All roads lead to Rome

I journeyed back to the US with a bag full of treasures and as a departing meal at the airport, I went for one more antipasti plate.

Seriously, could you blame me??

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and look forward to my next trip to Italy to explore other parts of Rome and the country. The people are simply delightful and I hope I can bring the same sense of joy to my life.

Here are some random moments of Rome as well as a list of places that were recommended to me by my former boss, James Beard winning Chef Bob Kinkead of Kinkead’s and Ancora.
