From Mario Batali, superstar chef and author of Molto Italiano, comes the ultimate handbook on Italian grilling, which will become an instant must-have cookbook for home grillers.
Easy to use and filled with simple recipes, Mario Batali’s new grilling handbook takes the mystery out of making tasty, simple, smoky Italian food. In addition to the eighty recipes and the sixty full-color photographs, Italian Grill includes helpful information on different heat-source options, grilling techniques, and essential equipment. As in Molto Italiano, Batali’s distinctive voice provides a historical and cultural perspective as well.
Italian Grill features appetizers; pizza and flatbreads; fish and shellfish; poultry; meat; and vegetables. The delicious recipes include Fennel with Sambuca and Grapefruit; Guinea Hen Breasts with Rosemary and Pesto; Baby Octopus with Gigante Beans and Olive-Orange Vinaigrette; and Rosticciana, Italian-Style Ribs.
This is why Mario Batali is an iron chef! His dedication to authentic Italian cuisine and honoring the ingredients is why his food is so excellent. Buying a chef’s cookbook made me think I would be spending hours in the kitchen, but most recipes only have a handful of ingredients. Done right, that’s all you need. My favorites so far are Grilled Polenta with Robiola and Scallions, Basic Tomato Sauce, and Eggplant Rollatini. If you’re looking to broaden your recipe box and want to eat like you’re in a beautiful Italian restaurant (in Italy!) then follow Mr. Batali. He will lead the way!
