Our 2011 last post is a “calendar” from our current year food memories and pictures. It aims also at providing a quick set of recommendations to be experienced in the course of 2012. In each month a culinary speciality is highlighted, including some of the best places where you can taste it, in our opinion of course. It represents our emotional journey since most of the mentioned food can be eaten during the whole year, or at least for the entire season.
Currently Rome culinary scene is changing rapidly so keep reading our posts and our tweets (@tavoleromane) for updates during the next year!
Note: links are mainly to our Italian blog posts, feel free to ask with a comment any additional information you may need.
Best wishes for a Happy and Delicious 2012!
