Ina Garten/Barefoot Contessa

Ina Garten’s popular show on the Food Network actually got its name from her first gourmet food shop in the Hamptons.  Her emphasis is on food fit for entertaining, which Ina does with real flare.  She particularly enjoys to prepare French cooking after living for a brief stint in Paris.

Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa Family StyleIna is one smart cookie!  Prior to her years as a caterer and gourmet food store owner, she earned her MBA, was employed by the White House, and was writing nuclear policy papers for both President Ford and Carter’s administrations.  But through all that she always loved to entertain.  Entertaining was her relief from all the stress and responsibilities of her position.  She took a cue from how she felt and left her high-powered job to run “Barefoot Contessa”, a gourmet food shop in the Hamptons.  She later published numerous successful cookbooks, and now has a show on the Food Network, helping everyone cook and entertain with style.
