Barefoot Contessa

Maybe its me. The picture of feet or a bare foot is not something I associate with anything positive. I'll say it. I hate feet. THERE! I feel better now.

Anyhew, associating anything foodie, with the name "barefoot" in it really makes me stay away. Far far away. Its like saying "I just Picked My Nose Contessa"

Am I the only one that feels that way?

I'd never thought about it. I think there was a movie or book or something long ago called the Barefoot Contessa. I just thought perhaps she took the name from there. The way she pads about, she could be barefoot sometimes. I love her cooking - simple but elegant. BTW, most of the time I'm barefoot when I'm cooking - or at least in sockfeet.

I too love here cooking Licia. Sorry Sush but I never associated that with the name. I just thought it reflected how down to earth she was but with an elegant twist. I love the name myself.....but then again I don't have a foot phobia :)

You're right licia - she did take that name from the movie - I think it was the name of her shop. I like bare feet. I hardly ever wear shoes in the house - I like the feel of the seagrass rug, the Oriental rug, the hardwood - I even like to walk across gravel (as long as it's not too small) in my bare feet.

Julio Iglesias had a CD out along time ago called Crazy - love his bare feet!

Hey Sush! I bet if she had red hair you would overlook the foot thing

Me too Kitch.....thats one of the things I'm looking forward too with Spring/Summer coming. But then again the grass and barefoot thing may not be such a wise idea around here since we're getting a dog..

Now theres an image for you Sush..........dog poop and bare feet.

DS, it is just a name. It is not like she cooks with her feet.
