The Stars of Mary Poppins Returns Cook with Ina
Tune in Sunday, Dec. 9, at 12:30|11:30c to see Emily Blunt, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Rob Marshall and John DeLuca share a whimsical lunch at Ina's home.
On the season finale of Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro, Ina throws an incredible Mary Poppins Returns reunion for the movie’s stars Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Hollywood director and producer duo Rob Marshall and John DeLuca. Ina shares cooking secrets with them and pulls together a British-style Sunday lunch with whimsical Mary Poppins-inspired décor.
First, Ina shows Emily how easy it is to make a foolproof Roasted Capon, while Emily shares her mother’s recipe for the crispiest roasted potatoes ever. “I can’t believe I’m cooking with Ina. It’s slightly surreal,” muses Emily.
Then, Ina gives Lin-Manuel Miranda a haricots verts master class. “I have no idea what those are,” Lin-Manuel confesses, “I thought it was like a type of font, like Comic Sans.” Meanwhile, Rob Marshall and John DeLuca mix up Pomegranate Gimlet cocktails for the group.
The five of them share a toast over the stunning table that Ina put together while enjoying her divine Meringue Clouds.
