How To Eataly

How To Eataly

Autumn feels like the start of something new. You might be back in the office after working from the beach (our regrets...) or your kids could be back in the classroom after 18 months at home (congratulations!) Maybe you stopped ordering takeout and decided to cook for yourself once in a while (we salute you.)

In this transitional season, we’re sharing tips on eating well, living well, and getting the most out of every moment. Wherever you find yourself this fall, we want you to help you inject a little of the Italian approach into your day.

FIND YOUR MARKETPLACE

TIP 1: EAT WITH THE SEASONS

Italians cook vegetables better than anyone because we know how to celebrate the seasons (we literally have whole festivals dedicated to radicchio in the city of Treviso!) . When you buy what grows locally, you'll always enjoy eating your vegetables.

Discover a few of our favorite ways to enjoy autumnal ingredients with these fall recipes, our tips and tricks to caring for mushrooms, and guide to using a whole pumpkin.

TIP 2: BUY THE BEST

When we say “buy the best”, what we mean is this: support anyone producing food in a way that is good, clean, and fair. Whether you’re selecting a new olive oil (helpful guide here) or composing the perfect antipasti platter, the best food starts with the highest-quality products.

TIP 3: HONOR YOUR INGREDIENTS

Once you’ve sourced the best, treat your ingredients with respect by learning a few simple tricks. First, it’s advisable to stock your larder well and know some classic pantry recipes for those times when you can’t make it to Eataly’s market. It’s also essential to pair pasta shapes with the appropriate sauces. You should learn the basics of wine tasting, so you’re always ready to pair the perfect vino. And, at the very least, you must learn how to make the perfect negroni–when all else fails in the kitchen, you can always serve your guests a cocktail.

TIP 4: SLOW DOWN AND APPRECIATE SMALL MOMENTS

An important part of the Italian lifestyle is slowing down and enjoying the small pleasures that make up everyday life. Who cares if you’re always running 5 minutes late? It’s good for the soul.

Breakfast–Start your day al bar, where you can read the paper and have a lighthearted chat with your neighbor. But, please– be serious when it comes to your coffee order

Lunch–Even if you can’t manage a leisurely two-hour meal, there are still ways to bring an Italian approach to your sad desk lunch

Cocktails–After work, aperitivo! Meet your friends for spritzes, snacks, and gossip to finish the day. 

Dinner–If you’re feeling ambitious, try your hand at slow-simmered ragù (recipe here) for dinner. But no judgment if you fake it and buy the pre-made Bolognese sauce from our Made in Eataly line instead...

TIP 5: THE MORE YOU KNOW THE MORE YOU ENJOY

We challenge you to learn more about people, places, and cultures behind your food, but it should never feel like dreary homework. On the contrary! We’re endlessly fascinated by these stories and knowing them increases the pleasure we take in eating. To start your journey, check out our library of stories on Italian producers, regions, dishes, culture, and history.

Now, visit your local Eataly to start putting all your knowledge to use! Ti aspettiamo!
