Eataly, for those of you not familiar with it, is an amazing Italian supermarket, restaurant and shop in New York City. Oh my goodness they offer such an amazing variety of everything I love; all the best stinky cheeses, tons of hard, crusty Italian bread, meats and pastries. Since the food I love to cook and eat the most is Italian, I plan on
begging my parents to
take me there, making a trip there in the very near future. Recently,
the store was featured on one of my favorite Cooking Channel's shows:
Extra Virgin. If you haven't seen this show and you love Tuscan
food, you must tune in!
Extra Virgin is hosted by actress Deb Mazar (of Goodfella fame)and her Italian husband, Gabriele Corcos. They have two cute little girls that sometimes appear on the show with them as well. I love this program for a number of reasons. First, the hosts are down to earth, easy to follow and cook with lots of passion and humor. Second, they make amazing Tuscan food and are full of great ideas and new techniques to pass down. And the third, most important reason I love them so much is because they haven't made a dish yet that I didn't want to reach through the tv and gobble up!
Gabriele, is from Tuscany, so they often go back and film there. One of my favorite episodes is when they go back to Italy to renew their wedding vows, and cooked a feast for all of their guests. Man, would I have loved to be invited to that wedding! The food. My gosh, the food, I am still dreaming about it. It looked incredible.
What's your favorite cooking show? Any of you ever been to an Eataly?
