Mario Batali to Reveal Joy of (Vegetarian) Cooking

Written by PETA | August 11, 2010


Not long ago, we told you that celebrity chef Mario Batali was introducing special “Meatless Mondays” options at all of his 14 restaurants. Well, thanks to, we get to meat meet up with Mario for a progress report: He says that he feels better as his diet becomes increasingly veggie-heavy. And he predicts that environmental concerns will prompt others to embrace a vegetarian diet. Oh—and he reveals that his own vegetarian cookbook is in the works.

Could Batali be channeling vegan chef Tal Ronnen? I’d love to think so, but one thing’s for certain: Both Chef Mario and Chef Tal are inspiring countless flesh-loving foodies to think outside the T-bone.

    Wondering if PETA has Plan to confront the Kennel clubs and dog and cat breaders around the world. This is one of the most horrible acts that is being perpetrated on the planet. At least those catching fish food etc. need it to eat. These people cull and that means kill all those animals that do not meet their mutant idea of perfection. They continue to knowingly dangerously imbreed and perpetrate ongoing mutations causing disease and unimangiable suffering in the animals the increases with each litter. Maybe I missed your voice on this somehow. Woul like to hear it now.
