Gwyneth Paltrow Heads To Spain With Mario Batali

It appears that Jake & Maggie Gyllenhaal are not the only celebrities who enjoy hanging out with Mario Batali. In a recent interview with W Magazine - complete with stunning photos - Gwyn states that she'll be co-hosting a PBS food show with Mario Batali. The show will be a road-trip set in Spain and will film this October and November. When asked about how it came about (the two are pals), Gwyn said:

"I told him, 'I'll go with you.' Later, he was like, 'Are you joking?' And I was like, 'No, I'm actually not joking!' "

"I eat all that stuff. The crazy fish things, the eels, I love it all."

We know that Mario's had this show in the works for a while - he signed a 26-episode deal this past Spring - but we had no idea he'd have a co-host! I don't know about you guys, but I think it could be a fun show. I'll definitely keep you posted if I hear anything else!

I saw her on Oprah and she did a segment where she cooked and she made fish. Apparently, she was working on a macrobiotic cookbook at one point. And she speaks fluent Spanish.

Wow, lucky Gwyneth. I have been a longtime fan of Mario Batali; he ROCKS and he cooks with pure joy and love. He really focuses on the cuisine of areas and what foods/wines are indigenous to a particular region. He and Gwyneth will have a FAB time. While most of us are familiar with his Italian cooking, Mario studied Spanish literature and I'm certain this series will be enlightening for all of us who love to cook, but even for those who don't. Great, fresh food prepared with love and zesto makes for buona petito!!!!

I think she eats fish but not red meat, but am not sure. At the end of the article, when asked about pork she says she'll have to skip out on that part.

I am sooooo jealous: I love Mario Batalli and am very happy he has another gig. I enjoyed his 'Molto Mario' food network show 1st thing in the morning on the food network, and was horribly sad to hear it was cancelled! His bombastic personality really inspired me to get-to and enjoy my day. I guess Gwen backed down on her macro-biotic vegan diet. Good thing too- because if I was facing Mario, I'd do the same!
