Delicious: TPC

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge from Dutch Goes the Photo is “delicious.” As a trained pastry chef, I really wanted to bake up something special and photograph it. But as a PhD student and adjunct professor who is starting term next week, I knew that was a bad plan.

So I decided to incorporate this challenge into my dinner run.

I don’t often go to Eataly–and I’ve never been to the downtown one–so I thought I’d treat myself on my last weekend of freedom and get dinner there.


If you’ve never been, I recommend it. Particularly the downtown location, which is newer and much larger than the Flatiron location. It’s basically an Italian-themed, high-end, gourmet market with a lot of prepared food and some mini restaurants.

Plus the Flatiron location doesn’t have a cannoli cart!

It’s pricey, don’t get me wrong, but it’s fun for a splurge. I mean look at all that beautiful food. Especially the desserts; even the panettone look delicious!

Hi, I'm Mercedes. I'm a PhD candidate in politics and a trained pastry chef. I'm also an amateur photographer, hobby quilter, and all-around nutty girl living in the Big Apple.

  1. Oh my god. This looks amazing Mercedes! And to think, I lived in NY for years and wasn’t aware of this delicious resource. 🙂 🙂 Congrats on going for your Ph.D. AND being a trained pastry chef. That is such a nice combination. Sending you blessings, Debbie
