Summer entertaining is heating up, who better than world-famous chef Mario Batali to reveal his tasty tips for entertaining this season?
Part-time Michigander Mario Batali and Pure Michigan have teamed up to introduce recipes and party tips for summer cooking, as well as share the scoop on the best of Michigan’s food scene and top must-see destinations in the state this summer.
"I first fell in love with Michigan almost eleven years ago and have been coming back ever since,” said Batali. “My wife and I eventually bought a summer home here, and I really enjoy the respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The weather is amazing, the people are fantastic, and of course, the food scene has exploded."
Three all-new Mario Batali recipes that are sure to please at any summer gathering. These recipes showcase a few of Mario's favorite locally sourced ingredients – fresh Michigan cherries, Walleye fillets, Artisanal salami from Bella Fortuna Restaurant in Lake Leelanau and Leelanau Cheese Raclette from Suttons Bay.
And winemaker Mark Johnson from Chateau Chantal Winery on the Old Mission Peninsula has paired each dish with a complementing wine.
Impress friends and family throughout the season by serving up one of these Pure Michigan recipes!
