La Dolce Vita in a cookery book

Rome is steeped in history and tradition, and this is reflected in the sheer vibrancy and variety of its food. In As the Romans Do, Instagram star and Roman native Eleonora Galasso will take you on a journey amongst the houses, the sanpietrini, the tiny side streets, the palazzos, the traditions, the community and the hidden gems of this never ending, always eternal city. From quick and earthy breakfasts and vivacious al fresco meals to brilliant off-the-cuff dinner parties, you will find a recipe to suit every occasion.

Biographical Notes

Eleonora Galasso's Instagram formula is a unique mix of food and lifestyle in motion, which has won the hearts of over 45k loyal followers. The rule? Food happiness. No one can resist it.

Eleonora zigzags between Rome and Paris, and has opened the door to secret locations in the historical centres of both cities, where she organizes cooking workshops and themed events. She runs clandestine pop-up restaurants in the least expected places, consults for major international brands and adores visiting local producers and reporting about it on her blog.

As a young girl, Eleonora was forbidden from entering her grandmother's kitchen, but she was allowed to taste the linguine to make sure they were 'al dente'. As is often the case in life, an obstacle turned a young girl's curiosity into a hobby and then a career. In her family home she found a dusty old handwritten recipe book and started playing with the ingredients to make her dinner parties creative and exciting. She went on to train at the Ateneo Italiano della Cucina in Rome and has a Masters in Gastronomy and Food Culture. Her career as a journalist has taken her around the world: whether London, Paris, New York, Sao Paulo or Istanbul.
