Until now, it was only a fantasy to imagine having Mario Batali by your side every night as you made your evening meal.

The dream is over: this summer you’ll be able to get your hands on a Food Flippin’ Mario, complete with orange get-up and ponytail.

As Josh over at the The Food Section points out, at $15.95, it sure beats being stuck with the bill at Del Posto.
