A treat in store for you

Angelo SurmelisNow don’t hate me for this, but last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Angelo Surmelis, host of HGTV’s “Rate My Space,” at his Los Angeles home.

You can see Angelo and his doggie Baxter in the photo above. I’m reflected in a mirror taking this picture, and I notice with some pride that I’m color coordinated with the hanging lamp.

The occasion for my visit was to look at Angelo’s hip new kitchen — and to do an interview about how he pulled it off — for my Pardon Our Dust series in the Los Angeles Times.

It’s one of the best economical kitchens I’ve seen yet.

It’s a shame I’d just eaten lunch when I arrived because Angelo offered me fresh fruit in a glass bowl, a lovely white layered cake (which he made!) in a really tall covered cake plate (which you can see in the photo), strong coffee and iced tea. I did partake of the latter two offerings.

We should see the full story in the paper in a couple of weeks. Like I said, don’t hate me, but do I have a fun job? Or what?

Actually, my photo is not all that good. See what Angelo really looks like here.

And by the way, what do you think of his new show?
