Mario Batali Cooks Up a Hot Mess

10/10/2006 7:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mario BataliWorld famous celebrity chef Mario Batali may know a lot about cooking, but his most recent outfit has left us with a bad taste in our mouth.

The Food Network host arrived at the NY premiere of the movie "Infamous" on Monday sporting shorts, colored socks, and orange Crocs. An ensemble more appropriate for sight seeing, than seeing a movie premiere.

So unless he's planning on spending the evening touring the Statue of Liberty, we hope in the future Mario changes into something a little more comfortable -- to our eyes.

MAMAMIA!

HEY, ATLEAST HIS CROCKS MATCH HIS WRIST WATCH. HE SO FAT, THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE RIGHT SIZE OF TUX FOR HIM...

ADD A HAT AND HE CAN LOOK LIKE SOME GIANT LEPRACHAUN, HAHA.

PERSONALLY, I DON'T CARE MUCH FOR HIM. HE'S A WANNA BE ITALIAN, I DONT EVEN BELIEVE HE HAS AN ITALIAN BACKGROUND PROBABLY CHANGED HIS NAME.

not a dumb rich whore    

Leave him alone! This HAS been his uniform for years, and its quite practical for what he does!
And even if he wasn't Italian, he has revolutionized the culinary arts! Its people like him who make art like his accessible that have influenced countless other young artists.

And those who make fun of his size: HES A FRIGGIN CHEF! HE COOKS GREAT TASTING FOOD ALL FRIGGIN DAY! HOW DO YOU NOT GAIN A FEW POUNDS!?

Croks are the biggest shoe scam since "Jellies".

PS. Not a Mario fan, no matter what the F he wears. Go Challenger! Beat Iron Chef Batali! He's bloated.

Crocks are great if you stand on your feet all day. Its like walking on a cloud. I wear them, but mine are black. I could care less what anybody thinks about how I look, but Mario does look like he's ready for work instead of a movie premiere. As far as him being fat, I guess its pretty hard to stay out of the food he makes. He must do a lot of taste-testing. Not everyone can be thin and beautiful, somebody has to be fat and unattractive....at least Mario is very talented.
