Mario Batali -- Crockin' and Rollin'

5/11/2009 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We had one minute with chef Mario Batali before he and his hideous orange Crocs jumped onto a moped and took off -- but that was enough time for him to give us a tasty recipe that even the cooking-challenged could master.

Ooooo Noooo!    

Somebody forgot to tell him he's in La-La Land NOT back home in ROME where orange plastic shoes, white socks and a Vispa scooter might be in fashion. You can't wear that in Hollyweird.

I don't think he wears crocs, I think they're clogs or something. He always wore those orange things even back in 2000, probably way before crocs even came out.

I finally agree with TMZ on something. Those shoes are hideous, whatever they are. And he wears them with the white socks and shorts everywhere. He is revolting.

He is cool but has also been enjoying the culinary arts far too much. He's gotten unhealthily obese over the last few years....it's got to be hard though, around all that great food and how does one resist? I sympathize.

A vile, hate spewing moron does not a decent human being make.
Why are people so rotten for no apparent reason?
Whatever.
I think he actually looks like he lost a bit of weight. He was much heavier a year ago. He lso seems genuinely nice.

Repeat after me - mopeds can only carry one person, scooters can carry two - there, that wasn't too hard was it?

He and G. Paltrow went on a food tour awhile back for some network. I thought the same thing, he looks like he's lost a bit of weight. The shorts and organge clogs/crocs have been his signature trademark for years and years now. Most famous chefs have some type of famous trademark they're known for in addition to their cuisine.

A moped is basically a bicycle with a motor--mopeds always have pedals. A scooter is basically a motorcycle on which you sit upright, with your feet in front of you, rather than straddle. Mopeds have very low top speeds, whereas there are scooters with top speeds equivalent to those of the fastest motorcycles. I'm just sayin.'
