Cookbook review: The Babbo Cookbook
The Babbo Cookbook ($26.40 at Amazon) is the cookbook from Mario Batali's flagship restaurant, Babbo. I ate there once--see review here--and it was phenomenal. So I got the cookbook. Now, granted, I find this book a hell of a lot more useful than the average home cook would. If your idea of a good recipe includes a can of cream of mushroom soup, you're not likely to find a recipe for beef cheek ravioli to be enlightening. That being said, it's very pretty and very inspirational, and I've successfully recreated several of the recipes, including one for bitter greens ravioli.
