‘Nawlins meets Italia

My youngest son, Leo, and I made our way down to the glorious city of New Orleans about this time last year. I do recognize we live in New York City, where you can virtually get anything you’d ever crave in the world. But there’s something about that slow, southern drawl and unbeatable hospitality that’s…

Mario Batali x Action Bronson

The dynamic duo has been spotted together consistently since filming MUNCHIES’ “Fuck, That’s Delicious” at Eataly NYC in mid-March. Rumor has it the Emmy nominated daytime…

Spring for Fresh Ingredients!

Even as spring approaches, sixteen percent of all dinners made in America tonight will be from the frozen food aisle of the supermarket.

Acorn Squash, Two Ways

The only thing better than one acorn squash recipe this time of year is two acorn squash recipes. Right now I’m making risotto colla zucca along with a stuffed acorn squash for my family. These are my all-time favorite ways to incorporate this winter vegetable into a quick dinner before the vernal equinox hits and…

When in doubt, roast!

If you’re listening close enough, you’re always in position to learn something.   For instance, while Mario and I were on the book tour for “America: Farm to Table,” I wasn’t planning on picking up a new recipe. But I was listening at our events with fans, and one just happened.   It may not…

mmmm… meatless monday!

This time of year, when parsnip season is in full swing, I’m constantly asked for Meatless Monday recipes incorporating this vegetable. My parsnip frittata with chives and Pecorino exudes everything that a meatless meal should be. There’s protein packed in the eggs, nutrients from the parsnips and, most importantly, a bold punch of flavor from…

It’s as simple as FEB!

  This month my family and I traveled to one of our favorite island escapes, the sweet, little paradise known as St. John. The water sparkles and the sand warms your toes while the cocktails warm your stomach. Better yet is the fresh catch of the day. Tuna, grouper and lobster are just a few…
