If you visit New York you must discover Eataly  Situated on Fifth Avenue near Madison Square Park this place is a feast for your eyes and your taste buds. The owners of this establishment are in love with food just like me. You can sit down and eat here, buy your groceries, pick up something special to eat later, and loads of other things to occupy food lovers. You can watch the professionals make pasta, purchase some and then choose the cheese and the sauce that you want to serve with it. You could even sign up for a cooking class. Oh how I wish I lived near a place like this!


We stopped and had lunch at one of the restaurants called “Le Vedura” Just next to the produce department this restaurant focuses on vegetables. The seasonal vegetables lightly fried in olive oil where amazing. Of course you can enjoy a glass of wine with you meal and don’t forget to take the stairs to the roof top where there is a seafood restaurant.



Have you ever seen so many mushroooms? Some of them I had never seen before! Wonderful fresh produce is on show and it is hard not to go home with too much.  Unfortunately I did not have a kitchen to cook in while staying in New York. Next time I will rent an apartment so I can buy all these wonderful ingredients and take them home to cook with. Fresh pasta with mushrooms would be so delicious.

Will write up the recipe for fresh mushrooms with pasta on the next post. Buon Appetito!
