TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Valerie Bertinelli, who was born in Wilmington, shares her favorite Delaware recipes on her cooking show on The Food Network.

A new episode of Delaware native daughter Valerie Bertinelli’s hit Food Network Show, “Valerie’s Home Cooking,” devotes itself to the cuisine of her home state.

And the special guests on the California-filmed program have a recognizable name: Carney.  As in Governor John Carney’s brother Joe and sister-in-law Gail, who happens to Bertinelli’s cousin.

Joe and Gail Carney were guests on Valerie Bertinelli’s “Delaware Days” episode. Gail is Bertinelli’s cousin.

Both the Carney and Bertinelli clan were Claymont-raised, and in the “My Delaware Days” episode, the former “One Day at a Time” star waxed nostalgic about her upbringing in the middle-class suburb, reflecting fondly on special occasions spent at the old Farmer in the Dell restaurant, a legendary Philadelphia Pike staple (Bertinelli called it the “Pennsylvania Pike,” but she gets a break for that).

Check out the scene where Gail and Joe Carney show up for dinner on the set of “Valerie’s Home Cooking” on The Food Network: IMG_0629

The classic Delaware menu included steamed clams with spicy garlic bread, lump crab cakes (natch) with cocktail remoulade and sauteed spinach, homemade Kandy Kakes and even little take-home gifts of homemade apple butter.

“I really feel like I’m back home in Wilmington,” glowed Bertinelli, as she pulled the hot crab cakes from the oven. “I’m cooking coastal favorites from the place where my cousin and her husband live,” said Bertinelli, “and the place where I wish I still lived.” 

Door’s open!

If you missed the first airing, you can still catch the show on its next run Wednesday, Sept. 12, 10:30 am.
