When it comes to cooking, no chef is more relatable and down-to-earth than the Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten. Not only does she boast hundreds upon hundreds of approachable recipes, but she has also never been shy about admitting to using store-bought ingredients. (Her catchphrase is “store-bought is fine,” after all.) And among those ingredients are condiments, ranging from the more high-end, gourmet condiments to everyone’s favorite everyday condiment brands, like Heinz.
“I generally don’t use unusual ingredients that you’ll only use once,” Garten tells Bon Appetit. “There’s no point in having a recipe you can make in 30 minutes if you takes you two hours to shop for it.”
Garten makes shopping — and cooking — like her easier than ever, too. On her Barefoot Contessa website, she lists more than two dozen of her go-to ingredients. And within that list includes all the condiments she loves to cook with, which we’ve rounded up, ahead.
