Everyone Should Own Ina Garten’s Cookbooks, According to Chrissy Teigen

We couldn't agree more, Chrissy!

October 12, 2018

Keep in mind: Price and stock could change after publish date, and we may make money from these links.

At this point, it might be safe to say that Chrissy Teigen has a bit of an Ina Garten obsession (can you blame her, though?). The Twitter queen has shared her devotion to the Barefoot Contessa many times. Need proof? Just click here, here and here. And, if that’s not enough, Chrissy just made her love official in an interview with First We Feast. When asked which cookbooks everyone should own, she said, “I think Ina makes a beautiful book. She is always one that I love.”

We're certainly not going to argue with that. Whether she’s planning an elaborate party or cooking for one, you can count on Ina to make a simple, delicious meal that’s full of flavor and quality ingredients. That’s why we took it upon ourselves to compile a list of all of Ina’s beautiful cookbooks. Keep reading to brush up on all 11 of them – they're full of the amazing recipes that we (and Chrissy) love!

Maple-Oatmeal Scones, anyone? Ina’s first book is full of classic, elegant and simple recipes – that’s why it still holds up nearly 20 years after it was first released.

This book might not be as great as attending one of Ina’s parties, but with recipes for make-your-own pizzas and her jaw-dropping Lemon Cake, it’s definitely the next best thing.

Nobody throws a get-together like Ina. Her third book is devoted to the homey, shareable recipes (like Lemon Shrimp Scampi 😍) that she loves to pass around a crowded table.

Say bonjour to French cooking with Ina’s fourth book! With recipes like Hearty Boeuf Bourguignon and Croque Monsieurs, Ina introduces readers across the world to classic Parisian dishes.

Ina is as synonymous with East Hampton as Bruce Springsteen is with New Jersey. In her fifth cookbook, the Barefoot Contessa dishes on her life in the Hamptons and the cozy recipes that she loves to make there.

If we had to pick just one Ina cookbook for the beginner chef, we’d choose this one. Ina focuses on techniques and tips in this handy book, but also includes recipes for essentials like Lobster Corn Chowder and Easy Sticky Buns.

Ina’s all about simple, delicious meals, and we couldn’t love them more. In this book, you can find recipes like Red Velvet Cupcakes and the Ultimate Grilled Cheese Sandwich – easy, helpful recipes that never disappoint.

Chrissy herself has highly recommended this particular book. If that’s not enough, Ina’s recipe for Salted Caramel Brownies should win you over in a heartbeat.

We know how important meal-prep is, and luckily, so does Ina. She filled this cookbook with tons of make-ahead recipes, from Chicken Pot Pies to an entire Thanksgiving turkey. Thank you, Ina!

Ina and Jeffrey are the ultimate #couplegoals. After being married for 48 years, it’s only natural that Ina would release a cookbook of her husband’s favorite recipes. We just can’t decide what we love more – their sweet relationship or Ina’s Apple Pie Bars.

Get ready – Ina’s 11th cookbook comes out this month! In Cook Like a Pro, Ina shares her tips for cooking, baking and decorating like a professional. Need we say more?
