What a nice treat for a Monday! The postman delivered 2 new cookbooks for my reading pleasure, of which one is Mario Batali Italian Grill--my first Batali cookbook. (The other cookbook is Mediterranean Fresh a compendium of salads and dressings). The book is full of beautiful, vibrant pictures--something that I love in a cookbook. There are nice sections explaining paring Italian wines with grilled foods, descriptions of ingredients, grill types and techniques.
The recipes aren't complicated--they are fairly straight forward grilled dishes made with simple ingredients. Batali presents the recipes in such a way that makes it seem easy to successfully recreate.
