The Babbo Cookbook Teacher’s Guide
But as far as the rest of the recipes go, I found most of them to be pretty inaccessible to home cooks due to either exotic ingredients or the incredible amounts of preparation time required.
In all fairness, the recipes that a restaurant kitchen uses are often difficult to translate to ones that can be prepared at home – when a restaurant is cooking in large quantities over extremely high heat, it’s difficult to reduce the ingredients to typical home serving sizes that are then prepared on a stovetop.
But the cookbook does present itself as allowing home chefs to recreate Babbo’s dishes. In order to do that, you’d need to make your own pasta, and then gather such ingredients as duck eggs, baby octopus, and a pig’s head. Yes, you read that correctly – if you want to make Warm Testa, you need to get a pig’s head. But you only need half, so you could probably just give the other half to a friend.
There were a few recipes that made the book worth getting – the aforementioned Bolognese, an Osso Bucco, an Olive Oil and Fresh Rosemary Cake – as well as some that could be changed to be easier for the home chef with a little time and thought as to adjustments you could make to the recipes on your own.
But I’d suggest getting this book from the library before purchasing it. To me it seemed like more of a novelty cookbook that would make you want to eat at Babbo rather than attempt the recipes at home. Jan 03, Candace rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 24, Joyce rated it liked it Shelves: I’m actually somewhat put off by this cookbook simply because the recipes are such that you can’t just whip them up after work.
Rather, these recipes require a trip to the market first and a search for hard to find ingredients. Having said that, the recipes and photos look divine. I tried the Bolognese sauce, but was disappointed. It was good, but had higher expectation.
So my rating has come down a notch. Jul 31, Catherine Woodman rated it really liked it. I love the shrimp, clams and galric recipe–one of the shrimps I make all the time–great flavor, super easy, can be done at the last minute so your guests aren’t sitting alone too long–but there is alot about this cookbook that is not accessible to the week night cook. Nov 17, Rachel rated it liked it. I really enjoy this cookbook but its fatal flaw is there are some poorly written recipes.
I suggest reading, then re-reading before executing anything in this book.
