“What was up with that cake?,” she added. The two are standing behind a huge three-layer cake adorned with flowers and a wedding topper.
The photo is from their 1968 wedding, held at Garten’s parents house in Connecticut. The year they married, Garten was just 20 and her husband was 22.
The couple, who live in East Hampton, N.Y., are a hit on Garten’s show. Jeffrey, a teacher and a businessman, often makes appearances on “Barefoot Contessa.”
One of Garten’s many cookbooks is titled “Cooking for Jeffrey,” which is filled with his favorite recipes and also includes stories about their life together.
