Garten-CREDIT-Quentin-BaconIna 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.

In-SecretWant to win a pair of passes to an advance screening of the new movie In Secret?

Romantic thriller In Secret, set for February 21 release, stars Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange and is based on Emile Zola’s scandalous novel Thérèse Raquin. LD Entertainment financed it and Roadside made the deal just before the film’s Toronto premiere. Charlie Stratton made his directing debut, and Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon and William Horberg produced. Set in 1860s Paris, In Secret is a tale of obsessive love, adultery and revenge. Therese (Olsen) is a sexually repressed beautiful young woman trapped into a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin, Camille (Tom Felton), by her domineering aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange). Her husband’s friend (Isaac) catches her eye and things go all kinds of wrong from there.

Comments (2)

13-Evergreen-Web-300x250-STATIC-PlanetGet tickets for an immersive all-digital planetarium show: Cosmic Collisions, now playing through January 30, at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park. Narrated by Robert Redford, this immersive planetarium experience explores the full range of collisions, from subatomic particles to the largest galaxies.  Travel to the past, present, and future to witness the creation of our Moon, the meteorite impact that ended the Age of Dinosaurs, and a titanic merging of two galaxies billions of years from now.

Alternatively, see Dark Universe, beginning in the planetarium January 31. Everything we know about the Universe has changed: Galaxies are held together by a substance we can’t see, and a force strong enough to counteract gravity is at work in the dark in-betweens. Explore two of today’s greatest cosmic mysteries—dark matter and dark energy—in this vast, data-fueled starscape of beauty and wonder.

There's never been a better time to explore the world's only aquarium-planetarium-rainforest-living museum.

Win a pair of tickets to see David Garrett in San Jose

Add your comment

DavidGarrett_Photo1We have two pairs of tickets to give away for world-class violinist, David Garrett, who makes his City National Civic debut on January 21st in support of his latest release Music. Opening is special guest, master accordion player Martynas.

A former child prodigy of the classical world who signed to Deutsche Grammophon when he was only 13, he now provokes Garrett-mania among hordes of international fans with his spectacular fusions of rock and pop with symphonic or baroque traditions. To him, it's all music and all equally valid.

His work is often described as "crossover", but whatever it is, he believes that it "poses an even greater challenge than classical music does because you want to present things to your listeners in a completely new light while putting on a superb violinist's performance."
