What Mario Batali Makes for His Family Christmas Eve Dinner

Mario Batali on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

Just before Christmas Chef Mario Batali was a guest on Jimmy Fallon's show. Mario talked about how his family spends Christmas in Michigan, cutting their own Christmas tree and making two feasts: on on Christmas Eve and one on Christmas Day. For Christmas Eve he makes three kinds of fish, crab claws, linguine with clams and baby eels sauteed with hot chiles and garlic. For Christmas Day, he makes smoked ham, cheddar biscuits with black truffle honey, and sweet potatoes. Jimmy's plans for Christmas dinner sound so awful, we really hope he hired a caterer. Mario also talked about his store and restaurant Eataly. Take a look:
