01 La Brezza Thumb

With winter behind us, spring drinking is lighter and less brown usually, and I love a Sea Breeze.  We Italianize it with grappa and I use my biz partners’ brand because it’s the real deal.

I was in Haiti with my pal José Andrés and he kept talking the whole trip down about rum sours… he was entranced and enchanted and as usual it turns out he was pitch perfect and right on the money.

tomato soup header

Pappa al pomodoro is a rustic dish with flavors of home cooking and end of summer comfort food. While this traditional Tuscan dish is typically eaten hot or at room temperature, I prefer it slightly chilled when tomatoes are at their peak in early September. My chilled tomato and bread soup will make you look as…

I love to play with sweet and savory, and this garden-inspired cocktail does just that!  Oozing with summery goodness, these “tomato-ritas” are the perfect drink for a late summer afternoon on the porch…or wherever you are.  Bonus: you can make gazpacho or panzanella with the leftover tomatoes.  Do it!!!

Out on October 4th, 2016!

The classic Maine-style blueberry pie may come out a little on the soupy side. That’s how it’s meant to be; ask anyone from Maine. Served with a scoop of ice cream, it doubles as a sauce! Wild Maine blueberries are smaller and a little more tannic and definitely worth the search.   This recipe and…

Mario's back on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about his latest cookbook: Mario Batali BIG American Cookbook!

MARIO BATALI BIG AMERICAN COOKBOOK: 250 Favorite Recipes from Across America

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Officially out on 10/4, this is the definitive regional American cookbook by Mario!

 

In BIG AMERICAN COOKBOOK, Mario has searched far and wide for truly delicious recipes from all corners of the United States and interpreted them with the same excitement and passion that he has famously brought to traditional and regional Italian and Spanish cooking.  Over 250 recipes of the best dishes that America has to offer celebrate the treasures of state fairs, shared dishes from church socials, and prized specialties from every ethnic group in the melting pot.

 

Covering all of the country’s regions – Northeast/New England, Mid-Atlantic, Deep South, Gulf Coast, Great Lakes, the Heartland, Southwest, and Pacific Coast – this book shares everything from our geo-specific BBQ styles (of Texas, Kansas City, Memphis, and the Carolinas) to the variations of chowder along the Northeastern seaboard; from the spicy gumbos of the Gulf Coast to the berry pies of the Pacific Northwest.  Plus, while Mario gleans from recipes passed down through the generations, he also shares his personal additions to the recipes that give tradition a super-delicious boost.  This is the American cookbook you will want to own.
