What goes best with one of Mario Batali’s favorite bottles of wine? Well, pie of course.
The celebrity chef knows a little something about food and wine, and this week he took to Twitter to tell his more than 400,000 followers that he enjoys pie from the Grand Traverse Pie Company with one of his favorite pinot grigio’s.
Batali, who has acheived tremendous success and fame through his restaurants, cookbooks, vineyard, and philanthropic efforts, tweeted out a photo of a cherry pie from the Grand Traverse Pie Co. along with a bottle of Barrymore Pinot Grigio.
“Barrymore Pinot Grigio and cherry pie is a perfect combo for me…..yummy! Wheeeee!!!!” Batali tweeted.
In response, the GT Pie Co. “Pie Lady” shared tweets with Batali, who was appreciative of the pie, which was delivered to him as part of the annual National Pie Day celebration.
Batali maintains a home in northern Michigan, where he frequently shares his love of the area, its food, and surroundings.
The Grand Traverse Pie Co. has 15 locations in Michigan and Indiana, serving delicious pies, sweet treats, breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
