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

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Coming October 4th, this is the definitive regional American cookbook by acclaimed chef Mario Batali!


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.
