Thanks to Ina, I discovered the joy of lentils. She also helped me get over my aversion to cooking salmon (that’s another post, but let’s just say I took a three-year hiatus, which seems so silly now). Needless to say, we’re big Barefoot Contessa fans in this household. There isn’t a dish of hers we haven’t tried to duplicate at home that didn’t meet big grins and second helpings.
And now, she’s bringing her informative style, helpful tips and approachable cooking know-how to town. Sorry, Hamptons and Jeffrey not included.
Ina will be in town on March 12 at the State Theatre. The night is billed as a conversation with Ina Garten and is hosted by our own best-selling author, and all-around good guy, Michael Ruhlman. There will even be an interactive Q&A with the duo after the show.
Want to bring Ina home to your kitchen and have the benefit of cooking and learning alongside her? Now’s your chance – sorta. While it’s not the real thing, Ina has graciously agreed to giveaway a signed copy of her new cookbook, Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes you can Trust, made out to one of you. For your chance to win, just leave a comment to this post between now and Tuesday morning sharing your favorite Ina Garten recipe (sorry, Facebook doesn’t count).
Good luck, and hope to see you Tuesday!
