Pizzuto’s Market Sold to Two Paisans
Think of an Italian market, and what’s the first image that comes to mind? A bustling, aromatic shop with huge wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese on the counter and small wedges of pecorino Romano in baskets. Shelves stocked with jars of imported capers, olive oils and plump white beans. And above it all, ropes of sausage and prosciutto hams, dangling from the ceiling. Refrigerators offering an impressive selection of imported cured meats alongside salami, speck and bresaola, plus sausages and fresh mozzarella that are made in the store. Plain and stuffed fresh pastas and house-made sauces pack the shelves as well, next to trays of lasagna, eggplant Parmesan and individual cups of tiramisu. Imported pantry goods such as vinegars, cans of Italian coffee beans and wines do double duty as scene-setters and sellable goods.
