What's This Place In Rome

  • 4

In the Williams-Sonoma cookbook, "ROME" , there are a few pictures that do not identify the location of the photo. For those that have the book and my know the place , what is the location ? THANKS

Page 12 & 67 Antipasti table set up
Page 55 Cafe top photo
Page - 90 Bakery
Page - 109 Cheese photo, possibly Gusto ?

  1. Would it be possible for you take pictures of those pages and post them?

    1. Sorry--I'm the author of the book and I don't even know what they are, exc to agree the last one could be 'Gusto (which I hate).

        When I first read the book over a year ago I was frustrated then that most of the photos are not identified, very frustrating, don't do that again !
        However apology accepted. The quality & subject matter of the photos & writing induce me to be there. I realy enjoy the book. Several of the recipes have become
        holiday favorites, as well as weekly courses. Did you write the other in the series, Florence, Spain, Paris ?

        I was afraid the last was Gusto. I have been there 4 or 5 times but I have never eaten there ( bathroom very convenient). It looked to hip or modern, sterile or something that never quite interested me. A while back Gusto had good reviews but there seem to be a few now that are not as flattering.

        Thanks all so far for the response.

          I'm glad you like the book. I had absolutely nothing to do with the choice of photos or the attributions. In fact, the only part of the book that contains a lot of mistakes (e.g., misspellings) is the photo acknowledgements. Whatever the places are in the mystery pix, they are not discussed in the text. I don't recognize them because I've never been to them.
