Mario Batali's Italian Grill

Now that the summer is in full bloom, can I recommend this cookbook? I absolutely adore it for its delicious, simple, healthy recipes. As usual, Mario focuses on freshness and pizzaz (generally achieved by vinegar and hot pepper.) Mario includes ample vegetable grilling dishes, as well as fish, poultry, and meat. There's even grilled pizza!

Every dish I have made from this book has been a delight. (Note: I have only made veggies!)

  • Grilled radicchio with pears and balsamic
  • Grilled vegetable salad, capri-style
  • Marinated zucchini with homemade ricotta, mint, and bottarga
  • Eggplant rollantini with goat cheese and pesto
  • Grilled polenta with robiola and scallions
  • Grilled artichokes with mint and chilies
  • Corn as Italians would eat it

The pictures are stunning. I think if you are looking for a summer cookbook, this is it!
