In Holiday Food, Mario Batali of the Food Network’s “Molto Mario” presents the most cherished Italian dishes of the Christmas season. The book consists of traditional Italian menus that take you through the four holidays, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.
The menus and recipes require time, effort, and a good dose of enthusiasm, but these are truly memorable and celebratory dishes that bring families together in the kitchen and at the table during a hectic time of the year.
All the dishes are created with true fanfare, and can be a family affair from start to finish. They are fun, festive, and epitomize Italian holiday cooking. For example, Christmas Eve calls for a seafood extravaganza—known as the Feast of Seven Fishes—and includes 15 dishes. In place of tried-and-true turkey with mashed potatoes, Mythic Pasta Dome would surely add a more festive note to any holiday party!
