Lifestyle Food Peek Inside the Houses of Food Network Stars Ina Garten, Jose Garces, Marcela Valladolid, and Masaharu Morimoto share intimate photos of the places they call home By Lexi Dwyer Published on October 9, 2014 11:30 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Trending Videos 01 of 09 MICHAEL SYMON David A. Land; Inset:Bennett Raglin/Getty The Food Network chef renovated a nearly century-old Tudor house in his hometown of Cleveland, where he has six restaurants. To bring the kitchen up to his exacting standards, Symon added a prep sink with a foot pedal, double-thick Carrara marble countertops and a six-burner BlueStar range, which he told Food Network Magazine was "the only home stove … that performs like a restaurant range." 02 of 09 INA GARTEN: NEW YORK CITY Beatriz da Costa/Food Network Magazine; Getty Ina Garten might be known for telegenic East Hampton home, but it turns out the Barefoot Contessa also has a camera-ready apartment in Manhattan that she stays in after a long day of meetings in the Big Apple. The space has elegant touches like high ceilings, original leaded windows, and this inviting sitting area. "I wanted it to feel like a refuge — a place for her to curl up and recharge," architect Daniel Romualdez says in the October issue of Food Network Magazine, noting that he used simple, low-profile furniture to give it a cozy vibe. 03 of 09 Beatriz da Costa/Food Network Magazine Garten's living room is divided into two distinct spaces separated by a stone fireplace: The sitting area (shown in the previous slide) and this office. One of Garten's most beloved pieces of furniture is this bookshelf by Belgian designer Axel Vervoordt. 04 of 09 MARCELLA VALLADOLID: SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Dave Lauridsen/Food Network Magazine The star of Mexican Made Easy and co-host of The Kitchen lives in a hilltop Cape-Cod-style house in Chula Vista, California, which is near San Diego. In her home, which dates to 1912, she's embraced a style she calls "Euro-Mexican," which is elegant and not the least bit stereotypical. "No serapes or sombreros. I wanted something more clean, crisp and subtle," she tells the magazine. 05 of 09 MARCELLA VALLADOLID: SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA Dave Lauridsen/Food Network Magazine Although a custom-built table and chairs are the stars of this airy dining room, which was once a patio, Valladolid says she rarely hosts sit-down meals. "I serve buffet or family style and scatter chairs all over," she says. 06 of 09 JOSE GARCES: THE PENNSYLVANIA COUNTRYSIDE Jason Varney/Food Network Magazine When he needs a break from overseeing his 18-restaurant empire, the Iron Chef leaves his home city of Philadelphia and brings his wife and three kids to this 1850 farmhouse" in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. "I wanted a real environmental contrast," Garces tells the magazine. Set on 40 acres of land, it includes many pieces of furniture that he's acquired from years of outfitting various restaurants. 07 of 09 JOSE GARCES: THE PENNSYLVANIA COUNTRYSIDE Jason Varney/Food Network Magazine In the ground floor dining room, a larger table was cut in half to make two smaller ones. Another cool custom touch: Traditional leather chairs were punched up with Ralph Lauren tweed fabric. "Now the house feels pretty complete," says Garces. "I'm just ready to enjoy it." 08 of 09 MASAHARU MORIMOTO: HONOLULU, HAWAII Linny Morris Morimoto had been shuttling back and forth to the 50th state overseeing two restaurant openings in Waikiki and Maui. He bought this apartment, which overlooks Honolulu's Manoa Valley, because he was tired of hotels. It was the first place he looked at and he was sold by that dramatic vista. "You could have an ocean view, but after 6 p.m. it's nothing," the Iron Chef tells the magazine. "The mountain view gives you something to look at all the time … Being here makes me happier." 09 of 09 MASAHARU MORIMOTO: HONOLULU, HAWAII Linny Morris/Food Network Magazine Talk about priorities: The chef had two of the apartment's three bedrooms torn out to create this large entertaining space, which includes a dining room and bar, right off the kitchen. "The condo is for me and my wife, we love to spend time at home and the kitchen and bar are much more important than an extra bedroom," he says. What's on a typical menu for the Iron Chef? Whatever happens to be fresh at his local seafood market.For more photos of the chef's home, check out the full feature at Food Network magazine.
