A Chance To Meet Mario Batali

August 4, 2010

My wife pointed out this article in the New York Times today on celebrity Chef Mario Batali.  He actually has a getaway home on the Leelanau Peninsula.

While I was reading his Twitter account, I came across this interesting tidbit…

The Traverse City National Writers Series will host Food Network star and award-winning chef Mario Batali on the Historic Front Lawn of the Village at Grand Traverse Commons on August 14 for a spectacular outdoor celebration of food, chefs and restaurants, beer and wine, music and the local culinary culture.

An Evening with Mario Batali,” scheduled for 5-10 p.m, will feature dishes inspired by recipes in Batali’s cookbooks and prepared by chefs representing The Cook’s House and Epicure Catering, as well as world-famous mixologist Bridget Albert (who will create a signature Traverse City cocktail exclusively for the event), renowned magician and MC Billy Harris (of “Magic, Martinis and Mario” fame), and an interactive audience Q&A with Batali. The evening will close with music and dancing.

Tickets for “An Evening with Mario Batali” are on sale online at and Tickets range from $35-$100 and include two full plates of Batali food entrees (10 recipes total), cash bar, gelato station, live entertainment, an interactive audience Q&A with Batali and access to all event activities. Signed copies of Batali’s cookbooks will be available for purchase at the event. VIP tables are available. For more information, visit
