Prosciutto Week

Prosciutto Week

We are declaring Prosciutto Week at Eataly NYC Downtown!

From March 20 to 26, Eataly is celebrating the authentic Tuscan prosciutto of Piacenti with prosciutto dishes, market offers (free mozzarella, anyone?), and even free classes.

Located in the medieval hilltop town of San Gimignano, Piacenti's salumificio cures prosciutto following ancient Tuscan traditions that can be traced back to the House of Medici. The pork is hand-rubbed not just with salt but with spices, such as wild juniper berries and the finest black pepper. Decidedly different than its northern cousins, the resulting Prosciutto Toscano DOP boasts intense flavor with an almost spicy finish.

Hungry yet? Join us during Prosciutto Week to eat, shop, and learn about Tuscan prosciutto all week long!

Begin your dining experience with a typical Tuscan aperitivo!

Taste prosciutto paired with other artisanal Italian salumi and formaggi and a glass of wine at Il Vino. Located in the heart of Eataly, the bar serves antipasti platters with Prosciutto Toscano every day.



Bring the flavors of Toscana into your kitchen with our special market offers all week long!

In Italy, prosciutto is traditionally served with juicy fruit and creamy mozzarella. Share this classic pairing with a free melon with the purchase of two trays of Piacenti's Prosciutto Toscano DOP or Prosciutto Arrosto and a free five-ounce mozzarella with three trays.
