Italian Shopping Treasures

What is my favorite kind of store in Italy? Furla? NO, that would come in third! First is a KITCHEN shop!, second is a supermarket, and then I can browse at accessories!

I did buy some clothing and bags in Bologna, but my real treasures are small:
rosemary honey, fig marmellata, caramelized figs with balsamico, and sabba (cooked wine syrup)

A precious bottle of Balsamico di Modena aged in cherry wood:

Cookie cutters for cookies that sit on the edge of a glass or cup!

COOKBOOKS!: One from our cooking class with Rafaella and Francesca, 2 that were gifts from Andrea (I have been cooking AMAZING recipes already!) There is an Emilia-Romagna cookbook, and DVDs from two sisters on "Everything with a Rolling pin: pastas, crusts, etc., and a gift of an Umbrian cookbook from Judith!

Oh Palma, where did you get the DVD of the Simili sisters? I would love to purchase one when we are in Bologna this January.

My husband and I were very fortunate to have taken a number of classes with them over several years before they retired from their cooking school. They were so knowledgeable, gracious and vivacious!

Susie,

The DVD was a gift from my teacher, but it has a Fetrinelli Bookstore sticker! : )
Look in the Eataly bookstore cooking section!

Thanks Palma!

Now if we could just see photos of your Furla purchases! ;)

I love all of your Italian treasures! Those are the things I love to bring home - food items and wine, of course.

Thank you so much for sharing your adventures with all of us. I can only imagine how much laughter there was while you and Jerry and Sandi were together with all of the other ST folks.
