Originally uploaded by beastandbean. The write up inside the local magazine is about PBS's "Spain...On the Road Again" which features chefs Batali, Mark Bittman (of How to Cook Everything and The Minimalist fame), and actresses Gweneth Paltrow and Claudia Bassols.
No mention in the article, however, that "Super" Mario, at age 27, was the head chef at the Four Seasons Biltmore here in Spanish-flavored Santa Barbara back in the 80's!
