Italian Grill is the ultimate handbook on Italian grilling and a must-have cookbook for home grillers from Mario Batali, superstar chef and bestselling author of Molto Batali, Molto Gusto, and Molto Italiano.
Easy to use and filled with simple recipes, Mario Batali's classic grilling handbook takes the mystery out of making tasty, earthy, smoky Italian food. In addition to the eighty recipes and the sixty full-color photographs, Italian Grill includes helpful information on different heat-source options, grilling techniques, and essential equipment. As in all his books, Batali's distinctive voice provides historical and cultural perspective as well.
Italian Grill features appetizers, pizza and flatbreads, fish and shellfish, poultry, meat, and vegetables. The delicious recipes include Fennel with Sambuca and Grapefruit, Guinea Hen Breasts with Rosemary and Pesto, Baby Octopus with Gigante Beans and Olive-Orange Vinaigrette, and Rosticciana (Ribs Italian-Style).

“In his new cookbook, Italian Grill, the star chef steps up to the grate with amazing recipes that express his extroverted approach to flavor.”

“Mario Batali is a madman/hero. Is there nothing he’s not good at? Great chef, successful restaurateur, an author, an intellectual, host of a ridiculously informative and much-too-good-for-television TV show, afficianado of fine rock and roll, and a man of Falstaffian appetites.”
“Ingenious....this is an essential collection for any serious backyard cook.”
