Mario Batali has made several visits to his buddy Jimmy Fallon's late-night show, and Tuesday Fallon returned favor and came by 'The Chew' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). As they cooked some wine-stained garganelli in "ugly holiday sweaters," Jimmy told a funny story about going grocery shopping with Batali while on a golf vacation in Ireland.
"It was the coolest thing ... it was like, how does he hold the cart different than I do?" Fallon joked, as Batali demonstrated his cart-pushing runway walk. Batali enlisted Fallon as his shopping assistant, and Fallon ran around the store picking up things for him. Sent on a mission to find a grill-pan, Fallon went exploring, only to find an entire Mario Batali Cookware aisle. Jimmy made Batali go up to the counter and buy his own pan, while pointing out to the cashier that his friend's picture was on the packaging. Batali still had to pay full price.
