Now that the election is finally over, we can sit down and have a civilized meal celebrating the best of this country. Mario Batali’s newest cookbook, the aptly titled Big American Cookbook, covers a gamut of recipes—more than 250 in all—that represents our most beloved dishes, from state-fair favorites and shared dishes at church socials to specialties from various ethnic groups that make up this great nation of ours.
To celebrate the cookbook’s launch, Batali’s Las Vegas chefs, including culinary director Nicole Brisson and executive chef Brett Uniss, will select 10 dishes from Big American Cookbook to create a memorable meal on Friday, November 18. On the menu are oyster barbecue, deviled eggs, clam rolls, pierogies, Fisherman’s Wharf cioppino, bison rib eye and Texas caviar, among others. For dessert, the very patriotic Boston cream pie will make an appearance, along with Grape-Nuts ice cream.
The dinner is $135 per person and includes cocktails and an autographed cookbook. Call 702-266-9971 to reserve seats.
