If you're looking to be both hungry AND mesmerized, you're gonna want to watch this video of Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang have lunch with Mario Batali. Actually, it might be brunch -- considering it's only 9am before the trio's first glass of wine.


Regardless of the meal's time-slot nomenclature, our buds at Munchies have brought us what we hope will be a series, Master of Lunch with Mario Batali:

As the show starts Aziz appears a little awkward, but time and wine increase his comfort and personality. I can only surmise he was as enthralled with Batali's cooking and knack for killer storytelling. Surely sitting front row for the epicurean performance, at 9am no less, is nothing short of transcendent and in his position I would abso-fucking-lutely be taking in every detail the entire meal.

You can watch the video below and grab the recipes over at Munchies. I'm off to go make some meatballs for dinner. ✌
