Having lived in and around Bologna for three years of my life, there is probably no region in all of Italy as close to my heart as Emilia-Romagna. From the magnificent Byzantine frescoes in Ravenna to the two towers in the city of Bologna, and the riches of a magnificent small town like Modena, there…

“It costs as little as 40¢ for two life-saving pills that, when taken daily, can prevent an HIV+ mom from passing the virus to her unborn baby, still, 650 babies are needlessly born with the virus every day.

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…

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.
