Maria Carla greets us in the breathtaking countryside of Lazio, near the gates of Rome. Her beautiful villa may be far from the chaos of the city centre, but just looking around this area you can still see reminders of the colourful history of Rome; something that our Cesarina knows very well, since her great passion (aside from cooking, of course) is Roman History.
“My dinners give you a real ‘guided tour’ experience”, says Maria Carla, “I always try to accompany the meal with explanations and anecdotes about the eating habits of the Ancient Romans, especially the most well-known ones”. Dining at Maria Carla’s plunges you head first into the Eternal City’s culture, and you’ll appreciate both the flavours and the story behind them.
