Caviar Service.00_01_03_48.Still003

We serve these with our caviar service at La Sirena, along with chive blossoms, whipped mascarpone, hard-cooked egg yolks and pickled ramps.  If you’re not going all in, these bomboloni are also fantastic on their own and make great finger food for parties.

Peaches roll in late July, stealth in juicy promise. Italians eat them at harvest temperature, but I like mine cold from an ice bath. This mezcal cocktail combines the smoky Mexican spirit with cold peaches, mint, lime and tonic and will have you dreaming of the state fair…

Chicken with Sweet and Hot Peppers

Scarpariello is “shoemaker” in Italian. Here, “shoemaker’s” chicken may refer to Neapolitan shoemakers making delicious food in the little time they had at the end of the day, but I am pretty sure it is not a traditional dish in Italia. It is probably more a “Little Italy” dish, born of southern Italian roots somewhere…

The first strawberries arrive and I go crazy and put them in everything including my wine, my drinks and even my risotto… for an aperitivo I love mojitos and this one is ginger strawberry. -mb

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.
