Everyone’s favorite Hamptons hostess is back—and this time arm-in-arm with her main man, Jeffrey. In Cooking for Jeffrey Ina Garten collects recipes for her “most constant and appreciative audience”, and as usual, they’re as timeless as one of her crisp white shirts. Alongside Ina’s perma-classics are sweet memories of her relationship with Jeffrey—from their disastrous first date to his support of her crazy decision to open a specialty food store with no experience to their European travels.
Our fantasy Ina meal from her new book: Limoncello Vodka Collins and Fried Oysters with Lemon Saffron Aioli (served in the garden), Cider-Roasted Pork Tenderloins with Roasted Plum Chutney, Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes, and Roasted Taratouille with Polenta (seated at a hydrangea-laden table in the farmhouse), and Prune Armagnac Clafouti to finish things off.
Get the recipe for Ina's Devil's Food Cake from the new book here. It's one of Jeffrey's favorites!
