Truffle fan? Great news, folks – because truffles are synonymous with trips to Italy. In fact, part of the grounds that loop around the main complex have been named Terra del Tartufo, AKA Truffle Land, which is a special area for truffles to be grown in. Plus, there will be daily truffle hunt demonstrations, where highly-trained pooches will sniff out both white and black truffles hidden in the earth – delicious and entertaining, right?
One of the main aims of Eataly World is to create a hands-on experience for its guests. So, you can look forward to glassed-off kitchens, where you’ll get to see the preparation of cheese and pasta for yourself. And if you’ve got some cash to spare, why not sign up to a behind-the- scenes tour? In the pasta room, for example, you’ll learn about the pasta-making process, and will get to see freshly-made penne, tagliatelle, and stuffed tortellini laid out on trays to dry. On top of that, you’ll have the chance to buy spaghetti that’s been dried for either 12, 24, or 36 hours – and because Italy is the home of spaghetti, after all, it would be rude not to try some authentic and local produce.
If you’re a cheese lover, Eataly World is basically your heaven on earth. Products in retro packaging will be sold at the Italian Cheese Store so you can take some home for your nearest and dearest, along with artisanal cheeses sourced from all over Italy.
What would a food theme park be without cooking lessons? At Eataly World, a number of pasta makers have set up shop in brand-new kitchens at the site to show you how to do it best. At the cooking demonstrations, you’ll learn how to make fresh pasta in the Bolognese style (think tortellini and tagliatelle, to name just a few), followed by a mouth-watering tasting session at the end. Drooling, yet?
Did you know Italy produces over 100 brands of gin, and more than 200 vermouths? We think that’s pretty impressive, to be honest. The cocktail you absolutely must try while you’re at Eataly World, though, is one (or two) of the 1,000 kinds of Negroni cocktails being poured at the stalls. If that’s not worth raising a glass to, we don’t know what is…
