12.20.11Food architecture …a Roman surprise

by Eleni : Culinary Adventures Rome : No comments yet - add one!

Rome is beautiful in a dramatic flow of ancient, modern, and unexpected spaces. I turned a corner in saint Angelo neighborhood where I am staying at Antonia’s little apartment that embodies my opening sentence… Look for my post devoted to it! I discovered this little paticcere…bakery coffee shop . It is inviting with its warmth, beautiful cakes and Xmas displays. You make your own espresso or tea and finally choose your sweet from the bakery part. I chose a meringue topped chocolate tart that was crisp and Iand in the middle the secret liquid chocolate slowly coats your taste buds as they toy with the fascination of the other surprise…soft subtleness of a little chunk of pear. This is a combination that instantly makes you understand why simonetta bontempi is a self ascribed”food architect”. Families, couples, and friends meet to share a sweet…and like me leave with a smile and a lingering deliciousness still permeating their senses…and when you leave they will know I sent you by the broadness of your smile…
