Holiday Food

Author: Mario Batali
Pages: 144
Format: Hardcover

Tis the season of the green and... orange? That would be Mario on the cover in his trademark orange clogs with green sox (at least on the cover of my book) for the holidays. There is a great photo of a teen/20 something Mario on page 12! Holidays means Xmas and New Years Eve and Day. A little book packed with really good recipes. Not a fluff piece, this one is worth it.

Shrimp in "crazy water" - the addition of fennel gives this almost bouillabaisse some nuance
Baked crepes stuffed with cheese - ricotta, mozzarella, cacio and sopressata
Pickled Vegetable salad
Spaghetti with a hole, sheep's cheese and eggs
Cookie box
Mythic Pasta Dome
Linguine with Walnut Sauce

Verdict: It's cheap. Buy it!!
