According to ABC new Ida did refuse the little boy his wish to cook with her, but later she invited him to cook with her.


The Barefoot Contessa Turn Boy Down Twice

 

"Now, after multiple blogs and news outlets criticized her decision, Garten is inviting Enzo Pereda to the set of "The Barefoot Contessa."

"Ina became aware of Enzo's story this weekend and will be calling him today," a spokesperson for Garten said in a statement to ABCNews.com. "She looks forward to inviting him to spend some time with her at the Food Network studios."


So...your story has exactly the same conclusion as what I posted: Ina's team turned down the requests without consulting her, and when she found out about them, she invited him to cook with her. This was a definite non-story that TMZ turned into a nightmare for Ina; even the boy's family said it wasn't her fault.
