We visited "Eataly", the largest artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in the U.S.A.,owned by Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Lidia Bastianich.
I can't tell you how amazing the place was !!!
Lovely friend + great wine + fantastic food + much needed conversation = fabulous evening :)
We sampled some...
Spaghetti squash crostini, white bean and Rosemary crostini...
Baba al limoncello...
There's nothing wrong with having two desserts. (I had a pear gelato as well and I'm not a bit ashamed).
Bought some fresh pasta!! (Butternut squash with amaretto cookie stuffed ravioli .) WOW !!
Also bought some Italian beer that was infused with flowers ! Delicious!!
Thought about truffles ...
Walked all around the market to see all the great Italian products!! Jams, bread, chocolate, beer, pasta, produce, cheese, sweets, gadgetry and books.
So wonderful !
Of course, best shared with a great friend.
Buon Appetito!! ;)
