Chef Mario Batali wants to cook you the #BestMealEver…and Bono wants to sing for his supper…
In the greatest culinary journey to date, Bono makes a rare appearance on Instagram to promote Mario Batali’s cooking lesson on Omaze.com – part of (RED)’s EAT (RED). DRINK (RED) to SAVE LIVES for an AIDS free generation.

In short, Mario’s helping to raise a lot of dough for a cause that’s very dear to his heart – a cause that he calls one of the greatest challenges of our time – the fight against AIDS. So, Mario and Omaze.com are offering one lucky foodie the chance to see their culinary dreams come true. And making the contest truly sweet is that each $10 ticket entry helps fight AIDS and save lives by helping to provide HIV+ pregnant women access to the lifesaving medication they heed to ensure that their children are born HIV free.
The Omaze.com contest is part of this June’s EAT (RED) DRINK (RED) SAVE LIVES campaign to #86AIDS, spearheaded by Mario Batali. The term “86” is food industry lingo for something no longer being available. It’s ‘nixed’! And that is what Mario, Omaze and a team of some of the biggest names in food are working for on the anniversary month of June in which AIDS was discovered 33 years ago – to help ‘86 AIDS’.
From June 1- June 10th, hundreds of restaurants, food trucks, bars and food markets worldwide are adding a (RED) item to their menus and making donations to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. Learn more about the campaign at RED.ORG.
Singing to promote a supper experience like no other, the video promotes a once-in-a-lifetime cooking experience with Mario Batali, currently running as part of a competition on Omaze.com.
For ten dollars, anyone can enter, with proceeds going to fight AIDS. The randomly chosen winner will be flown to New York to cook, and eat, with Mario Batali. Mario in turn released a new video in which he marvels at the delicious details of the experience.
