Are you familiar with Ina Garten? I find myself going into a trance while watching her videos. They’re so relaxing and….hedonistic. And so unlike my own life.
While hunting for a coconut cake recipe last month, I stumbled across her cooking shows on YouTube. She reminds me of a well-fed contented cat, a Cheshire cat serenely lapping cream from a bowl. And speaking of cream…..wow……she doesn’t skimp on butter, cream, full-fat cheeses or her signature coconut cake with cream cheese frosting. Ina Garten is an unabashed epicurean and I say bravo!
With her gorgeous house in The Hamptons, loving husband (they met when she was 15), successful cooking shows and 9 cookbooks (all bestsellers), Ina lives the good life. I wonder if her multitude of fans aren’t just a little jealous of the life she’s crafted for herself. (I know I am.)
Here she is in Paris –
