Italian food is “twice blessed because it is the product of two arts, the art of cooking and the art of eating,” Marcella Hazan, author of the “The Classic Italian Cookbook,” is known to say. On a recent trip to Rome and Florence, we worked hard at the art of eating.
With a request of forgiveness to the fine restaurants I don’t identify by name (and with photo credits to Maxwell Tucker and Meghan Stratton), I present Italy in a week of food pictures.
What about the pizza, you ask? We all enjoyed plenty — from classic Magherita pizza to a Napoli with Anchovies. We simply were too busy feeding our pizza pie holes to take pictures. You could say the same of gelato. We treated ourselves most nights, but ended up with only one photo of gelato, enjoyed by Meghan on the Spanish Steps.
