Full Episode Guide
  • Inspired by foodie haunts visited in Paris, Ina has a day of eating French. From the French bistros there's French Country Omelet for breakfast, Veal Chops With Roquefort Butter and delicious Potato Basil Puree. Jeffrey is sent on a mission for French bread and dessert. Then French gets an easy makeover in Ask Ina.

  • Ina makes dinner to celebrate the arrival of her friend's newborn son. There's a delicious nursery food menu and an incredible setting to match. There's Truffle Popcorn with drinks followed by Spicy Turkey Meatballs, Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp and S'mores around the fire pit. The whole meal is served outside under incredible garden lights designed by Ina's friend Greg Yale, who is transforming the garden into a fantastic lighting grotto for the occasion.

  • Ina embarks on a day of experimentation and tests out some classic, comforting recipes on her colleagues. First up are her Strawberry Scones which she reworks with two new ingredients, then a hearty Wild Mushroom Lasagna, inspired by produce found at her local organic mushroom farm, followed by a simplified Shrimp Bisque, with all the wow factor but half the effort.

  • It's all about learning from New York's food greats today. After a Smoked Salmon and Bagel masterclass at a legendary Jewish store, a lesson in steak from a legendary butcher and the scoop on an amazing coffee roastery in Queens, it's back home for Grilled Double New York Strip With Spice Rub, Garten Spice Sweet Potato Fries and Coffee Granita.

  • Dinner on day one of Ina and Jeffrey's California trip is Chicken With Wild Mushrooms and Green Salad and Napa Vinaigrette. The fun continues with an invitation to cook Baked Goat Cheese at Sinskey's Vineyard. Then, it's a casual Napa-style supper with Jeffrey's Grilled Pork Chops served with Green Beans Gremolata.

  • It's back to basics on bread. Ina's friend is writing an article about interesting ways to use bread so Ina's volunteered to test out three recipes which all use bread in different ways. The contenders are; delicious Salmon Cakes that use white breadcrumbs, a bubbling Golden Bread Pudding With Italian Panettone and a great hearty tomato soup: Pappa al Pomodoro that has bread both in and on it.

  • Ina unleashes flour power and reveals her bread secrets. There's Honey White Bread, the perfect basic loaf everyone needs in their repertoire plus tips from master baker Amy Scherber from Amy's Bread in New York. Then, the humble sandwich reaches new heights in an incredible open Tuna and Hummus Sandwich. Finally, Ina gets creative with crumbs and creates delicious Mussels With Basil Breadcrumbs. And it's all you need to know on bread and baking in Ask Ina.

  • This is all about comfort food as Ina cooks up modern day comfort classics. Helping her is New York caterer Mary Giuliani, famous for her miniature grilled cheese sandwich canapes plus there's French Toast Bread Pudding and Seafood Pot Pie. This is comfort for breakfast, dinner and entertaining.
