The scent of freshly-ground espresso and just-baked pastries entices you through the doors of Eataly NYC. Once inside, you are greeted with a bustling market scene. Stalls line the pathway as you make your way through the European-style food hall. Navigating through the bakers and butchers, you discover a world of food.
With 25 stores internationally, Eataly is a renowned global food institution. Founded by Oscar Farinetti, Eataly has a mission to “make high quality Italian foods available to everyone, at fair prices and in an environment where people can shop, taste and learn.” The Manhattan location was a collaboration between Farinetti and famous chefs Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich, as well as Lidia’s son, Joe Bastianich, a successful restauranteur who has opened many locations with both Batali and his mother, Lidia.

The other afternoon, I was lucky enough to get up close and personal with one of my favorite local chefs, Luke Venner. I got a chance to hang out behind the scenes, whip up some bomb butter and chat all things Churncraft.
A few weeks ago, a jury of 39 design experts from around the world met in Germany to judge more than 5’500 product innovations from 54 countries. After careful evaluation, the jury paid tribute to Churncraft’s design with the coveted Red Dot distinction. The Churncraft butter churn will be exhibited at the Red Dot Design Museum in Essen, Germany, along with the other winners.
