Mario Batali counts 24 restaurants, nine cookbooks, nurmerous television shows and the 50,000-square-foot Eataly marketplace among his ever-expanding empire of deliciousness.

Mario appears 3 times a week on ABC's "The Chew," a daytime talk show that celebrates and explores life through food.

OMG! What can I say? It's Mario Batali! What a wonderful cookbook. And to call it a cookbook, is to denigrate the whole thing. The whole concept, recipes, information, & the most exquisite color pics, AND the stories that accompany each chapter are lovely. This is a book I will use for years AND will use for gifts for gourmet friends! Can't say enough about the whole concept.

Ok, so I'm a bit of a cookbook fanatic, cooking show fanatic, well, anything cooking fanatic. That includes eating too. As for the cooking and eating fanatic, Mario knows what I mean. His book celebrates not only the preparation of food, but its growing and production from local suppliers. Not exactly a pure locavore book, it does a nice job in showing how going the extra effort in finding local suppliers can result in a better cooking and culinary experience. It celebrates the local movement, and translates that into phenomenal food. A noble cause with delicious results.

Batali's humor shines through as well, which takes the book from good to great. And only Batali can rock the crocs like that. Cookbook lovers will enjoy this one.

I'm happy to spend all day in the kitchen making good meal and don't mind a recipe that has 3 or 4 sub-recipes. I don't need full page glossy photos of the dish, and I frequently shy away from any cookbooks that seem to replace good cooking knowledge with a pretty picture. I have grown weary of the celebrity chef cookbooks. Many of them are either dumbed-down, or are meant more as a coffetable book than something you would actually cook from. As a result, I was not expecting anything even bordering good when I got this book as a gift.

That being said, I have been very pleasantly surprised with this compilation. The recipes start from scratch and they include information about pickling okra, canning tomatoes, making your own pasta (orecchiette, our favorite shape), making homemade bacon, and making a delicious sounding "sweet and hot tomato jam". In additon, many of the desserts sound wonderful.

But, to me the best part is that there is an underlying simplicity (without being dumbed-down) in the recipes that is both refreshing and beautiful. I would recommend this book to anyone and I can't wait to cook from it some more. I hope we see more cookbook like this in the future.

Excellent recipes of fresh vegetabley & meaty dishes with Mario B's special touch of flavors and expertise. Beautifully produced substantial book of photos & prose. Good for gift-giving or for your classic collection of cookbooks.

This is an American-Italian fusion book. Lots of recipes with roots vegetable, kale, and tomato. I've made a few dishes from here and they've all been well received. As always, Mario's recipes are heavy - lots of oil, butter, and salt. So for me, I use his books for lazy Sundays when I feel like cooking or random holidays. Not everyday meals.

Mario's interviews and recipes are sheer delight. The TV program "Chew" further illustrates his passion and expertise that shines throughout the pages of this book. Joining the farm to fork movement gives all of us a look at how important it is.

Having received this as a Christmas gift, I devoured it in less than a day. I love to cook and Mario Batali was one of the first chefs I followed when I first started learning many years ago. I find the book brilliant and inspiring. I would love to see more recipes utilizing vegetables that often come up in CSA shares because some of them are more difficult than others, such as kohlrabi, which seems to have potential but eludes me somehow. I really hope that this book will be followed by more like it.

It is such a joy to read the text in Mario's cookbooks. While he has clear, understandable directions, Mario also includes background stories to the recipes. This cookbook has the added feature of descriptions of farms throughout the United States. I have already made several dishes from the book which were incredibly tasty.
