It’s all about the crust…the small raised rim around the pizza called the cornichon in Italy. When it’s crispy, slightly charred and oh so thin, it’s authentic Neapolitan pizza! And that’s exactly what I found at Eataly — Lidia Bastianich’s cool Italian emporium in New York City.
Three of New York’s best Italian culinary stars are the genius behind the city’s new giant Italian marketplace called Eataly. Lidia Bastianich, Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali, who all have fabulous resturants in NYC, are now showcasing the best of Italy in this entertaining emporium modeled after their partner Oscar Farinetti’s emporium in Turin, Italy.
