"The trick to cooking is that there is no trick." --Mario Batali The only mandatory Italian cookbook for the home cook, Mario Batali's Molto Italiano is rich in local lore, with Batali's humorous and enthusiastic voice, familiar to those who have come to know him on his popular Food Network programs, larded through about 220 recipes of simple, healthy, seasonal Italian cooking for the American audience. Easy to use and simple to read, some of these recipes will be those "as seen" on TV in the eight years of "Molto Mario" programs on the Food Network, including those from "Mediterranean Mario," "Mario Eats Italy," and the all-new "Ciao America with Mario Batali." Batali's distinctive voice will provide a historical and cultural perspective with a humorous bent to demystify even the more elaborate dishes as well as showing ways to shorten or simplify everything from the purchasing of good ingredients to pre-production and countdown schedules of holiday meals. Informative head notes will include bits about the provenance of the recipes and the odd historical fact. Mario Batali's Molto Italiano will feature ten soups, thirty antipasti (many vegetarian or vegetable based), forty pasta dishes representing many of the twenty-one regions of Italy, twenty fish and shellfish dishes, twenty chicken dishes, twenty pork or lamb dishes and twenty side dishes, each of which can be served as a light meal. Add twenty desserts and a foundation of basic formation recipes and this book will be the only Italian cooking book needed in the home cook's library.… (more)

I use this book all the time! Highly recommended. ( )

There are some excellent recipes in here which are classic Batali – few ingredients which mesh to form surprising flavors. There is a level of difficulty to these which may not be for everyone but anyone who is a fan of his restaurants will want this book. ( )

This is my go-to book for cooking Italian. The food actually tastes like the food I had in Italy. The recipes are not bogged down with hard-to-find ingredients. The instructions are easily followed. The recipes for Bolognese ragu and saltimboca in particular are the best I have found. ( )
