Ina Garten, star of Food Network’s THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA, believes simplicity is the key to hosting a great dinner, and Thanksgiving is no different.

“Cooking is hard!” Garten He said In an interview with Coveteur. “I never worked in a restaurant, I never went to culinary school, and actually, I think that helped me write a cookbook because if a recipe was too complicated or time-consuming, I would never get around to it.” I would do it again, and I think others feel the same way.

Ironically, the best-selling cookbook author, known for her “friendly” recipes, has admitted that she is not a “confident cook”.

“In times of financial and political stress, there’s something about a hamburger and a Coke or a big bowl of beef stew that makes us feel better.” James Beard Award-winning television host described Recipes in the “Modern Comfort Food” cookbook released during the pandemic. “They are not fictional, quite the opposite.

Don’t you hate it when you dress up for Thanksgiving and then you have to carve that turkey in front of everyone?

In preparation for the holiday, Garten shared a series of recipes on Instagram for her followers to try for Thanksgiving feasts.
