The Barefoot Contessa, a reality show?

oilMany of the shows on the Food Network are taped on sound stages in fake kitchens, but reality is key for Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa.  Her shows are taped in her actual kitchen in East Hampton, New York, with her real friends and colleagues.  When I watch the show, I get a feeling that I am getting a glimpse into this classy chef's life.  It makes me long for cultured friends who bring me beautiful bouquets and expensive olive oil.  I guess I'll just have to settle for friends who bring me homemade biscotti, which is almost as good. 

In today's episode at 5:00pm (4:00pm central), Ina stocks the fridge of one of her friends that is running an errand for her over the weekend.  She's making comfort food that will be easily heated for cooking-challenged beginners, like myself.  I'm looking forward to this one.  Hey Ina!  I'll do some errands in exchange for food, if you're available!
