On The Hunt For Caccio

After a Pontifical Requiem in Rome on All Souls on a Friday, the reasonable thing to do eat is something pre-Columban.

Caccio e pepe!

A starter for us to share, first.

Then the famous pasta dish.

I had my favorite orata.

There is more to it than that, as it turns out.

Lots of conversation with old friends and about old friends.

What didn’t come across from my photos of the Mass was that the bishop celebrant preached in Latin. More importantly, a child I baptized helped as a young usher to take up the collection!

BTW one of the the people I dined with tonight happens to be, probably, the best tour guide in Rome. Among the languages he has, is English. He will accept small private parties. So if you want a tour in Rome… I’m just sayin’…

    All roads lead to Rome; when in Rome, do as the Romans do, and have pasta!

    I have only been there twice. But each time I dined in a dive (so to speak); the wine was fine and cheap, and the pasta unbelievably good!

    I’ll actually be in Rome for the first time this Christmas, with a friend who is being confirmed next week (I’m her sponsor). I think she and I would both like to try a tour if you have the information.

    I’ll be in Rome this December with some friends! Any info on the tour guide, Fr?

    I’ve been to Rome only once but it made a lasting impression on me. It’s a city like no other, truly exceptional in every way – history, art, culture, food, you name it – it’s bar none.

    Fr. Z might be referring to the tour guide, John Sonnen of Orbis Catholicus Secundus.
