The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Italian

Description: Roma, or Rome, is a province and capital town of Lazio, a region of central western Italy, around Rome. The city is rightly renowned for its lamb and kid, beef and offal. The Testaccio area is particularly good for offal (US: organ meats). The slaugherhouses were all in that neighbourhood and most of the four quarters were sold on, but the fifth quarter, the quinto quarto, stayed in Testaccio where delicious ways of serving it were devised. Also excellent in Rome, in season, are the wonderful broad beans (US: fava beans) which appear in risotti and many salads, artichokes and the well know pecorino Romana.
