In Rome, you stumble upon both ancient and modern history on every street corner. The history of Rome, “The eternal city”, is a big part of the culture, and for a reason. Foodwise the city offers everything from thousand year old traditions to modern interpretations of the local cuisine. From all the varieties of pasta, pizza and bread, to recipes of the Quinto quarto (the fifth quarter), meaning offal and less expensive cuts like oxtail, lungs, tripes and brains cooked with both ancient and new Roman recipes. These old culinary traditions and food preferences are constantly debated by the Romans. Add to these stubborn traditions the new wave of younger chefs bringing in creative forms of cooking from both far and near, street food and plenty of wine bars and you'll get a sense of what eating in Rome is all about.
