With fifteen restaurants, eight cookbooks and a host of television shows, including the ever-popular Iron Chef America, Mario Batali is arguably one of the most recognized and respected chefs working in America today. This, combined with his larger-than-life personality, is the reason that he has received accolades like GQ Magazine’s Man of the Year and the James Beard Award for Outstanding Chef. Mario and his business partner Joe Bastianich own fifteen restaurants across the country including their flagship New York City restaurant Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca, as well as, two restaurants in Los Angeles and three in Las Vegas. The duo’s latest venture is Eataly, a 50,000 foot marketplace located in New York City. Raised in Seattle, Mario studied the golden age of Spanish theater at Rutgers University. Soon after graduating, he took his first bite of culinary training at Le Cordon Bleu in London, from which he withdrew almost immediately due to a "lack of interest." An apprenticeship with London’s legendary chef Marco Pierre White and three years of intense culinary training in the Northern Italian village of Borgo Capanne (population 200) gave him the essential skills and knowledge to return to his native U.S. Mario is also the author of eight cookbooks including the James Beard Award Winning, Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes (Ecco 2005) and the New York Times Bestseller Mario Batali Italian Grill (Ecco 2007). His new highly anticipated eighth cookbook, Molto Gusto, based on the classic and celebrated dishes of Otto Enoteca Pizzeria (Ecco 2010) hit shelves this spring. In May of 2008, Mario started the Mario Batali Foundation with a mission to feed, protect, educate, and empower children. Mario splits his time between New York City’s Greenwich Village and northern Michigan with his wife and their two sons.
