Rome If You Want To

Authentic Italian ingredients: ridiculously good. If only they were as easy to buy as, say, Silvio Berlusconi is.

Well actually they are, because New York’s super popular Italian market Eataly has just started selling online.

Founded in Turin then launched in New York with the help of master chef/partner Mario Batali, Eataly peddles only the finest regional Italian delicacies, from homespun pastas, to sauces, meats, and olive oils.

True to the store’s manifesto “Eat. Shop. Learn”, each item on Eataly’s site comes with its own charming backstory.

Take the Delfino Anchovy Colatura: “After WWII, Pasquale Battista opened a small kitchen to preserve anchovies in Cetara on the Almafi Coast in Campania …”

You can also sort every food type by region and type, e.g., olive oil from Liguria or Lombardia.

Almost all the items are available online, but may we suggest you start with the Piemontese vs. Prime Black Angus Package ($180) for a feast, or the gift packages, for the holidays.

All guaranteed to keep you almost as satisfied as Silvio. Almost.
