  1. I came to Mario Batali s Babbo Cookbook by way of Bill Buford sHeat An Amateur s Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante Quoting Butcher in Tuscany, which is partially about time he spent working in the kitchen at Babbo I got really excited to make some good Bolognese sauce, so I requested The Babbo Cookbook from the library.I did make an excellent Bolognese from it recipe posted here that I will make again But as far as the rest of the recipes go, I found [...]


  2. most of the recipes in this book are time consuming and involve specialty italian ingredients, so it s not the most practical thing in the world, but holy meatballs are they good this is a good book to turn to special events or if you found a nice piece of meat or fish at the market and want to do it justice.warning this man has a serious addiction to butter and olive oil i ve found that if i cut out a little less than half of what he calls for, everything is still delicious and my arteries are [...]


  3. I m actually somewhat put off by this cookbook simply because the recipes are such that you can t just whip them up after work Rather, these recipes require a trip to the market first and a search for hard to find ingredients Having said that, the recipes and photos look divine I tried the Bolognese sauce, but was disappointed It was good, but had higher expectation So my rating has come down a notch.


  4. I love the shrimp, clams and galric recipe one of the shrimps I make all the time great flavor, super easy, can be done at the last minute so your guests aren t sitting alone too long but there is alot about this cookbook that is not accessible to the week night cook.


  5. Some great recipes I really enjoy this cookbook but its fatal flaw is there are some poorly written recipes I suggest reading, then re reading before executing anything in this book.One of my favorite things to cook in this book is the butternut squash orzo Wonderful and seasonal dish.


  6. Apaprently, Mario leaves out the secret touches that make his dishes soar at Babbo nevertheless, the book is beautiful and msot of the recipes appear very doable Besides, its an easy way to relive a dinner at Babbo without paying the price.


  7. There were lots of yummy sounding recipes in this book, but I felt like most of them would be a little harder for the average home cook Still was a great read



  8. I thought this was going to be celebrity crap, but so not Really good desserts Rosemary pound cake with lemon syrup that is simple and really good and travels well.











  9. Time consuming, expensive and artsy ingredeients combined with a pompous tone No thanks I d rather not cook with your book.
