Ina Garten’s Make-a-Wish offer: too little, too late

The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, has tried to make amends for twice snubbing a child from the Make-a-Wish foundation who wanted to meet Garten and cook a meal with her.  The little boy, whose name is Enzo, wanted to meet Garten because he has spent a lot of time watching her show while in the hospital.

Enzo was said to be very disappointed that Garten refused to meet him, but eventually he was told that he had to let it go and choose a different wish.  Now that he’s decided he wants to swim with dolphins instead, suddenly Garten, under extreme public pressure, has come back to say that she will meet with Enzo after all.  Enzo, however, now seems to have forgotten all about her, and is much more excited about learning to swim and getting in the water with the dolphins.
