After eighteen years of raising hungry boys in my kitchen, I seldom have leftovers when pasta water and cold butter are paired as the base of a sauce. In an act of kitchen artistry, every plate is licked clean and I barely have to put any elbow grease into the dirty dish aftermath. My pennette…

Created in Parma, Italy in 1935, the tomato revolution known as Pomì became a staple in authentic Italian homes across the region. Almost half a century later, the passata, or strained tomatoes, were successfully introduced to the United States. Since ripe, juicy tomatoes and zucchini are an even better pairing than extra virgin olive…

10% Happier with Dan Harris

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

Mario joins Dan Harris on his podcast by ABC News to talk meditation and living a happier life. Dan Harris is a fidgety, skeptical ABC newsman who had a panic attack live on Good Morning America, which led him to something he always thought was ridiculous: meditation. He wrote the bestselling book, "10% Happier," started an app -- "10% Happier: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics" -- and now, in this podcast, Dan talks with smart people about whether there's anything beyond 10%. Basically, here's what this podcast is obsessed with: Can you be an ambitious person and still strive for enlightenment (whatever that means)?

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.
