Maritozzo con panna and sorchetta romana: two Roman classics!
If you want to experience the ‘real’ Rome, you cannot leave without having tried two of the most delicious, soft and rich food that Rome has offer: ‘maritozzo con panna’ (a creamy brioche) and ‘sorchetta romana’ (impossible to translate!). Maritozzo is a delicious sandwich, sometimes flavored with orange peel or enriched with raisins, and normally cut in half, lengthwise, to be filled with fresh whipped cream.
The second treat you should definitely try while visiting Rome, is the ‘sorchetta romana’. A true classic of the Eternal City, this is a must for any locals especially at night after a bit of dancing!
Don’t ask the meaning of its name…it’s a bit of a vulgar term but in this case it is used with a lot of humor.
