Jennifer Garner Brings Her "Pretend Cooking Show" to Ina's Thanksgiving Special

Watch Jennifer prepare her grandmother's favorite side dish Saturday at 8|7c.

In 2015 Jennifer got the birthday gift of a lifetime when she and Ina cooked Swordfish Provencal and Parmesan Kale Chips at Jennifer's ranch in Los Angeles. For dessert, Ina made crunchy English Chocolate Crisps. Since then, the two have stayed in touch.

On Saturday they're back together as Jennifer joins Ina for her Thanksgiving special Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro - Thanksgiving Sides at 8|7c. Ina shows us how to make sides the star of the Thanksgiving table, while Jennifer whips up her grandmother's Sweet Potato Casserole in a special episode of her "Pretend Cooking Show." We can’t wait!
