MOLTO ITALIANO

327 SIMPLE ITALIAN RECIPES TO COOK AT HOME

Molto Italiano features over 350 pages of Mario’s all-time favorite simple recipes, drawn from his travels throughout Italy and cooking experiences here in America – on TV and at home – representing the best cooking of Italian dishes both here and in their place of birth. Easy to use, rich in local lore, and brimming with Mario’s wit and enthusiasm.

SIMPLE ITALIAN FOOD

RECIPES FROM MY TWO VILLAGES

Simple Italian Food evokes the bonds that Mario identified between two communities far apart in space, but close in spirit: Borgo Capanne in the mountains between Florence and Modena, and Greenwich Village in lower Manhattan. Easy-to follow recipes accompanied by highly personal text allow American readers to immerse themselves in an Italian mountain village without leaving the kitchen. This is one of the most acclaimed Italian cookbooks of all time.

THE BABBO COOKBOOK

Babbo has boldly and ingeniously redefined contemporary Italian cooking.  Wondrously new and unique dishes, exotic combinations of ingredients, adventurous from first course to last. A must for any serious home chef.

VINO ITALIANO

THE REGIONAL WINES OF ITALY

A demystifying tour through one of Italy’s most treasured and historic cultural triumphs… its wine. Region-by-region, grape-by-grape, David Lynch and Joseph Bastianich have compiled a most accessible encyclopedia on this complex subject, ably and deliciously supported by recipes from Mario and Lidia Bastianich.

RESTAURANT MAN

A hard-boiled coming of age story, at its heart Restaurant Man is also a portrait of the uncompromising and hard-working restaurant man who is deeply committed to providing a matchless dining experience that leaves the customer breathless.

DOLCE ITALIANO

Babbo’s Pastry Chef Gina DePalma has revolutionized the concept of Italian desserts. Her devotion to fresh ingredients, simple yet elegant style, flawless technique, and uniquely Italian sensibility make Dolce Italiano a necessity for anyone who loves cooking and eating Italian food—and for those home cooks who, like Gina, lie awake at night in bed dreaming of the perfect dessert.

MOLTO BATALI:

SIMPLE FAMILY MEALS FROM MY HOME TO YOURS

Divided into the twelve months of the calendar year, each chapter in Molto Batali offers a main course paired with three pastas, one soup, five vegetable dishes, and a dessert. Intended to serve 8-12, the recipes can easily be halved or quartered for any occasion. Better yet, the dishes are perfectly paired for combinations that create stellar meals for every season. With many options in each chapter, Molto Batali offers flexibility and an authentically Italian way of dining, with an emphasis on smaller portions, pasta as the first course, and several different servings of vegetables at every meal.

AMERICA–FARM TO TABLE:

SIMPLE, DELICIOUS RECIPES CELEBRATING LOCAL FARMERS

  
In this new book, Mario celebrates American farmers: their high quality products and their culture defined by hard work, integrity, and pride.  Batali asks his chef friends from Nashville to San Francisco to tell him who their favorite farmers were, and those farmers graciously shared their personal stories along with their top-of-the-line produce and products.

  
In Seattle, Chef Matt Dillon introduces readers to farmer Pierre Monnat, who produces fava beans and lamb.  Batali then features those ingredients in such mouthwatering recipes as Lamb Shank Sloppy Joesand Fava Bean Guacamole.  In Washington, DC, Chef Jose Andres from Jaleo introduces us to farmer Jim Crawford, who grows corn, broccoli, and strawberries.  Batali’s accompanying dishes include Chilled Sweet Corn Soup and Salmon with Strawberry Salsa.  Other stops along the way include: Tampa; Austin; Nashville; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Portland, Maine; Chicago, Cleveland; Suttons Bay, Michigan; and Vail, Colorado (see the attached for a complete list of the chefs and farmers featured in each city).  With more than a hundred superb recipes, this is the book every home cook will want to have on hand upon returning from the farmer’s market or grocers.
