Iron Chef Mario Batali

Yesterday, Iron Chef Mario Batali came to Fort Hood to sign his new book. A couple years ago, Emeril Lagasse came and I stood in line hours to see him. Sadly, I had to leave for a meeting and Kevin finished waiting in life for me to get his autograph. I like Mario well enough, but he's not my favorite chef (sorry Mario). He is however, one of Kevin's favorites, so being the nice wife that I am, I went and stood in line to get a book signed for him. He was a nice man (at least he seemed so in the 45 seconds I was next to him to get this pic taken and have him sign my book!

That is so cool that Mario was at Ft. Hood. I know the Batali family. Mario's and my dad worked together for years - in Madrid and then in London.
The one and only time I met Mario (he was probably 20 yrs old) was at the Batali home in Madrid and he made paella for us! Yummy!!
