Join Ina Garten for a dazzling one-hour holiday special where she explores the London food scene. Then, inspired by her delicious discoveries, she conjures up incredible unmissable holiday meals and parties with a British twist back home in East Hampton.
Barefoot meets the silver screen in a Hollywood culinary and cooking adventure. Ina Garten's cooking with Jennifer Garner on her birthday at her Los Angeles home, she's hanging out with friends Wendy and Carnie Wilson, and she's visiting some of the coolest places, having a master class with chef royalty Wolfgang Puck at Spago and mixing up a cocktail at the Chateau Marmont. Then Hollywood comes to the Hamptons when Ina cooks California-style with glittering acting duo Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
It's Thanksgiving at the barn and Ina Garten's good friend and neighbor Bobby Flay is coming over. She's making a dazzling spread, perfect for the big day with her incomparable tips, strategies and fabulous recipes. Bobby's cooking up a storm with her in the kitchen, smoking the turkey, sharing his easy 11-layer potato gratin and whipping up a seasonal heartland chopped salad. Ina completes the fabulous feast with holiday-worthy orange honey-glazed carrots, sauteed Brussels sprouts and bread pudding with herbs and apples. Also on the menu are a spicy lemon ginger molasses cake, make-ahead cranberry sauce, and a fall sangria that's sure to get the party started!
It's the week before the holidays and Ina Garten and her husband, Jeffrey, are on a getaway in the Berkshires with friends, kicking off the festive season with a great winter weekend of snowy food and fun. Then, on Christmas Eve back in East Hampton, Ina's throwing a fabulous Berkshires-inspired lunch for friends, and the holiday magic happens with a festive midnight feast for two.
It's all about Americans in Paris as Ina Garten hits the French capital, visiting some of the city's finest restaurants helmed by American chefs. She begins by making pear clafoutis with Chicago-born Daniel Rose at his incredible restaurant Spring, then learns the secrets of Boston-bred Braden Perkins' sea bream ceviche at his place, Ellsworth. Next, she's making American classics – lobster rolls with a French twist with Gregory Marchand of Frenchie to Go and whiskey sours at the bar of the iconic Le Meurice hotel. Then, Ina whips up delicious pastrami tartines at Poilane Bakery and throws Jeffrey a surprise birthday party with a boat trip down the River Seine.
Ina Garten's favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal is the side dishes, and she's leaving no vegetable unturned for side dishes that will steal the spotlight at the big feast. There's everything from Mushroom and Leek Bread Pudding with Homemade Gravy and Cranberry Fruit Conserve to Haricots Verts with Dill and Hazelnuts. Then she shares tasty ideas for Sauteed Brussels Sprouts and Bacon, plus Celery Root and Apple Puree. Ina starts with Classic Mashed Potatoes and takes them in three new directions: Truffled Mashed Potatoes, Parmesan Mashed Potatoes and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. In the oven, a colorful Roasted Beet, Butternut Squash and Apple Salad bakes along with a make-ahead Root Vegetable Gratin. There are even some cool, side-inspired table setting ideas. Ina also asks friends to reveal their must-have Thanksgiving sides. For Nigella Lawson, its Red Cabbage with Pomegranate, and Chef Marcus Samuelsson has to have his Killer Collards. Ina's biggest fan, actress Jennifer Garner, makes her grandmother Exie Mae Garner's Sweet Potato Casserole in an episode of her "Pretend Cooking Show" shot especially for Ina.
