Table Talk with Katie Parla Co-Author of Tasting Rome

The Chowhound Team | Jun 16, 201611:05 AM     44

We're delighted to host Katie Parla—Chowhound member since 2008—on our ninth episode of Table Talk.

Katie is a Rome-based food and beverage educator and journalist. Originally from New Jersey, she has an art history degree from Yale, a master’s degree in Italian Gastronomic Culture from the Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”, a sommelier certificate from the Federazione Italiana Sommelier Albergatori Ristoratori, and an archeological speleology certification from the city of Rome.

Katie’s mission is to highlight great food and beverages, praise the people dedicated to feeding us well, and to get readers talking about what they are eating and drinking. She focuses special attention on Rome, where she lives, threats to local food culture, and critical reviews of restaurants and trends.

Tasting Rome: Fresh Flavors and Forgotten Recipes from an Ancient City is her latest co-authored cookbook.

Katie is looking forward to answering any of your questions. And if there's a trip to the eternal city in your future, Katie would be more than happy to help you maximize your experience.

As a thank you for your participation; we'll give a signed copy of Tasting Rome to the first two members who send their questions. We’ll be taking your inquiries from now, through June 21st, and we'll share Katie's answers on June 24th.
