Mario Batali Apologizes for Past Behavior, Shares New Recipe at Same Time

Mario Batali Apologizes for Past Behavior, Shares New Recipe at Same Time

Four women have so far come forward with shocking claims about celebrity cook Mario Batali's alleged sexual misconduct.

"That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses", he said. "I take full responsibility". To the people who have been at my side during this time - my family, my partners, my employees, my friends, my fans - I am grateful for your support and hopeful that I can regain your respect and trust.

But this one, given what preceded it, drew some public derision.

Food Network said in an emailed statement on Friday that the broadcasting network has canceled plans to relaunch "Molto Mario", the cooking show that helped launched Batali's career, in light of the accusations.

He then included the recipe for the dish along with a picture.

A TV chef at the centre of a sex scandal has been roasted on Twitter after posting a half-baked apology on the internet - complete with a recipe for cinnamon rolls. "My bad. 2017 gonna 2017", says another. His representative did not return a message seeking comment Friday.

Allegations of sexual misconduct by the chef surfaced this week in a report published by Eater, the restaurant news site. At least three of the women have worked for Batali in some capacity.

He has also been kicked off ABC'S "The Chew", while his products will be dropped by major retailers including Walmart and Target.

The chef has stepped away from his restaurant empire, which includes eateries in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas. He remains an owner of the group, which he founded with restaurateur Joe Bastianich. Brown said Saturday in an interview with CNN's Michael Smerconish.

Neither that statement nor Friday's newsletter referred to the Eater report. "Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behaviour described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted", he admitted.

Batali had been a host on ABC's "The Chew" for the past several years.
