We have lots of culinary heroes here at SheKnows. There are tons of chefs we admire and adore but there is one woman in particular who has become somewhat of an icon to our staff: Ina Garten. Whether it’s bread making, cocktails, dinner ideas or desserts, she is the chef we always turn to when we need a little recipe inspo.
We love Ina’s authenticity, her love of really good ingredients, the incredible relationship she has with her husband, Jeffrey and the comforting meals she’s been helping us create with our families for years. Lately, she’s been helping us get through these stressful times by not only providing recipes to make with all the pantry staples we stocked up on, but by providing a bit of light-hearted and much-needed comedic relief on her Instagram account. Just today she posted a how-to video for an oversized cocktail and the entire thing is a huge quarantine mood.
If you love Ina just as much as we do and could use a little help planning your meals for the next few weeks, we asked some of our staff members to share their favorite Ina Garten recipes and tell us a little bit about why they love it so much.
