If there’s one thing we love, it’s relaxing with a cup of coffee while watching reruns of The Barefoot Contessa and Cook Like a Pro starring our hero, Ina Garten. We have tons of Ina Garten cookbooks, we’re obsessed with her Instagram, and we’ve tried all of her chocolate recipes, but we’re always craving more. So when we heard that there’s a new Ina Garten show on Food Network coming out on March 26, we got seriously excited.
More from SheKnows
Garten’s new show is called Be My Guest, and superfans will be super excited to learn about the format, which basically gives you three doses of the Barefoot Contessa a week. An hour-long version of Be My Guest will air each week on Discovery+, while a thirty minute version will appear on Food Network. Even better? There will also be a Be My Guest podcast that you can listen to along with watching the show.
Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks
The new show will basically be an expansion of the segment on the original Barefoot Contessa show where Garten talks about the guests visiting her Hamptons home, and when we get to see the guests enjoying her food. This time around, we’ll get to see Garten acting as a host and interviewer to guests like Julianna Margulies as they spend a day dining together, traveling around town, and getting to know one another better. It sounds like the television version of pure comfort food, and we can’t wait to eat it right up.
So, what to do while you’re waiting for March 26 to roll around so you can watch the new Ina Garten TV show? You can always pass the time by trying a few recipes from her latest cookbook, Modern Comfort Food, and by practicing hosting some conversational dinner parties of your own – Garten would definitely approve.
