They have two adorable girls; Gabriele cooks simple Tuscan like his Grandmother; Debi would like to develop more healthy beauty products in the future.  I mention their olive oil in my post Olive Oil Beauty Products.  They also support the Under the Tuscan Gun blogspot in addition to their The Extra Virgin cooking show on the Cooking Channel.  They recently renewed their wedding vows in Tuscany.
On one show, Gabriele wanted to have chickens in his back yard (Los Angeles) in order to have the freshest eggs possible for cooking.  Since this photo taken above, they've moved to a larger home.


The International Academy of Gastronomy in Paris has awarded Massimo Bottura the title of Best Chef of the Year. Massimo has received several awards in Italy and around the world, but this prize recognizes his work with modern Italian cuisine.  Look for him on future shows.
