Authentic Italian Ceramic Bowl

Italian Kitchen?

Hey, I'm moving out into my own apartment pretty soon, and I really want an Italian-themed kitchen. I want it to have an authentic feeling (ie. no little figures of Italian chefs everywhere lol). What are some things I can get for my kitchen that would give it that Italy feeling?


You can go either modern Italian or old-world country. For modern Italian, select things for your kitchen from Alessi. This is a high-end Italian design shop. Year after year, they produce beautiful, slickly designed housewares. Most are in steel, but a number are in plastic, really cute/humorous, and not as expensive. For old-world Italian, start with Italian pottery. You can try to get some real pottery from Italy, or look at what they make and look for less expensive imitations. Different areas in Italy are famous for their style of pottery. Here's a random website that seems to take its pottery seriously: http://www.thatsarte.com/ I have a library book called Italian Country. I'll list some of the things I see in kitchen photos: copper serving utensils hanging from an iron bar copper molds big mason jars filled with pasta, flour, and sugar knives displayed in a wooden wall-mounted shelf wooden dish drying rack pots of herbs (key if you are really cooking Italian food!) wicker baskets some fancy silver and pewter serving pieces bottles of wine copper pots and bowls thick glassware If you don't have much money, you could buy a cheap plain white china set, and add in a few ceramic pieces as you can afford them, like a pitcher or bowl. For curtains, use some nice plain linen or cotton, or heavy crotcheted ones. You can find good curtains to fit your apartment windows at Country Curtains (store or website). If there's room in your kitchen, find an old wooden table and chairs at a yard sale or flea market. Find an old cotton tablecloth and place it diagonally over the table (so the points of the tablecloth fall on each side of the table). That's a nice idea - you'll have fun putting it together.

Ceramics in warm colors and cast iron pieces- but still keep in mind the function- I hate it when people have beautiful dishes in their cupboards and don't use them. Italians use their stuff! You can start by finding a nice ceramic piece to hold your cooking utensils. A great place to add color and function. Best!

Paint it stone tan with some light "swipe" textures here and there. Have a black wire stand stained glass top dining table, and black wire framed chairs with basket weaved cloth tan seating. Have a seating area with a chair by the window with a small stained glass patterned area rug and a light for reading...a morning coffee/newspaper spot, or the place you rest and watch the small tv on the bar.... while cooking.

Real Italian Kitchens are simple, rustic, have the copper pots and pans hanging from the cieling, vases with lavender on the table, earthy colors, think brick, burnt orange, yellow on the walls, posters usually in Italian or French, Table cloths that are linnen and embroidered, (Sur La Table) has great ones as do kitchen stores. Knives are stored in a block, portugese designs on the dishes, cups, saucers, soup tureens.

About this book
The author of the beloved classic Italian Family Cooking teams up with his daughter for a book that is part recipe treasury, part family memoir--and totally irresistible!James Beard Award winner Ed Giobbi’s passion for fresh, seasonal fare, lovingly prepared, was nourished in a family to whom food was a sacred pleasure. Craig Claiborne, the late New York Times food critic, said, "Some of the most memorable meals of my life have been taken in Ed’s kitchen."Now, 30 years after Giobbi’s first cookbook, Italian Family Cooking, became an instant classic, he and his daughter, Eugenia Bone, have produced a wonderful companion volume on the art of preparing fabulous seasonal meals. Taking as inspiration the Italian countryside in Liguria where the Giobbi family has its roots, Italian Family Dining will show the reader how to combine dishes to put together unforgettable spring, summer, fall, and winter repasts.Scrambled Eggs with Scallops and Morels, Mesclun Salad, and Strawberry Flan make a delicious quick spring meal, while Grilled Duck Breast, Warm Beet and Potato Salad, and Sliced Pears with Cheese combine spectacularly for a fast fall dinner. Throughout the book Eugenia Bone shares warm family reminiscences--and the recipes for Italian-style dining are simple but elegant, created by one of America’s great home cooks, Ed Giobbi.
