Mercato Italiano @ Meijer

I was at a local Meijer store the other day and noticed a sign over their seasonal section in the back of the store - Mercato Italiano.  I had to check it out.  It appears that they were still stocking it, but had sections for various regions of Italy and various dry, bottled and canned goods appearing on the shelves (it's on the other side of the store from the grocery).  I looked in another Meijer today and the same was happening.

 

I found a short release on their website:

The Meijer Mercato Italiano experience will take place at all Meijer stores, featuring more than 400 authentic Italian products like artisan Italian pasta, San Marzano tomatoes, Italian wine and Italian extra virgin olive oil for a limited time beginning mid-month.

    Meijer is teaming up with the Italian Trade Agency to bring an authentic Italian cooking experience to select Meijer stores hosted later this month by The Food Network’s Iron Chef America Judge, Mario Rizzotti.

I didn't notice anything famously lustworthy, but I wonder of those with more knowledge might point to specific items we should snatch up.

 

I also envy *someone* in the Meijer Corporate office who got to design this project - regardless of how well the may have succeeded (or not).

I'm planning to pay a visit to Mario Rizzotti on the 25th. Maybe I'll invite him over for dinner after his demo.

During each of the six Italian cooking demonstrations, Rizzotti will cook an authentic Italian pasta dish and put his own twist on a gelato...The events, which will also feature a live Q&A session, will be held from 6-7 p.m.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."
