Overview

The Meatball Shop has quickly grown into a New York City dining destination. Food lovers from around the city and beyond are heading down to Manhattan’s Lower East Side for a taste of this breakout comfort food phenomenon. In this fun and satisfying cookbook, chef Daniel Holzman and general manager Michael “Meatball Mike” Chernow open up their vault of secrets and share nearly 100 recipes—from such tried-and-true favorites as traditional Bolognese Meatballs and Mediterranean Lamb Balls to more adventurous creations like their spicy Mini-Buffalo Chicken Balls and Jambalaya Balls.

Accompanying the more than twenty meatball variations are recipes for close to a dozen delectable sauces, offering endless options to mix and match: from Spicy Meat to Parmesan Cream to Mango Raisin Chutney. And what would a meatball meal be without succulent sides and simple salads to round out the menu: Creamy Polenta, Honey Roasted Carrots, and Marinated Grilled Eggplant, just to name a few. You’ll also find helpful tips on everything from choosing the best cuts of meat to creating the perfect breadcrumbs to building the ultimate hero sandwich.

There may not be a Meatball Shop near you—yet—but there’s a meatball for everyone (and lots more) in this crowd-pleasing cookbook that will have them lining up outside your kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
While James Villas’s latest book, From the Ground Up (Wiley, Oct. 2011), explores the intrinsic pleasures of ground meat, Holzman and Chernow try to go one better in this well-rounded collection by mixing a variety of meats with an assortment of fillers, shaping them into spheres, then frying, braising, or roasting, and pairing them with an agreeable sauce. The authors gained extensive experience bouncing between New York and California restaurants, and currently run the Manhattan and Brooklyn eateries from which the book derives its title. Having palled around since they were teens, it was perhaps inevitable that they would stoop to recipe names like duck balls, Fightin’ Irish balls (made with corned beef and cabbage), bunny balls, and grandma’s balls (chopped liver and matzoh crumbs). Purists and haters of double entendre will find comfort in the more traditional offerings centered around beef, lamb, and pork. Most of the 28 meatball recipes are proportioned to provide a couple dozen orbs, 1.5 inches in diameter. Sauce options include a spicy meat sauce, cilantro yogurt, and a mango raisin chutney. Side dishes, salads, and desserts make up the second half of the book and reflect a more serious culinary attitude through options such as fennel risotto and chocolate walnut meringues. But if they also toss in a mini chicken ball salad, it cannot be helped. That’s just the way they roll. (Nov.)
From the Publisher
“This cookbook, based on Michael and Daniel’s successful Meatball Shop restaurant, is comforting and full of life. Written in an easygoing voice that is fun and inspiring, it reflects America’s love affair with meatballs and now makes them accessible to everyone.”Scott Conant, chef and owner of Scarpetta restaurants, TV personality
 
“Daniel and Michael have built a business that is truly special, and this book is an accurate reflection of the kind of guys they are. Finally a book about balls written by two guys who have a big enough pair to impress even me.”—Andrew Zimmern, chef, author, and host of Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods

    "Sample" Review

    I saw these authors on a talk show and decided I wanted their book. Wanted to check out the NOOK format before I decided to buy it on my NOOK or as a regular book. But if you are looking to see what the recipe format on NOOK is...forget it. The sample is 25 pages long and just an introduction telling why and how the authors started their meatball business. I am going to buy the book on NOOK anyway and will review it after I take a look.

    Love this cookbook!

    My husband LOVES meatballs and I haven't made them in years 'cause "they aren't like his mother's!" Well, neither are these! What variety! Delicious, easy and freezable too. Thank you for putting life and adventure back into my cooking.

    NOT FOR NOOK HD (no PagePerfect, i.e. graphically enhanced, book

    NOT FOR NOOK HD (no PagePerfect, i.e. graphically enhanced, books are).  
    They don't tell you this when you purchase a NOOK HD - which is the updated version of the Nook Color.

    The newest reader gets fewer compatible books, and none with enhanced graphics!  Nice.
