I am having a Roman Holiday over on BEAUTYCALYPSE this week — loads of fun. On her lifestyle quest this week, I share some insights about Roman food and wine culture shifts. If you know Nath from BEAUTYCALYPSE, you will know why it is a delight to bash out some fun topics together.
Nath has evolved as the female hero of the rogue class — that is she’s bee there, done that, that (and yes) even that. She’s in our world, a lady of the evolving consciousness who is roaming the toxic wasteland of our industrialised food and beauty world looking for what is clean and what is real in health. A little geeky, a little cultural and a lot of REAL. You’ll know why I wanted to share my latest Roman tips with her.
‘My memory of Roman food and wine was somehow always sketchy and this recent trip to suckle on the wolverine’s gastronomic teats showed me why. Finally, the wine was matching the regional pride of the food. And not only did I see it on the wine lists in restaurants, but spotted entire shops dedicated to the few km radius of what grows within a stone’s throw of Caesar’s rubble.
The choice seemed broader, within a more limited geography. And I loved it.
I think, I finally tasted Rome.
