Mario Batali made the braciole from his new book, Italian Grill, on Jimmy Kimmel's show last night. Kimmel did indicate he knew his braciole. "I'm from Brooklyn," he said. That, Mario said, is known as "Western Italy." The whole exchange, after the jump.
Mario Batali on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'
Batali: We're going to make beef braciole, now are you familiar with that?
Kimmel: Well yeah, my family always said bra-CHOLE... we didn't pronounce that right?
Mario: The Italian word is brah-CHO-leh and each different province has its own dialect or it's own little accent. So your family, that's probably a southern Italian family?
Kimmel: Well, we're in Brooklyn.
Mario: Brooklyn? That's western Italian culture.
