Item Description

Hardcover, Autographed Copy

Come along for Mario Batali's delicious deep dive into American regional cooking with over 250 recipes - from Boston Cream Pie to San Diego Fish Tacos.

More than three years in the making, with Batali searching for truly original dishes and beloved classics from all corners of the States, this definitive cookbook features the best food America has to offer...from the BBQ style of Texas, Kansas City, Memphis, and the Carolinas; to the seafood soups and stews of New England; to the spicy gumbos of the Gulf Coast; and the rich berry pies of the Pacific Northwest.

All the recipes are simple and easy to follow... While Batali shares time-honored recipes, he also suggests additional ingredients or preparations for many of these traditional dishes to take the flavor up a level.

Mario Batali counts twenty-six restaurants, ten cookbooks, numerous television shows, and four Eataly marketplaces among his ever-expanding empire of deliciousness.

Culinary details, as well as Batali's essays on his two-year journey across the U.S. (which include further recommendations), set this volume apart from its peers... Publishers Weekly

This colorfully illustrated collection celebrates iconic American cooking with generally easily reproduced dishes that will delight people for a family dinner or for a special event... Batali makes every dish look like great fun, and it's impossible not to share his delight people. - Mark Knoblauch, Booklist
