There are certain chefs I love that I am just happy to be able to say I have met. There is something about having their signed cookbook in my collection that makes finding a recipe that much more endearing when you are looking for inspiration for your Sunday meal. Today, I got to meet Mario Batali. It was brief, but just enough as his new cookbook now joins the other recipe compilations I treasure. This leaves me with one chef left on my list that I would truly like to meet… the man who took my love for cooking to a new level, Jamie Oliver. Someday. In the meantime, here is my photo with Mr. Batali, a fellow Crocs wearer!
