Chef Mario Batali Teaches Jenny McCarthy How to Make Pork Shepherd's Pie

Posted on March 17, 2013

Jenny McCarthy was a guest on The Chew for the St. Patrick's Day episode. In this clip, Chef Mario Batali teaches Jenny to make shepherd's pie using pork instead of lamb or beef. Mario uses quite a bit of horseradish in the dish and notes that you could also add beer to the recipe. Jenny says she's good at heating things up in the microwave. Nevertheless, Mario put her to work as a sous-chef. Her jobs were to grate the horseradish and rice the potatoes. She'd never seen a potato ricer before, so it's probably best that Mario did all the actual cooking. Take a look:
