Lidia Bastianich of PBS' Italy in America and Andrew Zimmern of the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods are two of the celebrity television food stars who recently have made Salumeria Italiana part of their shows. Both loved the store, marveled at delicious tastes of cheese, such as Moliterno al Tartufo, and meats, such as Hot Capocollo, and shopped for pastas, colatura (anchovy essence), and other hard to find Italian products. Above owner Gaetano Martignetti meets Andrew. (Gaetano's aunt Tetta also had a cameo role, her TV debut at age 98!!!).
The staff was proud to show off the great products and services of the store -- and we love watching it on TV. Catch the shows in reruns!!!
