Il Natale di Roma

Oh, how we wish we were in Rome today for the 2,764th birthday celebration. Tanti auguri, Roma. Read the mythological birth story here; the celebration schedule, here. If you have children, or are a teacher, visit BBC Primary History - Ancient Rome for Kids. It's a terrific & fun resource.

If you'd like to make a traditional Roman recipe, here's
a slideshow & recipes. Easy-peasy but buy the best ingredients you can.
