This man looks like he is about to explode, not a good ad for his food. He leads an unhealthy lifestyle,
Hugh Sansom knows his pizza! Three cheers for New Haven. Pepe's! Sally's! Modern! Hooray!
Can you comment on canned tomatoes. without mentioning brands, what do you look for?
And whay so much salt in canned tomatoes and paste?Thanks
I find it misleading to characterize "carbs" as Mario just did. Junk "carbs" as opposed to italian food carbs in pizza and pasta? What does that mean?
What about whole grains? How many pizzas use whole grain dough, Mario?
Nasty snack foods are nothing but carbs? Are you kidding? There's plenty of fat in almost any snack but pretzels.
BTW, I'm glad to hear Mario Batali say we don't need to eat so much meat & give an environmental basis for that advice. We need more high-profile people like him taking that position!
ohhhh, PLEASE give us more "Spain,On the Road Again". Just go anywhere with your three friends again(especially my boyfriend Bittman) and film it for us. that show was fantastic; i could taste and smell everything you ate, and the armchair tour of spain was spectacular! thanks, Mario
Is part of the influence on meat-eating in the US the legacy of northern European immigration? The growing season in northern Europe is much shorter than in Italy or Spain and there is to this day a much greater reliance on meat, especially sea food. (It helps that Britain and the Scandinavian countries were major seafaring nations.)
Also, I remember Julia Child saying that she like McDonald's (just not frequently).
And, I've had pizza in New Haven -- New York pizza ain't so good.
