I really, really love pizza. Deeply. So you can imagine my joy when Lucky Peach asked me to document a pizza crawl of Rome for them, highlighting my favorite pizzas and styles. I was equally excited to collaborate Gabriele Stabile, a photographer whose work I have enjoyed for years. Gabri and I spent many hours traversing the city and ate over a dozen [...]

Recipe: Abbacchio alla Romana | Roman-style Suckling Lamb

2017-04-13T11:13:49+02:00April 13th, 2017|Categories: Food & Wine, Gastronomic Traditions, Meat, Recipes|

Abbacchio—a suckling lamb that is about a month old and weighs no more than 15 pounds— is a springtime fixture on Rome’s tables.

The highly anticipated Mercato Centrale food hall (above) opened on a sketchy stretch of Via Giolitti on the southern side of Rome's Stazione Termini yesterday. The location, detached from the station's tracks and main concourse, will likely be the biggest obstacle the market faces. Termini is a real nightmare and no sane person enjoys sticking [...]

Since opening in Rome's Trionfale district in November 2012, Panificio Bonci has been in my regular rotation of carb sources. I drop in for pizza by the slice, pizzette, and bread whenever I'm in the neighborhood. But Gabriele Bonci's eponymous bakery, which sells a range of sweet and savory items, isn't just a place to [...]

Les Vignerons Natural Wine Shop Moves to Trastevere

Trastevere's wine scene just got a whole lot more interesting. For years, it has been dominated by Bernabei (not to be confused with the awesome norcino), a retailer and distributor that stocks boring and/or industrial wines and creates banal wine lists for many restaurants in the neighborhood. Bernabei's borderline monopoly isn't going anywhere, but at [...]
