Cucina Povera & Roman Cuisine in Monteverde


calamariCucina povera is based on readily available, seasonal and inexpensive ingredients. Although it was never completely dismissed, it is now very much in vogue. Our tour starts at the outdoor food market at Piazza San Giovanni di Dio in Monteverde, an off the beat residential area near Trastevere, with more than 100 food stalls to explore. We will weave our way through the neighborhood visiting food shops, butchers, and a coffee roaster before enjoying a lunch at a traditional restaurant. Our 3 course meal varies depending on the season and which plates appeal to you. Dishes include gnocchi fritti (fried gnocchi), rigatoni alla pajata (pasta with a tomato & lamb intestine sauce) and baccala alla Romana (salt cod, olives & tomato sauce). We will also enjoy Roman pasta classics such as amatricianacarbonara and cacio e pepe. All wine pairings will be from small organic and natural Italian wine makers.
