There’s Italian food, and there’s Italian food. One of the best things you can do in Rome is eat like a real Roman – from buying fresh ingredients (not just a trip to the supermarket), knowing what’s in season and where and how to buy it, to cooking and of course, eating in an Italian kitchen.
That’s why we were really excited to meet Maureen Fant. Not only can you follow Maureen, a Roman local for over 35 years, to the best markets and shops for all the best ingredients from artichokes to pecorino cheese, she leads you on a fantastic journey from grocery bags to the delicious finale.
Maureen’s love of Rome began with her studies in Roman classical archeology and flourished into writing, lectures, and living the life of a Roman. With a love of Italian food, Maureen’s archaeological beginnings morphed together with an emphasis on food, making her a wonderful source of information on Roman food and Rome itself.
You won’t just be eating in any Italian kitchen; Maureen is a notable food writer, especially of Roman cuisine, with fantastic knowledge and experience, and a passion to share the story of food.
Starting with a casual walk around Rome’s dynamic markets, Maureen will offer tidbits on local produce and offerings and help you discover all you wanted to know about Roman food.
Maureen’s love of Roman food and cooking offers a chance to really tantalize your tastebuds and learn what Roman food is all about.
