Eat This Now: Orecchiette with Lamb Neck Ragú and Orange Carrots at Del Posto

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

The other week when Ed and I stopped by Del Posto to check out their new gluten-free pasta options, I managed to sneak back into the kitchens afterwards to peep a quick look at how chef Matt Abdoo puts together what is quite possibly my favorite pasta dish on the menu (it's hard to choose). Check out how the Orecchiette with Lamb Neck Ragú and Orange Carrots is made, start to finish. More

Del Posto Offering Entire Pasta Menu Gluten-Free (and It's Good!)

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 19 comments

I was more than a bit skeptical when Del Posto Chef Mark Ladner emailed me a few weeks back claiming "We have perfected a fresh gluten free pasta recipe and now offer every single one of our pastas in a gluten-free version."

Perfect? Really? This I had to try for myself.

Recently, Del Posto (of the Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich restaurant empire) has expanded its dining experience with a series of classes that take you more deeply into the culture of Italy and its kitchen. I attended the first of the series last week, "Like Wine for Chocolate: Chocolate-Making and Wine Pairings with Del Post," led by sous chef and chocolatier Roger Rodriguez and sommelier Josh Eisenhauer. Here are snapshots of tempering chocolate on marble slabs, making chocolate trees, and more. More

Top 5 Restaurant Sweets of 2010

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Picking just five restaurant desserts is no easy feat—but in this list, you'll find plated desserts that are both delicious and accessible. At most places, you can just drop in at the bar or during off hours for dessert alone; and for the Chocolate Ricotta Tortino at Del Posto, make it the your dessert selection for their excellent $29 http://newyork.seriouseats.com/2009/12/new-menu-lunch-at-del-posto-mario-batali-italian-four-star-gamble-review.html.

Lunch at Del Posto: A Four-Star Italian Gamble Pays Off

New York Ed Levine 34 comments

What we found and tasted was stunning: Ladner has somehow managed to reconcile the earthy and the elegant, just what a four-star Italian restaurant has to do. The food at Del Posto is now grounded, focused, and crazy good. And that $29 lunch deal? It's a steal. Here's why. More

Cook the Book: 'Fat'

Lucy Baker Closed

This week's Cook the Book selection is all about fat, but I want to start off by talking about bread. More specifically, the best bread basket I've ever had. It was at Del Posto, the elegant (if somewhat imposing) Italian restaurant co-owned by Mario Batali and Joe and Lidia Bastianich. Overflowing with crunchy breadsticks, oven-fresh focaccia, and an assortment of rolls, the basket comes not only with butter but also with a small tureen of whipped lardo. That's right. Pork fat. It's surprisingly light, incredibly flavorful, and absolutely delicious. While the basket would still be very good without it, the whipped lardo adds an extraspecial element that raises the once-humble offering of bread to luxurious new heights. Ed Levine agrees... More
