Five Quarters: Recipes and Notes from a Kitchen in Rome
by Rachel Roddy
Recommended by Kylee Newton, Five Quarters is the début book from Rachel Roddy, an English food writer who went to Rome for a brief holiday and never left. Weaving family-style recipes with involving anecdotes about Roman life as told through food, for Kylee, it’s simple: “it makes you want to cook”. Precise instructions paired with beautiful prose make for a cookbook as gratifying to follow as it is to read, perhaps with a slice of Rachel’s persimmon, ricotta & olive oil cake.
