Summer is here and in full effect, well now that we think of it, it’s on his last legs!  Once we realize we need a desperate break from the BBQ cuisine of summer we automatically crave a wonderful plate of pasta with the freshest taste of authentic pasta sauce.  Mario Batali pasta sauce is an authentic line of all natural pasta sauces, made with fresh ingredients and prepared simply with no preservatives, purees or added sugars.

ORIGIN

Mario Batali was born on September 19th, 1960 in Seattle Washington.  Batali began his culinary journey at Le Cordon Bleu in London.  He withdrew almost immediately and took apprenticeship with London’s legendary chef Marco Pierre White and three years of intense culinary training in the Northern Italian Village of Borgo Capanne which catapulted him with the skills and knowledge to return to his native U.S. and start his growth to unlimited success.

Mario Batali’s list of attributes are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his love for cooking.  He is a celebrated American chef, writer, restaurateur, media personality and philanthropist, supporting many food bank and literacy programs through the Mario Batali Foundation.
