ache about the heart, never leaving one, by night or by day; a long strain on one’s nerves like toothache orrheumatism, not intolerable at any one instant, but exhausting by its steady drain on the strength.” – excellent job, keep it up!
