Barefoot Contessa At Home !!TOP!!


And about that kitchen? Well, it's rumored that the kitchen in the barn is almost identical to the kitchen in the main house. Maybe this makes it easier for Garten to feel at home when she's filming, and it could be why she seems so comfortable cooking for her many party guests and visitors on Barefoot Contessa.




Barefoot Contessa at Home



Actually, the meaning of the name is two-fold. Garten said on her own blog that Barefoot Contessa "was the original name of my specialty food store after a movie with Ava Gardner and Humphrey Bogart." The 1954 Joseph Mankiewicz film, starring Humphrey Bogart and Ava Gardner, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, and took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.


Ina Garten's Hamptons home has a fabulous, sprawling herb garden, and on her show she often picks fresh herbs to use in the dishes she's cooking. But while she often uses rosemary, parsley, chives, and dill, the one herb you'll never see her cook with on Barefoot Contessa is cilantro.


"It was really the beginning of when women were going back to work and they had jobs and families and they had enough on their plate and didn't have time to make dinner," she said. "So they were starting to buy dinner to make at home."


The "Barefoot Contessa" star has become beloved for her foolproof dishes that are accessible to home chefs at any skill level. And Garten credits this with the fact that she always tests out her dishes with an inexperienced cook.


Ina Garten has impeccable taste. A known advocate of quality ingredients (only good vanilla, obviously), the Food Network superstar has taught numerous home cooks to whip up impressive dishes with her accessible but elevated recipes.


As for the recipe itself, I had Armagnac so that is the brandy I used and I had homemade chicken stock on hand so I skipped the chicken bouillon cube because the stock was already very flavorful. In terms of the cooking time for the pot roast, once everything was in the slow cooker, I did mine for 6 hours on the high setting. It was perfectly cooked and very, very tender at this point. Seasoning the meat at the beginning, then again seasoning the veggies in beginning, and then seasoning the tomato mixture in the slow cooker itself made for a perfect level of saltiness.


I accidentally bought raw cashews at the store and was looking for a tasty way to remedy my error. This fit the bill perfectly. I had all the ingredients at home. I simply toasted the cashews for about 7 to 8 extra minutes before adding them to the herb and spice mixture.


SAGAL: Here's your first question. There are, of course, a lot of specialty shoes. Which of these might you really be able to slip onto your own feet - A, Ski Walkers, shoes that sprout skis when you want to get down a snowy hill quickly; B, Phone Holder shoes, which can hold your smartphone in the toe so you can just look at your feet and enjoy some YouTube; or C, No Place Like Home shoes, you click your heels together three times and a GPS unit guides you home?


The couple soon relocated to Fort Bragg, North Carolina, where Ina began to dabble in cooking and entertaining in order to occupy her time while Jeffrey served a four year military tour during the Vietnam War. During this time, Ina acquired her pilot's certificate. After Jeffrey's time in the military was up, the couple went on a four month camping vacation in France, which sparked her love for French cuisine, open-air markets, and produce stands. Upon their return back to the States they moved to Washington D.C. in 1972, where dinner parties turned into a weekly tradition. During this time, Garten worked at the White House while earning an MBA at George Washington University. Originally employed as a government aide, she climbed the ladder to the position of budget analyst which entailed writing the nuclear energy budget and policy papers for presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. During this time, Garten began flipping homes for profit, and the sales gave them her the means to make her first big purchase, The Barefoot Contessa Speciality Store.


Ina's husband Jeffrey Garten was the dean of the Yale School of Management from 1995-2005. He is frequently seen on her cooking show, assisting with tasks or sampling dishes she has created. The family divides their time between Manhattan, East Hampton, and Paris. She paid $4.6 million for their Upper East Side NYC apartment in 2016. Her East Hampton home, which sits on a nearly 40,000 square-foot lot is worth at least $10 million.


Please note that this can be used in a variety of contexts. Finish a beef bourguignon served over homemade sourdough crostini? How easy was that! Slice some store bought (oh the horror) mozzarella and tomato for Caprese salad? Equally as simple, apparently.


\"As we were arriving home from the hospital I got word from 'Make A Wish' that it is has been officially confirmed that Ina Garten (the 'Barefoot Contessa') has declined Enzo's wish to meet her and cook a meal with her,\" she wrote.


While Garten's initial refusal may have been an oversight, it was also a bad publicity move. She's gushed about doing charity events in the past. In 2009, she opened up her home for the East Hampton Historical Society, saying she always says yes to the organization \"because I think what separates East Hampton from any other town is the history here.\"
