  1. Combine fresh pineapple, a shallot, jalapeno, cilantro and red wine vinegar in a bowl to create a relish.

Mario Batali’s advice when cooking for others is to strike a balance and find something that all your guests can enjoy and feel great about. That is easier said than done, but I appreciate the sentiment.

    It would be nice if these recipes actually contained the amount of each ingredient. I couldn’t wait to see them on-line since we were told that we could find the recipes. These recipes make it a guessing game.

  2. Nadia says

    not fair, searched all over for the recipes that The View had with The Chew yesterday 3/28. Where are they?

    The recipe amounts were never specified on the show or made available by The View or The Chew. If anyone has luck tracking them down, let me know so I can update this and share the information with everyone.
