Watch Mario Batali and Jimmy Kimmel Cook for a Total Stranger


In the spirit of sharing a meal or something, Jimmy Kimmel thought it’d be a good idea to find a couple of strangers on the street in L.A. and then have Mario Batali cook for them at one stranger’s apartment, with whatever ingredients happened to be on hand. Lars from Switzerland and Nicole from the block seem a little flustered at first, but by the time Batali produces the feast — which includes braised brats and corn, Swiss fondue, fusilli all’amatriciana, not to mention mint and chives foraged from Lars’s backyard garden — everyone seems pretty into it. That’s what the magic of Mario is all about; check it out, straight ahead.
