Mario Batali's delicious deep dive into American Regional cooking with 250 recipesfrom San Diego Fish Tacos to Boston Cream Pie.
Over two years in the making, with Batali searching for truly delicious dishes from all corners of the US, this definitive cookbook features the best America has to offer. With over 250 simple recipes celebrating the treasures of the state fairs and the dishes of the local rotary clubs and ethnic groups. Batali has interpreted these regional gems with the same excitement and passion that he has approached traditional Italian food.
Covering the Northeast/New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the Gulf Coast, the Great Lakes, the Heartland, the Southwest, and the Pacific Coast, this book will share everything from the BBQ styles of Texas, the Smokeys and the Carolinas, to the seafood soups from yankee Boston to the spicy gumbos of the Gulf Coast and the berry pies of the Pacific Northwest.
All the dishes are very simple and do-ablefrom Philly Cheesesteaks to Marionberry cobbler. And while Batali uses recipes passed down through the generations, he also shares hints on what he would add to the recipe to take the flavor up a notch.
This is THE American cookbook you will want to own.

Mario had me at Marionberry Cobbler. I just ordered my copy and will sit on my hands until I get it. I love anything simple and Mario has put his own spin on tried and true recipes with the same passion that he puts into Italian foods. In the meantime, I am cooking up a storm with Chef Jai Scovers' cookbook, "Simple, Healthy and Delicious." I made the Roast Chicken that I heard about in another review, it is so delicious. I did pair it with the Forbidden Rice and my family didn't leave any leftovers for the first time in years. If you can buy both, buy them. If not, borrow "Simple, Healthy and Delicious" from the library but try it.
