In Italia: Forty-seven recipes from Mario Batali

Five days after returning from four months in Italy, I received Mario Batali’s Molto Italiano (2005) as a Christmas gift. This book is very dear to me. Little more needs to be said.

The foods presented below were created between December 2009 and June 2012. You can see the name of each dish by scrolling over the photo. To see a larger image, simply click on the photo. Depending on the ingredients I had on hand, I altered a fair number of Batali’s recipes. These are listed as “adapted” below. Enjoy.

Sadly, I can find no photo for six of the recipes from this book: basic tomato sauce, St. John’s Eve pasta, basic gnocchi, the devil’s chicken, roman-style artichokes, and pesto (by itself). You will have to trust me on these.

I have completed 47 of this book’s 327 recipes. Percentage complete: 14.37%


  1. Love your blog..look forward to reading more..
