Eataly NYC & Chicago Celebrate Campania Food and Wine

Fri, 09/19/2014 - 02:30

This month, Eataly New York is celebrating Campania, followed next month by Eataly Chicago.

High-quality food and wine products from 37 producers from this Southern Italian region will be featured at the fancy food shop chain.

“This diverse coastal region is well-known for San Marzano tomatoes grown in the nutrient-rich volcanic soil, fresh fish and seafood from the Gulf of Napoli, unique cheeses, a long tradition of artisanal dried pasta production and of course, la Pizza Napoletana”, writes the Eataly website.

Special Campania-focused classes will be offered at La Scuola di Eataly: customers will learn how the history of the region influenced the production of traditional dishes, and how the region’s terroir has led to the production of specific grape varieties. Special menu items will be featured at all Eataly restaurants within the two locations.

Campania products will also be used in Eataly recipes to be prepared by some Michelin-starred chefs, including Rosanna Marziale and Vitantonio Lombardi. Their dishes will include a ‘pizza in black' featuring three different types of fresh truffles, caviar and pecorino ricotta.
