The Surprising Fast Food Julia Child and Ina Garten Both Love

Turns out this west coast chain is good enough for the greats.

While the Barefoot Contessa may be cooking royalty (her recipe even reportedly inspired the latest royal proposal), Ina Garten is remarkably humble. The master chef has never seen her own show and has a penchant for the common dining option: In-N-Out Burger.

That's right. The Barefoot Contessa herself admitted in an interview with Today that while she has a rule about not eating fast food, she does make one exception: "When we’re in California doing book tours, we always have to go to In-N-Out burger," she says.

We imagine that the Queen of roast chicken orders at a drive-thru as masterfully as she frosts a cake.

Of course, Garten doesn't justify her guilty pleasure as a junk-food exception, but rather as an homage to one of her culinary idols: "I know it was Julia Child’s favorite too, so it’s okay," she says.

If it's good enough for Julia and Ina, then it's good enough for us too.
