Mario  Batali studied Theatre, Economics and Spanish Language, at Rutgers University, which was not related to culinary at all. Batali first started studying culinary at Le Cordon Bleu, but it was too slow according to Mario, so Mario decided to learn everything while working in the kitchen. At first he worked as a dishwasher, but soon enough he became a pizza maker at the same restaurant. Batali was determined to reach his goals and worked in many restaurants in order to learn as much as he could. 1993 was the year when Mario’s career as a professional chef blossomed, and Batali together with Joe Bastianich opened a restaurant. As the restaurant quickly became successful and acclaimed by many, they decided to open more restaurants in different cities. The success of these restaurants has added a lot to Mario Batali’s net worth.

Another activity that has had a huge impact on Mario Batali’s net worth is his appearances in television shows. From the beginning of Mario’s career up to now, he has appeared on many  shows, including “Iron Chef America: Battle of the Masters”, “Chefography”, “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations”, “Bitter Feast”, “Saturday Night Live” and many others.

In addition to these, Batali together with Vic Firth created kitchen tools of special design, which gained them quite a good sum of money. Mario also writes cooking books, almost all of which gained popularity and have impacted Batali’s net worth: “Mario Batali Simple Italian Food: Recipes from my Two Villages”, “Vino Italiano; The Regional Wines of Italy”, “Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes to Cook at Home”, “Molto Batali: Simple Family Meals from My Home to Yours” are only a few books from Mario’s bibliography. By writing these cooking books Batali not only gained a lot of money but was also able to share his knowledge about Italian cuisine with other people all over the world.

In his personal life, Mario Batali has been married to Susi Cahn since 1994, and they have two sons.

Mario is a noted philanthropist, having founded The Mario Batali Foundation in 2008, which attempts to ensure children are well nourished.
