Rome Nov 15th Onward - Seasonal Specials?
Last year, early Oct., the selection of fall mushrooms was unique & superb. What should I seek out of particular interest at restaurants not normally available other times of the year?
Yes, I do realize grapes and peppers are now flowing into town. But those Oct. mushrooms were molto fantastico! Served raw, sauteed, atop pasta, mixed in salads, wow! Different restaurants had different presentations. CHer suggestions appreciated for next week in Rome!
Mushrooms were scarce and rarely good this year, due to weather conditions. Artichokes from sardegna and puglia have started coming in, still no romans. Puntarelle have started (love them), broccoletti, kale, cicoria, swiss chard in all colors, radicchio, romanesco, caci/loti (persimmons) are in major force. Around rome, olive oil pressing season is now, lots of fresh olive oil at the farmers' markets. Some truffles.
