Ina Garten, the "Barefoot Contessa," is appearing in conversation at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa on Wednesday, April 2. Onstage, she delivers a charming insider’s view of her world and the pleasures of good food, cooked with love and passion. Enjoy an interactive Q&A with Ina after the show.
Ina Garten’s “The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook” was one of the best-selling cookbooks of its publication year. She has since gone on to write a number of phenomenally successful cookbooks, including 2010’s instant best-seller “How Easy is That?” Garten has also been a columnist at “House Beautiful,” “Martha Stewart Living,” and “O,” the Oprah magazine. Her latest book is “Foolproof.”
In 2002, Food Network approached Garten to do a cooking show based on her cookbooks and her love of entertaining. She was reluctant but decided to challenge herself to do 13 shows. Today her Emmy-winning cooking show, “Barefoot Contessa,” is one of the highest rated shows on Food Network.
