Mapping the Mario Batali Genome

BataliThe ancestral makeup of celebrity chef Mario Batali, among others, will be revealed in "Faces of America," a new PBS series from the producers of "African American Lives" and "Oprah’s Roots."

Like those earlier programs, in which Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. helped analyze the DNA of notable African Americans to explore their historic ancestries, the new series will explore the identity of a new slate of celebrities -- this time from a wide variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Will we discover a biological basis for Batali's preference for Crocs? Did the first Batalis also go gaga for guanciale? We can only hope.

"Faces of America" is expected to air on PBS in 2010.
