It's very cool that Batali puts up the recipes on that site. I've never been to New York, but when I get there Babbo will be first on my dining list.
I have one Batali cook book that I like a lot, but some of the dishes my wife finds a bit too adventurous.
I also want to read the book Heat, by Bill Buford. It's about the time he spent as Mario Batali's kitchen "slave". Should be hitting the bargain books shelves sometime soon.
How about those mosquitoes?
