YOU'VE eaten at the Osteria and have Mozza on speed dial. You've bought the orange cookware and the Crocs. Now there's a new item on Mario Batali's menu: a Swiss watch. The Ernst Benz Mario Batali Chronoscope has a watch face that's grooved like an LP, a reference to the celebrity chef's love of rock 'n' roll. The numerals, sweep-hand and watch band stitching are all orange, which any Batali fan worth his Maldon salt recognizes as the chef's favorite color.

Wash your hands with kitchen grease? Yes, and not any grease, but the grease from Mozza, the pizzeria and osteria co-owned by celebrated chefs Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali. The L.A. dining landmark has teamed up with Marshall Dostal, the founder of Further soap, to extract glycerin from waste grease, purify it and use it in a liquid cleanser scented with bergamot, olive and grasses. The soap, to be supplied to Mozza's restrooms, also is available for purchase. An 8-ounce pump bottle is $18.

When the focaccia emerges from the oven at Chi Spacca , it resembles a blistered and bubbly moonscape. Cheese bubbles up between gashes in the thin, crackling crust. I take a bite: This may be the single best thing I've put in my mouth all year. It tastes of olive oil, salt and tangy molten cheese all at once. This isn't the typical bready focaccia from Liguria, but a very particular version from Recco, a little hill town near Genoa. The focaccia is the result of two years' research by Nancy Silverton and Chi Spacca chef Chad Colby.
