spaghetti / bavette/ olio/ vino/ parmigiano/… – Bella Italia.
Whenever going to a another country I love to go for a stroll in local supermarkets.
But to be honest whenever one buys something on vacation does it really have the same taste arriving home. Do we actually use it? Once I bought lentils in India to cook Dal (an indian lentil dish which can be served as main or supplement). I stored the lentils for about three years in the kitchen shelf (dry and hermetic packaged). When finally cooking them it happened that they stayed stone-hard for ever. Just to mention one example.
But shopping from Italian supermarkets turns out to be more successful for me. My favorite olive oil, a huge piece of Parmesan cheese, some bottles of this one red wine and Bavette No.13 (a flat spaghetti brand) always find the way home with me. And yes I use it regularly and it tastes as good as on vacation.
Of course due to globalization we can buy nearly everything from everywhere at home however the atmosphere cannot be compensated.
