What’s Cooking? Ask Ina Garten!

The cover of Ina Garten's "Modern Comfort Food."

Coming up this weekend at BookHampton is a virtual session with Ina Garten and her new cookbook “Modern Comfort Food.” On Saturday, October 10, at 5 p.m., Garten will be in conversation with Lynn Sherr. All ticket holders will receive a signed copy of Garten’s cookbook, a collection of all-new soul-satisfying dishes from America’s favorite home cook.

In “Modern Comfort Food,” Garten shares 85 new recipes that will feed your deepest cravings. Many of these dishes are inspired by childhood favorites—  but with the volume turned way up, such as cheddar and chutney grilled cheese sandwiches (the perfect match for Ina’s Creamy Tomato Bisque), smashed hamburgers with caramelized onions and the crispiest hash browns that are actually made in a waffle iron.

There are few things more comforting than gathering for a meal with the ones you love, especially when dishes like cheesy chicken enchiladas are at the center of the table. Old-fashioned crowd pleasers like roasted sausages, peppers, and onions are even more delicious and streamlined for quick cleanup. For dessert? You’ll find the best Boston cream pie, banana rum trifle, and black and white cookies you’ll ever make. Home cooks can always count on Ina’s dependable, easy-to-follow instructions, with lots of side notes for cooking and entertaining — it’s like having Ina right there beside you, helping you all the way.

From cocktails to dessert, from special weekend breakfasts to quick weeknight dinners, you’ll find yourself making these cozy and delicious recipes over and over again.
