My Roman-Jewish Cookbook
In Italy and around the world, Jewish cuisine, though still maintaining its strong traditions, varies according to the local social contest. In Rome, more than anywhere else, the continuous millennial interaction between the Jewish Community (the most ancient in the world) and the Roman inhabitants has strengthened and preserved its traditions. This is not the usual cook book, it is the history of a very particular gastronomic culture. Family memories, traditional recipes, notes and anecdotes describe this old Jewish Community – the largest in Italy – and strongly representative in the Roman and Italian society. More than 120 easy-to-prepare recipes, from appetizers to pasta, from main dishes to desserts, fully illustrated by delightful drawings and numerous pictures of Rome and the Roman-Jewish areas.
