Umbria at Eataly

Umbria at Eataly

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.

Man making mozzarella at EatalyWalking 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!
