WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel And Mario Batali Barge into Stranger’s House to Cook Lunch, Play Matchmaker

Once, Jimmy Kimmel heard a story about how Mario Batali would randomly cook dinner for strangers he met at parties, and liked the idea so much that he invited the celebrity chef to California to nab two random people off the street and make them lunch using only the ingredients in their kitchen.

Luckily for their Jimmy Kimmel Live! experiment, which aired last night, they ran into Lars from Switzerland, who had a garden, a motherlode of a fridge, and Swiss fondue. Even luckier: they ran into a hot girl named Nicole, and really, the entire segment is just Jimmy and Mario trying to get the two of them to make out. (NOW KISS!)

To sum it up: Mario Batali is a good yenta.
