Cheflebrity Mario Batali is featured on the cover of SB Wine & Dine

Mario Batali (January 2008)

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! 

The article is not online, yet, but go pick up a copy available in fine newsracks near you. (hint...the one next to Elements Restaurant.)

Wow. I'll have to find out when that airs on PBS here. I shoulda been a chef.
