Is Mario Batali Leaving Food Network?

Pin it button
Chef Mario Batali has been chopped from TV's Food Network, said yesterday's New York Post.

Now in today's Post, Batali says he is not done. He might stick around on Food Network's Iron Chef America. Gotta love the tabloid headline: "TV Chef: Don't Stick A Fork in Me."

New York magazine chimes in: "The only New Yorker we've ever forgiven for wearing Crocs has been fired from the Food Network."

Is Food Network dumping another kitchen heavyweight to make room for more reality shows? Would Next Food Network Star champ Amy Finley look good in orange clogs?

Mario and Gwyneth Paltrow are taping a show about Spanish food for PBS.
