The cuisine of the Roman tradition, as we know it today, has a very strong popular matrix. In this sense, to allow a more precise identification, it is also called Romanesque.
A cuisine made of poor, rural and “recycled” recipes that have been able to conquer the most refined palates and those geographically and culturally more distant, by virtue of a unique and unparalleled genuineness. In the face of solid identity roots, it should however be remembered that Rome was and remains a crossroads of peoples, for its millenary history, for its political and economic value in the international arena. And not least, for its religious relevance, deriving from being the world center of Catholicism.
From Etruscan to Greek and Arab contamination, Rome has welcomed and enriched itself over the centuries with other cultures, irreversibly intertwining with some of them, as happened with the Jewish one.
