I wish more American cooking shows aired in Italy. We have shows from the UK and France but not many (only the Masterchef shows) from the USA. I wonder why?
I think the Barefoot Contessa would do well here. What’s there not to love? Ina makes fantastic food and the settings/locations are gorgeous (that kitchen!).
I was so excited when the latest issue of ELLE DECOR showed up in my mailbox. One, because it’s a miracle when my magazines from the United States arrive on time, or at all, and two, because there was a beautiful spread featuring Ina’s garden.
It took Ina and Jeffrey ten years to convince the owners to sell the overrun pasture next to their property. Ten years. It was well worth the wait. The design of this garden, by landscape designer Edwina von Gal, is spectacular. I love the formality of the boxwoods mixed with the casualness of the roses, Russian sage, and other plants.
You can read more about this gorgeous space on ELLE DECOR’s website. The July/August issue is on newsstands now.
