Mario Batali, New York, USA

Mario Batali

His involvement in the Eataly, New York City, is only the latest act of a career in which, he, as chef, restaurant owner, food commentator and TV personality, has constantly promoted quality Italian cuisine and culture. His business success is based on a solid knowledge of the history of Italian cuisine, its regional characteristics and Italy in general. Millions of Americans have been introduced to genuine tenets of Italian cuisine thanks to Mario’s communication skills. He has always had a special relationship with Bologna and his province where he made his first steps as a chef, and during IDIC 2010 he was pronounced honorary Apostolo della Tagliatella.
