I had a “big” birthday this week and because I love to cook and eat, my girlfriends took me to Eataly. Their manifesto speaks to me… ” In love with food”, ” food unites us all”… so we ventured on to “Eat, Shop, & Learn”. We were fortunate enough to have an amazing guide take us through all the different departments and restaurants. It was a farmers market on steroids, all Italian. From Tomahawk Steaks dry aged beef, to hunks of delicious cheese, pastas, fresh baked bread, a fish counter to die for, and beautiful sweets accompanied by the perfect cup of cappuccino. I will be going back now that I have the lay of the land… maybe even to take a cooking class. If you love food, like to cook, and appreciate fresh wonderful food you should go. Enjoy!
