If you’re planning a night in with some homemade Italian food, you’re going to want to visit an Italian market for the most authentic gourmet ingredients and sides. And although Los Angeles isn’t known for having a large Italian population like those found in New York or Philadelphia, the City of Angels has some great purveyors of Italian flavors. However, you’re going to have a hard time keeping your appetite when visiting these markets, hey also have quick-serve counters and are quite popular for their fresh breads and delicious sandwiches.

Filled with hard-to-find Italian imports, A-1 Imported Groceries is chock-full of genuine Italian products and ingredients. Their meat counter is rather popular for cold cuts, but the shop’s large selection of cheeses and balsamic vinegars will make you want to rush home and get cooking right away.

Larchmont Village Wine Spirits & Cheese

Larchmont Village Wine Spirits & Cheese is fairly small as a grocery store, but is often a busy lunch spot, and their selection of wines is incredible. As you might also expect from the name of the shop, their cheeses are likewise superb, but so is everything else they offer. Additional choices include imported gourmet spreads, crackers and chocolate.

Filled with imported and domestic goods that hail from not only Italy but also Greece, France, Spain and more, Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery is where you’re going to want to shop if you want to prepare an impressive European-themed spread. Their gourmet olives are unbeatable in the greater LA area. No matter what you’re shopping for, make sure to grab a container or two to see what the fuss is about. This location also carries gift baskets and novelties, making it a great place to stop before heading to a hosted gathering.

These are “cucina povera” style recipes , which essentially means “peasant food” (literally “poor cooking” or “poor kitchen”).

Since I shared a load of English and Scottish recipes when I was in those respective countries, I thought it would be nice to do the same with Italian recipes, given that I’m currently in Italy right now. I came to speak on a round table at the Turin Epicurean annual event featuring everything from food to fashion. More to come on that soon!

Cucina Povera dishes are mostly always made using super simple recipes, containing a minimal of ingredients. Usually, the products and seasonal and locally grown. As you would probably guess, those ingredients must be the best quality. There’s nothing to hide the lack of flavor otherwise.

Cucina povera recipes are the antitheses of American “Italian” chain restaurant’s dishes. If you enjoy this type of menu, that’s totally fine, just know that there is essentially nothing on it that is truly Italian.

Traditional Italian food is not smothered in sauces, tons of cheese and/or “lots of herbs and spices”. Those are American concoctions. Authentic Italian dishes are mostly light, include lots of vegetables, very little cheese (even on pizza) and are very healthy/nutritious.
