Chef Mario Batali began his career in food service by starting out as a dishwasher at Stuff Yer Face in New Brunswick, NJ, 1979. After that, he moved on up to becoming a sous chef for the famous Marco Pierre White. Then, he became the assistant chef at La Volta in Borgo Capanne, Italy, 1989-92. In 1998 he opened Babbo, a NYC restaurant. He was famous for his Italian dish called Bucatini all’Amatriciana. Next, he became a TV cooking sensation. He left the show Iron Chef America because he said that they replaced to good judges with “skinny little actresses.” He said they were too timid about trying new things and that didn’t make for a good judge. Now he has his very own show on the Food Network channel called Molto Mario.
