Happy Birthday Chef Mario Batali

Recognize this vintage cookbook? Well ... not really vintage per se, but this is an early Mario Batali cookbook from 1998 called Simple Italian Food. When we heard Mario Batali's birthday is today (September 19th), we dug through our archives as we remember selling this cookbook back in the early days of our company. Indeed, we made someone's day with a $5.99 price tag for one of the first cookbooks we ever sold at our eBay store. Anyway, we couldn't let the day pass without honoring the birthday of one of the world's top celebrity chefs. "Happy Birthday Mario" from Cookbook Village.
