Chelsea Clinton Praises Mario Batali

Thursday, May 2, 2013

The Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit Honoring Quentin Tarantino - ArrivalsCHELSEA Clinton has heaped praise on Mario Batali, saying he’s been a huge influence on her life.

Clinton explained it was over a dinner by the superstar chef that her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, met her parents, Bill and Hillary, for the first time.

“It’s not hyperbole to say I could not imagine my life in New York or really my life in general without Mario,” she said.

“The first meal I shared with the man I am now very happy to call my husband and the people I am now very happy to call my husband’s in-laws, otherwise known as my parents, was at Babbo. Thankfully, that went well.”
