Ishan Gurdal, owner of Formaggio Kitchen, has an interesting story. After playing for Turkey’s volleyball team in the 1986 Olympics, he moved to the United States, where he coached at Harvard. However, he kept his passion for food alive by working at Formaggio Kitchen. In 1992, he eventually took over the shop. Today, it’s one of the country's top gourmet food retailers. You can choose from a wide selection of ingredients, like orange blossom honey, pasta, and cheese from around the world.
Family-owned and operated, Cardullo's proudly carries local products, as well as those from around the globe.
