    Mediterranean cuisine is the term used to describe the food and dishes that come from the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The cuisines of this region are quite diverse, which is somewhat unsurprising given that the diversity of peoples, cultures and religions in this vast region.

    On the other hand, there do tend to be some elements that many of the cuisines of the region share, which is also unsurprising given the fact than many of the countries share similar geographical features, flora, fauna, and of course, countries tend to influence their neighbors.

    Some common elements in Mediterranean cuisine include:
    • Olives are produced in several Mediterranean countries (including Greece, Italy, Spain, and Turkey, as well as other Mediterranean countries), and thus olive oil is widely used in the region's cooking.

    • Fish and seafood are widely eaten. However, many of the fish are imported from regions outside the Mediterranean.

    • Goat meat, lamb, and mutton tend to be important meats. This is because the terrain of many countries favors goat and sheep farming.

    • In the eastern Mediterranean, barbecue grilled meats, falafel (a fried patty made from chickpeas or fava beans), hummus (a dip made from mashed chickpeas and ground sesame seeds), and pita bread (flat unleavened bread), all tend to be favored.

    Product Description:
    A love letter from two Americans to their adopted city, Tasting Rome is a showcase of  modern dishes influenced by tradition, as well as the rich culture of their surroundings. 
     
    Even 150 years after unification, Italy is still a divided nation where individual regions are defined by their local cuisine. Each is a mirror of its city’s culture, history, and geography. But cucina romana is the country’s greatest standout.
     
    Tasting Rome provides a complete picture of a place that many love, but few know completely. In sharing Rome’s celebrated dishes, street food innovations, and forgotten recipes, journalist Katie Parla and photographer Kristina Gill capture its unique character and reveal its truly evolved food culture—a culmination of 2000 years of history. Their recipes acknowledge the foundations of Roman cuisine and demonstrate how it has transitioned to the variations found today. You’ll delight in the expected classics (cacio e pepe, pollo alla romana, fiore di zucca); the fascinating but largely undocumented Sephardic Jewish cuisine (hraimi con couscous, brodo di pesce, pizzarelle); the authentic and tasty offal (guanciale, simmenthal di coda, insalata di nervitti); and so much more.
     
    Studded with narrative features that capture the city’s history and gorgeous photography that highlights both the food and its hidden city, you’ll feel immediately inspired to start tasting Rome in your own kitchen.
