Eataly is as much about eating food, as it is about food literacy. The masterminds behind Eataly believe in the importance of educating people about where their food comes from. A shopping trip to Eataly is far different from your typical grocery store visit.
Walking around Eataly Manhattan the other day, I encountered a young man making Eataly’s famous in-house mozzarella by hand. At the pasta station, a lady was sorting through sought-after white truffles while her colleague was making fresh ravioli pasta. Every where you turn, you see another expert preparing a delicacy. The experts are more than eager to impart their knowledge, a trait that is much welcomed by foodies and newcomers alike.
Every month, a different area of Italy is celebrated through a specialized selection and presentation of regional food, wine and culture. Throughout each month, Eataly offers a series of classes and presentations, educating guests about the history of the terroir, local gastronomy, wine pairings and more. The month of November welcomes the central region of Italy known as Umbria. Typical Umbrian cuisine is based on seasonal, local ingredients. I came across a variety of Umbrian truffles, olive oils and sausages.
Head over to Eataly to explore “Sensational Umbria” and pick up some goods to inspire your next meal!

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.
