Rome’s typical cuisine, the so-called “Cucina Romana”, counts some legendary pasta in its repertoire at the base of which we find the Pecorino Romano cheese and three out of four the guanciale (pork cheek), which are both produced abundantly in the Roman countryside:
- Carbonara, the most famous with eggs, Pecorino Romano, guanciale, and pepper
- Gricia which, compared to Carbonara, does not contain egg
- Cacio e Pepe which contains neither eggs nor guanciale
- Amatriciana made by guanciale, peeled tomatoes, and guanciale
They are hearty dishes and each of them has garnered a cult status – they are bold, delicious, and characterful in a way, reflecting the very nature of Roman culture. Learn how to master them too!
