The Kickoff: GP & Mario Host a Dinner

“Advertisement"Advertisement

To give the goop x Cadillac Road to Table event series the liftoff it deserves, we hooked up with longtime GP pal Mario Batali to co-host a good old fashioned dinner party—but not before guests got to go on a Cadillac XT5 test drive, which began at the Whitney museum and ended at Batali’s newest restaurant, La Sirena. The Batali-curated feast of tricolore salad, handmade agnolotti, and other Italian delicacies was accompanied by wines from The Bastianich Winery and ended with a sweet takeaway from Mast Brothers chocolate. Next stop for Road to Table: Chicago!

Recipes

  • Tricolore with Chianti Vinaigrette & Parmigiano Reggiano

    Tricolore with Chianti Vinaigrette & Parmigiano Reggiano

    Rather than emulsifying this simple vinaigrette, we mix it just before serving. An emulsified vinaigrette would cloy to the leaves of hearty greens like these, but this broken dressing just lingers on the lettuce. Make sure to use high-quality olive oil—you’ll taste the difference.

  • Sweet Corn Agnolotti with Basil Butter

    Sweet Corn Agnolotti with Basil Butter

    Fresh pasta isn’t the sort of dish one might make regularly at home, but if you have extra corn from the farm stand, it’s really worth the effort. Make a big batch on a lazy weekend and freeze in batches (pasta can stay in an air-tight container dusted with semolina for three weeks)—that way you can enjoy these morsels of summer flavor well into the fall.

  • Olive Oil-Poached Halibut with Squash Ragu

    Olive Oil-Poached Halibut with Squash Ragu

    This dish is a celebration of summer squash. We build a ragu using the flesh of the vegetable, sautée slices, and garnish with a julienne. It is the season reincarnate.
