What you’ll do

You’ll join one of our Rome hosts for a food crawl around historic Testaccio, an edgy neighbourhood that reads like a grid of old-school trattorias and hip street food joints (hopefully whilst wearing your stretchiest trousers). You’ll eat your way around the district where the Cucina Romana was born - since after all, the best way to discover a new culture is through its food. You’ll feast on the hyper-local and seasonal dishes which Rome is famous for, from street eats like supplì, a fried rice-ball with a tomato sauce and a heart of gooey melting mozzarella to panino con porchetta - an aromatic combo of crusty bread, fresh herbs and succulent juicy pork at the Testaccio Market. You’ll discover regional and seasonal produce while you’re here too, like globe artichokes and porcini mushrooms. It goes without saying you’ll also try some pizza romana (your host will make sure you don’t mix this staple up with its cousin, pizza napolitana) and the local speciality pizza bianca. Add into the mix a visit to a trattoria for the Roman speciality, carciofi alla giudia (Jewish style fried artichokes), followed by a dish of cacio e pepe, literally “cheese and pepper” (a minimalist Roman pasta dish consisting of locally produced Pecorino Romano and black pepper) and you’re a) eating like a Roman and b) possibly so full you can’t move. But there’s always room for dessert - did someone say gelato?
