The Babbo Cookbook

by

The Babbo Cookbook Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the growing Mario Batali restaurant empire, Babbo remains the jewel in the crown and one of the hottest reservations in town. Here, in a tastefully appointed town-house in New York City's West Village, a devoted following packs the house to delight in such creations as Duck Tongue Salad, Saffron Panna Cotta, and Pasta Dusted with Fennel Pollen.

In The Babbo Cookbook, Mario re-creates the Babbo experience. In addition to the abundant recipes, he offers special seasonal menus and sidebars that illuminate the small details that set Babbo apart, from the way they prime the wine glasses to the fresh, local ingredients that are the basis of the restaurant's unforgettable dishes.

Designed by the same team that created the look for all of Mario's restaurants, and alive with Mario's own warm and friendly spirit, The Babbo Cookbook is the next best thing to dining at Babbo — and no reservation is required.

Review:

"Funny. Bold. Beautiful. Full of life and full of flavor. From the Blood Orange Bellini to the Mint Love Letters (irreverent ravioli) and Barbecued Skirt Steak with Endive, this book is pure Mario. Great food, great snapshots (they exude the restaurant hustle-bustle), and Joe's great wine notes take you right to the heart of the Babbo experience." Rick Bayless

Review:

"Babbo is revelatory — the freshest ingredients , simply or elaborately prepared, combine into nothing short of a celebration. If food could rule the world, Mario Batali would be Emperor. In fact, he is. Or should be." Michael Stipe

Review:

"Every time I go to New York, I see Mario at the [Union Square] farmers' market. It is his attention to fresh, seasonal ingredients that makes these dishes so irresistible." Alice Waters

Review:

"Historically, when we adapt an ethnic cuisine to our own uses we start with the most ordinary and work our way up, frequently making a mess along the way. In our lifelong search for the genuine we need a guidebook to get close to the pinnacle and, in the case of Italian cuisine, it has been delivered in the shape of Mario Batali's Babbo Cookbook, which is a new standard of excellence. Babbo is my favorite American restaurant and this book allows me to bring its grace to my home kitchen." Jim Harrison

Synopsis:

Join Francine Segan on a virtual tour of Italy with more than 125 recipes for cookies, cakes, pastries, frozen confections, and more. Favorites such as Cannoli and Zuppa Inglese are featured along with unusual regional specialties such as Licorice Granita and Chocolate Eggplant. In addition to beloved classics and traditional holiday fare, readers will find contemporary sweets enjoyed by Italians todayand#8212;including a light and luscious and#8220;updatedand#8221; Tiramisand#249; that does not use raw eggs. Segan brings each recipe to life, introducing the countless cooks from whom she learned them: Italian grandmothers and young foodies, pastry chefs and bakery owners, food writers and internationally renowned sweets manufacturers. A chapter on after-dinner drinks rounds out this ultimate, comprehensive guide.

Praise for Dolci:

Their gift: knowing when an ingredient is at its peak and being unafraid to let its singular virtues shine.
