Rome has been a major food centre since the 8th century, with Ancient Roman cuisine being highly influenced by Ancient Greek culture. During the Renaissance, Rome became famous for its high-cuisine, with some of the best chefs cooking for the popes.
Since then, the city has become world renowned for its exceptional cuisine, with typical local dishes that include Spaghetti alla Carbonara, Carciofi alla giudia (artichokes fried in olive oil) and Gnocchi di semolino alla romana, to name a few.
Ingredients such as olive oil, pecorino romano, ricotta and strutto (pork lard) are used in traditional Roman cuisine, as is goat milk and cheese. Pasta is also an important element in the cuisine in Rome, with carbonara, cacio e pepe, amatriciana and gricia being the city’s most famous sauces. Your local guide will talk and walk you through this information.
These are often paired with white wine, as Rome is a white wine centre and we do include this in our Culinary Tours Rome.
