There are a number of reasons — regularly planned as well as unforeseen — that right now is comfort food season.
But no matter why, rest assured that Ina Garten is ready for you.
Garten — also known as TV’s Barefoot Contessa — knew that Modern Comfort Food would come out right before the election, though she didn’t (of course) expect there to also be a pandemic.
Nevertheless, she told NPR, she’s grateful that she has something so mentally healthy, if not necessarily physically healthy, to offer the world during these times.
You can listen to Garten describe her method for updating cuisine, both in terms of rewriting beloved recipes and reorganizing group dining below or read a transcript on NPR’s website.
