  • If I'm Not Feeling So Well Tomorrow....
    on Apr 21, 2011
    Here's the culprit! As you all probably know already, I love to try out dishes particular to an area, or even to a specific day. Today is giovedi santo, or Holy Thursday, and today the thing to eat here in Naples is zuppa di cozze. I happened to find...
  • Honey!
    on Apr 20, 2011
    Loving all things local, I had to pick up this honey while I was back in Revello. One of many different varieties sold at the very tiny supermarket in town, I used it in iced tea and slathered it on some gorgonzola cheese too! Yum! ...
  • The Original....
    on Apr 20, 2011 in Eataly Torino
    If you've been following my blog, you've certainly seen all of the posts about Eataly and the restaurants. The New York location is just great, but I also wanted to see what the original Eataly store in Torino is like. So, while I was in the north, I...
  • CopyCat!
    on Apr 19, 2011
    While back up in Revello recently, I happened to find delicious, sweet local asparagus in the town's vegetable shop. So, I was a big-time copy cat and made a great asparagus risotto! This looks pretty familiar, doesn't it? :)...
  • Let It Be...
    on Apr 18, 2011 in Dolci Restaurants
    Italian food is generally not about manipulation or modernity, though the East Village restaurant Perbacco certainly tries to incorporate both of these elements into their food. To be clear, the food was not bad by any stretch of the imagination. How...
  • Il Pesce at Eataly
    on Apr 13, 2011 in Eataly Restaurants
    The best thing about Eataly is most likely the fact that you don't have to wait until you get home to try out the goods. The store's motto is "We sell what we cook and we cook what we sell," so the very same products offered for sale are what are use...
  • Boccioni at the MoMA
    on Apr 11, 2011 in Museums
    Realizing that I've gone food-centric for the past few posts, here's a bit of art for you all! The Museum of Modern Art is packed with masterpieces and one of them happens to be, quite possibly, my favorite statue. Umberto Boccioni's 'Unique For...
  • Eating Napoli-Style at Eataly!
    on Apr 8, 2011 in Restaurants
    Eataly is home to various eateries, one being one of my default pizzerias in Naples, RossoPomodoro. While this is a chain restaurant, RossoPomodoro turns out very good pizzas, as well as pastas, meat and the rest. (This location only does pizzas, tho...
  • The Wonderful World of Eataly's Desserts....
    on Apr 7, 2011 in Dolci
    "Pochi ma buoni" is a saying that could definitely be applied to Eataly's pasticceria. It translates literally to "Few, but good," quality over quantity. While there aren't that many choices, what is offered is just...out of this world. I had to...
  • One Reason I Couldn't Live in NYC!
    on Apr 5, 2011
    I absolutely love piadine, a bread typical of the Romagna region of Italy. Think of a Mexican tortilla, just a little bit thicker. When heated up and filled with whatever your heart's desire ( prosciutto and cheese, Nutella, anything....), they are t...
  • Welcome to Eataly!
    on Apr 5, 2011
    If you haven't visited the Italian food emporium Eataly in New York City, GO. NOW. Please!Opened in 2010, this food heaven has gathered a lot of publicity. (One of the co-owners is, as I'm sure most people know, Mr. Mario Batali.) There are restauran...

  • Get Me Back to Good Grissini!!
    on Mar 19, 2011
    I've been missing something I never thought I would: grissini. These hard, crunchy, dry breadsticks had never caught my attention before because they were, well, hard, dry, flavorless and a useless intake of calories. In restaurants, prepackaged gris...
  • Heaven!
    on Mar 17, 2011 in Restaurants
    While in Rome, I made it a point to eat lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in the world, Roscioli. This was the very first restaurant I ate at in Italy. My parents and I were brought there by our new-found friend Alex and promptly seated in the...

    Lynn D.!!! Today, my chocolate giveaway has come to an end, and I have our winner! Lynn D wrote a great story about a misleading pizza up in Torino. Sometimes you just never know exactly what you will get!  I'll ship out the Gay-Odin c...
