A gorgeous hardcover cookbook, Tasting Rome had me within its first few pages. Filled with mouth-watering dishes, beautiful photographs, and write-ups about Rome both past and present, I fell in love with this book at first glance.(just the picture of a gelato stand was making my mouth water.)
A closer look at the recipes has me a little more mixed. I love Italian food, but I am an American, and some of the dishes are a little outside my comfort zone. Still, there are more than enough other recipes to make up for it. However, because several of the dishes are unfamiliar to me, I do wish that the book had a picture of every recipe so I knew a little more of what I was getting into.
Still, overall I think this book is a keeper, and it will probably end up being one of the more used cookbooks on my shelf.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
