Ina Garten’s Go-To Brand of ‘Good Vanilla’ Is On Sale (and This Never Happens)
What Ina Garten says, we do. Wear oversize chambray? Cook a brisket that feeds eight, then serve it just to Jeffrey? Buy only “good” vanilla? Check, check and check. But Ina—and we say this out of love—that good vanilla is costing us an arm and a leg. (Thank you, worldwide vanilla shortage.)
Lucky for all of us Barefoot Contessa superfans (call us Ina’s Angels), the kitchen queen’s go-to brand of vanilla extract happens to be on sale. As part of Williams-Sonoma’s Cyber Monday deals, Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract is 20 percent off. An eight-ounce bottle would normally cost you $55 (yeesh!) but with the discount, it’s a slightly more palatable $44.
Yep, we know that’s still a pretty penny to pay for a single ingredient. But considering that aforementioned vanilla crisis, the extract hardly ever goes on sale. (Fun fact: It’s the second-most expensive spice after saffron.) And if you order it today, you’ll also get “free fast shipping,” which means you’ll be able to whip up a batch of holiday cookies in a matter of days.
And while you’re at it, Williams-Sonoma is also marking down a few of Ina’s other favorite tools, like this Cuisinart Elemental 13-Cup Food Processor, OXO Food Mill, Cuisipro 6 Sided Box Grater and Stainless-Steel Nesting Mixing Bowls Set, all of which are included in the store’s Buy More, Save More promotion. Just use the code SAVEMORE for up to 25 percent off (and free shipping, of course). As for ourselves, we’ll be stocking up on the brand’s popular holiday Peppermint Bark—a box for us and a box for Jeffrey.
Quick, someone text Ina and let her know about this sale.
