Book Club, Eating Rome by Elizabeth Minchilli - Thursday, November 19th

Elizabeth Minchilli has been eating her way through Rome since she was 12 years old. Eating Rome, based on her popular blog Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome, is her homage to the city that feeds her, literally and figuratively. Her story is a personal, quirky and deliciously entertaining look at some of the city's monuments to food culture. Join her as she takes you on a stroll through her favorite open air markets; stop by the best gelato shops; order plates full of carbonara and finish the day with a brilliant red Negroni. Beautifully illustrated with Minchilli's full-color photos and enriched with her favorite recipes for Roman classics like vignarola, carciofi alla romana and carbonara.

Our new meet-up date is Thursday, November 19th, 7PM, in the Via Umbria Cafe. RSVP to Elsa at
