Even Anthony Bourdain Is an Ina Garten Fan
Anthony Bourdain isn't one to shy away from feuding with his fellow celebrity chefs, but even he has a soft spot for Ina Garten.
In an interview with Refinery 29, the notably opinionated Parts Unknown star sounded off on everything from pumpkin spice to Dominque Ansel's Instagram-worthy sweets, but it's what he said about the Barefoot Contessa that really caught our attention.
When asked "if there are any major stars who he thinks gets it right," Bourdain paused, then responded, Ina Garten.
“I’ll make a little fun of her now and then, it’s very perfect in Ina World, scarily so,” he said, but “what she cooks on TV is legit and instructive. If you do as Ina does, chances are you are going to get a good product…I've got real respect for her.”
Honestly, who doesn't?
People magazine pointed out that this isn't the first time Bourdain has praised the longtime television cook.
"I love Ina Garten. She’s one of the few people on Food Network who can actually cook," he told Atlanta Magazine back in 2015.
"When Ina Garten roasts a chicken, she roasts it correctly. When Ina Garten makes mashed potatoes, those are some solid mashed potatoes. In many ways I want Ina’s life."
