Event Information

Roman food is a fundamental part of Italian cuisine, one often overlooked. Although simple and humble, classic Roman food is full of flavor, seasonal and bursting with powerful ingredients. Rome is known for it’s casual, affordable dining in trattorias or osterias, as well right off the streets or in local mercados. However, Roman street food is much more than pizza. In this seminar, Chef Greg Baker will lead you through the essential pillars of Roman street food, with a modern spin, taking you out of the theatre and onto the streets of Rome.


Tasting Plates:
