After celebrity chef Mario Batali, facing sexual misconduct allegations, posted an online apology followed by a baking method for cinnamon rolls, veteran magazine editor Tina Brown chose to suggest another recipe.

In his email newsletter, Batali acknowledged his "many mistakes" and apologized for disappointing family, friends and fans.

"That behavior was wrong and there are no excuses", he said. "I take full responsibility", the message reads.

MB: A cinnamon roll recipe should do the trick. "Sharing the joys of Italian food, tradition and hospitality with all of you, each week, is an honor and privilege".

The chef went on to thank his fans and promised to "work every day to regain your respect and trust".

Batali's representative, Risa Heller, did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Friday. Now, ABC has officially cut ties with him and announced that he will no longer appear on daily daytime talk show The Chew. But Monday's statement added: "Although the identities of most of the individuals mentioned in these stories have not been revealed to me, much of the behavior described does, in fact, match up with ways I have acted". Batali had stepped away from the show after allegations first published on Monday, with ABC launching a review. For this reason, I am going to step away from day-to-day operations of my businesses.
