For some home cooks, there are Ina Garten recipes … and then there are everyone else’s recipes. Are you with us? If so, know that something absolutely delightful is on the horizon. Not only is the Barefoot Contessa releasing a brilliant new cookbook, Modern Comfort Food, on October 6th, but when you preorder the book, you’ll have access to a download of all the recipes from Ina’s previous 11 cookbooks!
Too good to be true? Almost! It actually gets even better: When you buy the book, you can also sign up for Ina’s super-special book tour with her fans (and past cooking buddies!) Jen Garner and Katie Couric.
On October 20th, Ina will be chatting with Jen Garner, revealing behind-the-scenes stories of filming her award-winning television show, writing her best-selling cookbooks, and enjoying food with family and friends at her home in the Hamptons. Jen and Ina have cooked together before, in L.A., cooking swordfish and sweet potato casserole for a Thanksgiving special of Ina’s Food Network show.
On November 11th, Ina catches up with another household name, Katie Couric. They made a gorgeous fig and ricotta cake together for Katie’s show “Getting There,” and this time the famous reporter will get to dig for secrets about Ina’s new book.
Speaking of which, as the best-selling author writes in that new book, “Food has an almost magical ability to comfort us, soothe us, and bring us together in so many ways.” This new book features a full 85 sure-to-be-classic Ina recipes that are not only nourishing but also emotionally satisfying. Think: Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Fresh Crab Nachos, Creamy Tomato Bisque, Cheddar & Chutney Grilled Cheese, Smashed Hamburgers with Carmelized Onions, Baked Rigatoni with Lamb Ragu, Seared Salmon with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli, Roasted Broccolini with Cheddar, Fresh Corn Polenta, Black & White Cookies, and Waffle Iron Hashbrowns.
Modern Comfort Food is a return to our soul satisfying favorites, foods that make us feel safe and looked-after. With Ina’s elevated additions and modern twists, this is a new collection of foolproof recipes we will return to again and again.
