Let's go shopping in Italy...

Well, since I can't just hop on a plane and go there, the next best thing is checking out these amazing Italian Deli's here in Vancouver. I like to pretend I am in Florence or Siena in a family run market. Except instead of having to use my broken Italian everyone speaks English. That would be the upside.

I love la Grotta del Formaggio. They have everything from ameretti cookies to buffalo mozzarella (direct from the motherland). I am a sucker for the labels. Sure, it's just a can of beans. If I were to do a taste test they would probably match up to the Canadian brand. But the cute little flag and Italian writing makes my heart sing.
Although I have never experienced one, their sandwiches are renowned.
