ROMAN GASTRONOMIC TRADITIONS

The Roman gastronomic tradition is deeply rooted in the local culture and there is much historical evidences that can be traced down through the centuries confirming the long-standing tradition of gastronomy in the region and which help in the recovery of lost products and recipes from the past.

Roman cuisine has always been characterized by its variety of tasty dishes creatively prepared from many ingredients. Many dishes are characterized by their popular origin and on the other hand by the integration of traditions from other cultures present in Rome and its surroundings over the centuries.

* The so-colled “fifth quarter” cuisine;
* The traditional Jewish style cuisine from the Roman Ghetto;
* The traditional cuisine of the Castelli Romani (Roman Castles) and Roman neighborhoods
