Bringing Back Memories

I recently stopped by Chelsea Market's Buon Italia to pick up some of my favorite imported goods from Italy like burrata cheese, sardinian crackers, and homemade pasta. My goal was to recreate one of the incredible meals my husband and I had on our honeymoon.  Although the meal was delicious, it was a touch short of the real thing.  Let's just say, I hope our next trip to Italy involves a cooking class.

The menu:
Sardinian Crackle bread baked in the oven with olive oil, sea salt, and rosemary

Heirloom Tomato Salad with Burrata Cheese (drizzled with a thick balsamic glaze)

Garganelli pasta Amatriciana

Veal Cutlets with Lemon Parmesan Arugula

Gelato with Italian cookies

All washed down with a Sardinian wine


  1. just read your wonderful blog! And so great to stumble upon this first! Forget buying the pasta, sky! you can make your own homemade pasta (and bread). I make pasta & rosemary oil bread for my family every sunday! It is wonderful! And, I also make it whole-wheat (which I know you would like...)! Also, you must buy unfiltered EVOO; the taste is wonderful and can change the meal.

  2. Thanks for reading Jen! I'd love to feature you and your homemade pasta/bread. Please email me with whenever you can.
