I have gotten into cooking a lot in the past few years, and I love watching cooking shows. My absolute two favorite shows to watch are Giada at Home and Barefoot Contessa. Besides loving to get new ideas and tips about cooking, I dream that I'm in their kitchens myself. Ina's (barefoot) "barn" as they call it is so beautiful. She used to film in her home, but decided she needed to have a separate space so they built this barn. This is not a barn. This is a dream home in the Hampton's. If this is what people are talking about when they refer to barns then I'll gladly move into one any day!
