TV show description:
A Food Network cooking show, hosted by culinary expert Mario Batali.
As one of New York’s premier chefs (who actually dropped out of culinary school), Batali believes that olive oil is as precious as gold, shorts are acceptable attire for every season, and food, like most things, is best when left to its own simple beauty.
America’s “King of Italian Cuisine” uses these principles while zestfully teaching audiences the wonders of Italian cuisine.
