Mario Batali is Jealous of John Podesta and His Leaked Emails

Only Croc-wearing chef Mario Batali could find himself in the position of envying Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, whose hacked e-mails have provided unflattering headlines for months.

Batali boiled over at a 2015 Podesta e-mail to former Clinton Foundation official Peter Huffman that revealed the secret to a sensational creamy risotto.

Podesta advised adding stock slowly and stirring to give “the risotto its creamy consistency.”

At an event for food blog Food52 this week, where Podesta cooked his rock-star risotto, Batali quipped, “I need to put my book on WikiLeaks, because Podesta’s risotto recipe is now the best-known in the world.”
