Praise Queen Ina Garten and Her New Show ‘Cook Like a Pro,’ aka Elegant Cooking for Dummies
The time has come to fulfill your kitchen goddess destiny. Ina Garten's new show, Barefoot Contessa: Cook Like a Pro, premieres this Sunday, May 28.
After 24 seasons of serving up foolproof recipes and effortlessly elegant dinner parties on the Barefoot Contessa, Garten is feeding our cooking obsession with an entirely new concept. Queen Ina is pivoting her focus to bestow upon us her flawless techniques to cook with confidence.
“I really wanted to do all those little things I’ve learned professionally over the years that will make people feel like they can cook with confidence,” Garten told People. “It’s recipe-based but, it’s really much more about the tips, which are woven throughout the episode.”
Garten says the show will offer pointers such as how to avoid turning your kitchen into a vegetable blizzard when chopping cauliflower. Cook Like a Pro will also host celebrity guest chefs like Mario Batali and José Andrés, who will lend their expertise and offer ways to enhance or simplify a dish.
The Contessa is making roast chicken with radishes, chicken and spinach Waldorf salad and truffled chicken liver mousse on her first episode of Cook Like a Pro, airing May 28 at 11 a.m. ET on Food Network.
Optimistically looking at you, Thanksgiving 2017. We won’t talk about last year’s
feast disaster. *
