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.

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.

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.

It's a good thing Nancy Silverton still has her day job. The La Brea Bakery founder and queen of L.A.'s restaurant scene is among the legions of investors who've lost their fortunes in the alleged $50-billion fraud attributed to New York financier Bernard L. Madoff. The financial pain is bad enough, Silverton says, but what makes it worse is that she ignored the advice of her father and others who warned her to diversify her investments.
