I am *super* excited about Mario Batali's new cookbook, Molto Gusto, based on recipes from Otto, his NY enoteca and pizzeria. In addition to pizza and pasta, the book highlights antipasti based primarily on seasonal vegetables. The book will be released April 6th and is available by pre-order on Amazon.
In an interview with Food & Wine, Batali is quoted promoting the benefits of a pro-vegetable lifestyle.
"It will make everything better. The planet will live longer, people will feel better, their sex lives will get better, their apartments will get bigger. With more vegetables, it can all happen."Mario, hearing you talk about vegetables like that makes me wish I wrote this love letter to you.
