On Saturday, September 1, Lee and her TV producer boyfriend Ryan Biegel tied the knot in front of family and friends, according to PEOPLE.

The pretty chef, 36, and Biegel vacationed in Capri, Italy before their wedding.

Lee went on to be a judge on Iron Chef America in 2007, write cookbooks, and appear on the Food Network.

The West Virginia native met Joel at the rooftop bar at The Peninsula hotel while visiting New York City for a weekend.

They wed in 2004, but split in 2009.

This March, Lee and Biegel announced their engagement. He had popped the question while they were vacationing in Paris.

Lee told PEOPLE it was a romantic proposal: "We were going out to dinner to one of my favorite restaurants, and I thought that it was coming. We're on the trip, like I kind of thought, 'Listen we're in Paris and we're taking the Orient Express to Venice. If he doesn't propose on this trip, he'll really miss a great opportunity.'"

Biegel did ask her to marry her on the vacation, and Lee revealed after she said "yes," they went to dinner and "gorged" on chicken and duck fat potatoes.

She has said they both love food, natch!

Lee added, "We really have fun together and aside from all the love stuff, we really like each other."

Lee said their wedding would include lots of good food and wine.
