Parla Food is a food and travel blog written by Katie Parla, an art historian, certified sommelier and food historian based in Rome. Katie grew up in the restaurant business and has had an intense passion for food since her childhood in New Jersey. She moved to Rome in 2003 where she works as a freelance food and travel writer for several leading print and online publications. She is also the author of several guidebooks about Rome, Naples, and Turkey. This app adapts posts from the Parla Food blog and incorporates Katie's years of dining research in the city she has called home for nearly a decade.
