That word -- "change" -- is on the lips of every presidential candidate this week, but my Food Network-fave Ina Garten may well be the picture of change.
I'm talking of course about her new barn & kitchen, built directly behind her home in the Hamptons.
Those old white painted wood cabinets, black honed granite and black Formica countertops, black and white linoleum tiles, the Sub Zero refrigerator, the 2 Bosch dishwashers, and 8-burner Viking stove have been replaced with...
...something that looks very similar. Notice the new open cabinet design and new knobs. Marvel at the 2 ovens in the center instead of the end.
I chalk this up to the fact that Ina probably already knew the stuff she had was more than "good"-- it was "really good." So why would she really change anything?
There's some new little room over there on the right...
and behind the island she has...
and what appears to be wood floors.
That's the refrigerator on the left. Another Sub Zero, I presume.
Plus, she has this fancy and bright new walkway that she came out of.
You did all that in one weekend, Ina?!
Oh Jeffrey... are you even surprised? ;-)
All in all, not a complete transformation, but I think I like it. I don't want too much change when it comes to Ina Garten.
The food she made during this ep (duck salad, butternut squash risotto, chocolate sorbet) looked especially delicious. Perhaps it was the new setting.
Either way... I wanna visit:
Dang! Maybe next time.
