grilled-pizza-header

The quintessential pizza, named for Italy’s Queen Margherita and sporting the colors of the Italian flag. Don’t worry if the pizzas aren’t perfectly round-in fact, they will look much more appealing if they are not. But be sure to let the dough set and firm up on the grill before flipping it over, or it may stick or tear. I once rushed this step on a live taping of Good Morning America, with disastrous results, so wait…just wait!

Though they freeze better than most vegetables, peas are at their best during spring, pulled straight from the pod.   At this time of year in my restaurants, shelling peas is almost a full-time job.   Favas have been around for longer than any other bean we know of today. And like many now-revered Italian…

It’s easy to forget about asparagus’ seasonality because it’s available year-round. But local asparagus has a freshness unlike that available in November. There is nothing better than seeing the first piles of these beautiful vegetables at the local market. Trees are in blossom. Spring is here.   Asparagus has been known as a sign of spring since the…

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…

MBF Swing Session Celebrity Golf Classic

Saturday, June 6th, 2015
9:30AM - 3:30PM

Hit the greens with Mario and friends, celebrities, and A-list chefs for the ultimate gastronomic golf event, Swing Session Celebrity Golf Classic. Eat, drink and swing your way through a memorable round of golf at the world-renowned Cascata. Start the day with a golf clinic led by event co-host Hank Haney. At 10:30 AM, a shotgun start will launch golfers onto the course. Before teeing off at each hole, players will sample snacks and drinks from some of the most respected chefs and restaurants in Las Vegas including DB Brasserie, B&B Ristorante, Delmonico’s Steakhouse, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, and B&B Burger & Beer as well as an oyster bar sponsored by Santa Monica Seafood Company. Golf carts carrying Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches and cocktails from mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim will roam the course to make sure no player goes hungry (or parched). At the end of the day, golfers will indulge in a gifting lounge at the Cascata clubhouse. From there, shuttles will bus golfers back to the Palazzo to rest up before an awards ceremony.
