Rome street food and photo exhibit

Well, I owe my followers a sincere apology: I haven't posted on this blog in over 8 months. But I'm not entirely to blame, it's all my iPhone's fault, and mainly the Instagram photoedit App. The easy share option on that devilish thing makes photo-blogging almost obsolete.

So in a moment of mobile photo lucidity I am breaking that trend, and promise to start posting images here again. Let me tell you about some great news in the meantime.

Sunday May 5 at 6 pm if you happen to be in Rome, do swing by one of my favorite hangouts, Circolo degli Artisti, for an evening of delicious street food, books, screenings, vintage VW Beetles, picnic spreads, a concert, and my "street" photos on exhibit at the Street Food in Circolo event.


The STREET FOOD IN CIRCOLO evening will be packed with activities, flavors and music. Here is a list of participating chefs and restaurants – each contributing a signature dish or street food specialty:

Stefano Callegari – The mastermind behind Tonda, Sforno, and 00100 pizza shrines – will be cooking Trapizzini, triangular pockets of pizza bianca bread, open on one side and stuffed with classic Roman fillings like stewed tripe, braised oxtail, meatballs, and tongue with salsa verde, a garlic & parsley sauce)

Gabriele Bonci – pizza guru at Pizzarium (one of Rome's top pizza destinations), and consultant for No.Au – will grace us with squares of his droolworthy Pizza al taglio

Giancarlo Casa – the pizza chef owner of La Gatta Mangiona – will be frying all manner of supplì and croquettes

Ernesto Fico of world-known Pizzeria Donna Regina in Napoli, will be contributing typical Neapolitan fried pizzelle and "frittatine" omelettes

The Fooders – illuminated gourmet food designers and events catering chefs – will be feeding us their signature "Polpette alla amatriciana" meatballs in amatriciana sauce, folded in tasty focaccia sandwiches
