Recipe Lab, a monthly feature, invites you to cook with the Dining section. Well publish a recipe from a new cookbook for you to try; the following week, the books author will join Julia Moskin and readers in a live video chat. This month were making a pesto pizza by Mario Batalis sons; you can watch the video chat with Mario, Benno and Leo Batali here on Diners Journal on Wednesday, June 26, at 7 p.m. Eastern time.
Who better than Mario Batali, whose teenage sons have just published a cookbook in his honor, to anchor a Recipe Lab dedicated to teaching children, or novices of any age, how to cook?
The Batali Brothers Cookbook includes recipes from Benno, 16, and Leo, 14, and also from Mario, who edited some of his classic dishes into simpler, weeknight-dinner versions.
Mr. Batali has an edge on the rest of us when it comes to teaching children their way around a cutting board, but the principles of learning by doing, showing respect for food, and cooking on a basic yet thoughtful level, as he put it, are fundamental.

I’m in no mood for a bamey lovin fat slob cook......at least they don’t force us to watch this crap....but maybe that’s comin....
Mario is a Michelle and Barry Obama sycophant. I have absolutely no use for him.
I recognize everyone except for the chick second from the left.
The Batali Brothers Cookbook
What a completely generic boring title. It should have been called “We Can’t Help Our Old Man Likes to Wear Giant Orange Rubber Clogs, But Hey What You Gonna Do?” or “What We Learned About Cooking From Our Giant Ginger Father.”
That picture just ruined my respect for Alton Brown. I had none for Batali, but Emeril should know better than to schmooz with filthy leftists.
I think the person in the brown sport coat is Alton Brown and he is a big 2A supporter.
She’s the White House executive chef, Cristeta Comerford, hired by Mrs. Laura Bush in 2005. She is a native of the Philippines.
Yecccch. He’s one of those smug limo liberals who did a food stamp challenge, feeding his family of 4 on $500 for one month. If he’s really concerned about poor, hungry people, invite them to eat for free at his “refined and elegant” restaurants. Just another hypocrite snob. But it’s ok for him to be wealthy and exclusive because he supports Democrats.
You get $500 a month in food stamps for a family of four? I can feed my entire family of seven on than amount of money and none of us are thin, including the 2 month old who is on formula. And that $hi+ is expensive!
I have got to get me one of those magic EBT Obama cards!
$31 per person, so $124 a week, $496 a month. And he was soooo hungry. I am sure many FReeper families get by on that or less.
I admit that all of my socks are white and my underwear is plaid.
I know nothing about fashion but is what the first lady wearing appropriate or even legal?
Good Lord! Does Stevie Wonder pick out her clothes?
Could be cause with this regime being black is qualification for any job.
And what's up with the guy to her left? Are those his hunting shoes and socks? YOU ARE AT THE WHITE HOUSE!
We ate at his restaurant in Las Vegas. Overpriced, not that good and pretentious. I can’t stand looking at him.
You're kidding. Really?
“Alton Brown and he is a big 2A supporter.
You’re kidding. Really?”
