The Makeover of Matt Light
Great coverage in the kitchen
Utensils that really cook Even though Matt was trained to cook like a pro, he knew better than to call himself a "chef." But Matt did find a few stylish kitchen essentials that would make him appear like a true gourmet to his family and friends. Betsy took the New England Patriot right to HomeGoods' expanded Gourmet Kitchen department (in 21 Boston area locations), where he discovered an extensive selection of brand name, chef-quality cookware, gourmet bakeware, and European designed gadgets, all at amazing prices. Matt chose a set of professional quality stainless-steel pots ($14.99-$49.99) and a nest of three lightweight mixing bowls ($12.99) for whipping up blueberry pancakes. Eager to add fun accents to the couple's yellow kitchen, Betsy selected a set of imported, multi-colored rubber utensils ($3.99-$9.99) and some Italian, hand-painted floral canisters($4.99-$7.99). She threw in a classy corkscrew ($6.99) when Matt admitted that the one he used was on his keychain. For the HomeGoods near you, call 1-800-614-HOME.
