What’s Cooking…Mario Batali
With his bright orange Crocs and matching hair, chef Mario Batali is a beacon of light among the world’s culinary pioneers. His vibrant personality—seen on TV shows that span Moltissimo on Vice, NBC’s The Chew and his Food Network series—is rivaled by his brilliance in the kitchen, where he brings an uber-fresh perspective to authentic Italian cooking. Like at his Michelin-starred restaurant Babbo, where you can nosh on beef cheek ravioli with fresh squab livers and black truffles to the sound of Led Zeppelin.
Needless to say, we’re simmering with excitement to have Molto Mario join us at STORY to share some chapters from his new book America: Farm to Table as well as a few secret recipes.
And there’s no better way to get cooking like Mario than with his entire collection of chef tools, from responsibly harvested teak chopping blocks to made-in-Maine spice grinders. Or skip the preparation and go straight to source with Mario’s traditional pastas and small-batch sauces.
Pick up all of his goods and some of the iconic chef’s slow-cured salumi at the Mario Batali x Belcampo Father’s Day Trunk Show on June 18. Belcampo’s old-fashioned approach to butchery means all of the animals raised on their California farm are free to graze and all of the meat is certified organic. Now that’s one flavorful combination!
