    Foods Ina Garten Refuses To Eat

    From Woman’s Day Ina Garten may be a Food Network legend who loves cooking for Jeffrey and hosting dinner parties at her Hamptons home, but she’s also a lot more like you and me than you’d think. In fact, in a recent interview with Time, the Food Network star confessed to four foods she will never touch. But she also revealed her favorite boozy drink, and the one recipe that’s been tripping her up. Yes, even the Barefoot Contessa has trouble in the kitchen sometimes. You won’t find cilantro in Garten’s vegetable or herb gardens. “I just won’t go

    Free Range on Food: A fresh crop of Instant Pot cookbooks, Ina Garten and her new book, this week’s recipes and more.

    Congratulations! Are you in the DC area? If so, I respectfully submit that a) your bird doesn’t have to come from WF and b) you have other recipe options!    Over the years, I most often buy Maple Lawn Farm free-range birds, which are available at Harris Teeter,  MOM’s and David’s Natural Market and topped a Post taste test years ago. They are reliable, locally grown (Fulton MD) and sold at some farmers markets too.   Re the recipe: We’ll be publishing new and Voraciously-friendly, not quite traditional turkey recipes v soon, but this oh-so-simple recipe from butcher Pam Ginsburg is

    Ina Garten Reveals the Most Amazing Food App She Uses All the Time

    We love cooking almost as much as we love eating (almost) but meal planning is another entity entirely. It’s hard to make the time to sit down to plan out what we’re eating in the next week, and there are nights when it’s just easier to pop a frozen meal from Trader Joe’s into the microwave than to pore over various blogs, Instagram posts, and magazines trying to find inspiration. But there is an easier way to find quality recipes, and if anyone would know about it, it’s Ina Garten. When she’s looking for a recipe, she has a

    Ina Garten shares recipes and tips for a memorable holiday micro-meal, cocktail included

    The more the merrier? Not amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Fewer people are gathering around the table for the holidays due to social distancing and sheltering in place guidelines. But small parties can still be special – just ask Ina Garten. Last month, the cookbook author and Food Network host, known to fans as the Barefoot Contessa, embraced a #MicroThanksgiving, a scaled down celebration as a result of the pandemic. She made an 8-lb. turkey, which she paired with sides like herb and apple bread pudding and chipotle smashed sweet potatoes. Those who follow Garten would not be surprised

    Ina Garten and Anderson Cooper both love this easy comfort food

    Ina Garten literally wrote the book on comfort food. Her newest cookbook, “Modern Comfort Food,” has fast become our go-to, and its warm and hearty recipes have never been more needed. In a recent interview, Garten caught up with CNN’s Anderson Cooper during his show, “Full Circle,” and talked about all things food. And during their conversation, the two realized they share a love of one traditional — and, for many of us, nostalgic — comfort food: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It’s a classic food many of us grew up eating on the daily, and

    Ina Garten shares her favorite shortbread cookie recipes

    The Conversation Confederate Christmas ornaments are smaller than statues – but they send the same racist message As Christmas approaches, many families undertake a familiar ritual: an annual sojourn to the attic, basement or closet to pull out a box of treasured ornaments bought, created and collected over years, even generations. Hanging these ornaments on the tree is an opportunity to reconnect with memories of personal milestones, holiday icons and, in many cases, destinations visited. But, I argue, it may be time to take some of these old travel keepsakes off the tree. In researching my 2019 book, “Confederate Exceptionalism,”

    Ina Garten is hosting a ‘Micro Thanksgiving’ this year

    Thanksgiving is nothing without the side dishes and Ina Garten has all the vegetable side recipes small-scale Thanksgiving might require. The meal plan she’s sharing post-by-post on Instagram starts with Haricots Verts with Hazelnuts and Dill. The haricots verts (aka French string beans) are blanched and sauteed in butter before being topped with roasted hazelnuts and fragrant dill (per Food Network). Sounds like things are off to a good start, right? Next, Ina moves on to a little sweet heat with Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes. In her post, Garten says, “It’s a classic but with a chipotle and
