Rank #2: Ina Garten

This week’s guest is Ina Garten

In 1978, Ina Garten found herself working in the White House on nuclear energy policy and thinking, “There’s got to be more to life than this!” She saw an ad for a small food store for sale in a place she’d never been: the Hamptons at the end of Long Island. She and her husband drove up to investigate and made the owner an offer on the spot. Two months later she found herself the owner of Barefoot Contessa, a 400-sq. ft. specialty food store.

Twenty years later, Barefoot Contessa grew to a 3,000-square-foot food emporium where twenty cooks and bakers prepared the food. Twenty-five more employees worked in the store helping thousands of customers to choose breads, salads, dinners and baked goods to take home. In 1996, Ina sold the store to her employees. In 2003, the new owners of Barefoot Contessa decided to close their doors and go on to new adventures.

In 1999, Ina wrote her first book, The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, which was one of the best-selling cookbooks of the year. The book invites readers into her specialty food store and shares the recipes that made it such a success. In 2001, Ina followed with best-selling Barefoot Contessa Parties! in which she invites readers into her home and shares her ideas and recipes for having parties that are fun for all — including the host. Her follow-up cookbooks, Barefoot Contessa Family Style (2002), Barefoot in Paris (2004), Barefoot Contessa at Home (2006), Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics (2008), Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? (2010) and Barefoot Contessa Foolproof (2012) all continue her style of cooking with easy, delicious, and foolproof recipes that you can make at home.

In 2006, Ina and her business partner Frank Newbold started a successful line of Barefoot Contessa Pantry products, comprised of baking mixes and sauces developed from recipes in her cookbooks.

Ina has been a columnist for Martha Stewart Living magazine, O, the Oprah magazine and House Beautiful magazine.

Ina lives in East Hampton, N.Y., and Southport, Conn., with her husband Jeffrey, who is a professor at the Yale School of Management.

Ina currently hosts Barefoot Contessa on Food Network.

Melissa Hemsley and Anna Jones want you to eat happy. What does that mean? It’s cooking for yourself, not beating yourself up about what you eat, and indulging in seasonal produce.

Melissa’s is called Eat Happy and focuses on healthy food you can make in 30 minutes or less, and Anna’s is The Modern Cook’s Year, a collection of more than 250 vegetarian recipes. Be sure to check them out, get cooking, and don’t miss our chat (which we’re bringing to you unedited!). In the second half of our show, we talk to Jennifer Boggis and Ruby Grant of New Zealand’s Heilala Vanilla, the world's most awarded vanilla brand.

“My feeling is that we need, as a nation, a cooking lesson.  That’s the first thing, because our fast food culture has told us not to pay any attention, cooking is drudgery, go out and buy and order it in.  If we had any skills before we completely lost them.”

“We have to not believe that we can’t find the food… it’s really not true. There are farmers markets popping up all over the place and if you make the effort to go once or twice a week you can really provide the ingredients for cooking for a family.”
