Jewish food to eat in Rome
Jewish-Style Artichokes (Carciofi alla Giudia)
A real spring delicacy, the jewish-style artichokes is one of the most characteristic food to eat in Rome. The best restaurants in the Ghetto serve the dish from February to April, because this is a very seasonal dish. Deep-fried and tender, this artichoke is something special!
When Sephardic Jews arrived in rome in the 15th century, flleing persecution in Spain, they teach Roman-Jewish this delicious and simple recipe based on zucchini, some vinegar and olive oil, with a little of mint leaves. Tasteful!
Well, this is one of the most well-known pasta in Rome. You have to try it! The original recipe is made with pork’s cheek, tomatoes and pecorino cheese. The kosher version is a little bit different, of course it has no pork and cheese, but you’ll love the salted beef version, full of taste. Same goes for the Jewish Carbonara, different ingredients but lovely taste!
Jewish Baccalà (Fried Salted Cod)
A delicious, and of course fried dish, that melts in your mouth.
Jewish Pizza (Pizza Ebraica)
This is sweet, because it’s a dessert! The same pizza dough but filled and topped with candied fruits, nuts and almonds.
