<i>I Heart Rome</i> By Maria Pasquale

I Heart Rome By Maria Pasquale [©Smith Street Books ]


Rome is an open air museum; a modern-day marvel of a city that has seen centuries of emperors, popes, movements, triumphs and tragedies. Rome begs to be uncovered at every turn.

Through quirky local stories, mouth-watering recipes and glorious pictures, I Heart Rome takes you on an inspiring journey through the Rome that tourists rarely get to see.

Discover the sights and flavours that create the real heart of Italy with Maria Pasquale. Born in Melbourne, Australia, to Italian parents, Maria always knew Rome was her destiny and on a whim, moved to the city in 2011.

She is the creator of the popular food, travel and lifestyle blog Heart-Rome which has readers in over 100 countries and has been featured in Vogue and the BBC. She is also a regular contributor to The Telegraph, CNN and USA TODAY.

I Heart Rome showcases the fascinating and unique cuisine that is intrinsically tied to Rome’s history. And given the passionate nature of Romans as a people, it’s no wonder that dining is taken so seriously. From carbonara recipes to artichoke frying techniques, just about everything food related is up for – and causes much – debate in Rome.

Explore the food from the streets, historic trattorie and home kitchens of this incredible city. Along the way, meet the local cheesemongers, wine experts, bakers, chefs and more, who make Rome one of the great food capitals of the world.

With beautiful food and location photography, classic recipes and stories from the heart of the Eternal City, you, too, will heart Rome after delving into this book.
