Rome Street Food Carts make up a part of Chef Guido's childhood memories, growing up in Rome. Between Piazza Navona, Trastevere and the Colosseum, street food was everywhere, suppli (arancini), deep-fried, crispy vegetables were quickly served in a cone of thick paper and often consumed on the go. Although more rare today, these delicacies are still available around Rome and Chef Guido is going to show you how to prepare fantastic Rome Street Food how he remembers it from his childhood in the Ethernal City!
There's something special about delicious snacks that you associate with your childhood, don't you think?

Sabina is an ancient land where civilisation started way before Rome and the local archaeological museum in Fara Sabina tells a story of walled cities, powerful kings and the development of fine art, pottery, jewellery and elaborate bronze manufacts from 2,600 years ago. Three of the seven kings of Rome, Tito Tazio, Numa Pompilio and Anco Marzio, were from here.

Today, Sabina is well known for its art and music festivals which are organised throughout the year. Toffia is famous for its "Festa del Centro Storico', an art, music and street theatre festival which lasts for 5 nights in mid-August and attracts more than 3,000 people every night. Toffia is also known for its very active theatre, run by 'Officina 33'. In Fara Sabina there is an international Jazz Festival in July and Casaprota hosts the interesting art and music 'Arterie festival'.
