Bon Appétit does an occasional Q&A with actors about their food habits, and the latest is with Jennifer Garner.
We know Garner is one celebrity whose talk about food and cooking isn't just lip service. Well, OK, we don't know for sure; we don't visit her kitchen. But she's on Martha Stewart's show fairly frequently, always armed with specific baking questions for Martha and stories about cooking for her family. This does not seem like a woman who has a personal chef doing the dirty work for her.
So, what's in her refrigerator besides toasted wheat germ? A few other surprises...
There's also yeast and low-fat buttermilk. Hm. So Garner is a bread baker? A pancake maker?
She also notes that she has a cabinet full of chocolate, and that her favorite snack is cheese, crackers, and an apple (which sounds a lot like what President Obama eats).
Our favorite tidbit is that she usually makes dinner from cookbooks by Sara Foster or Giada De Laurentiis. Many of the tabloid shots we see of Garner show her shopping at the farmers' market, so it's not surprising that she'd be making simple, seasonal, comforting dinners at home.
