Call on Ina if you need a simple, easy, and accessible solution for a delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, drink, or dessert. She’s also a massive vibe, inspiring the likes of the Coastal Grandmother movement and the dreamy culinary scenes that have become one and the same with Nancy Meyers movies. With thirteen cookbooks to her name (her latest being Go-To Dinners in 2022), along with millions of loyal fans on social media, Ina is widely regarded as one of America’s favorite recipe developers. From a perfect savory happy hour snack to a bougie chicken in a pot with orzo to a crispy-gooey brownie pudding, everyone on the Kitchn team has a personal Ina Garten fave.
Here, now, are just some (and really, after years of covering her, we’ve just scratched the surface!) of Ina Garten’s iconic and unsung dishes we’ve either published as formal recipes or written lovingly about to encourage you to make them.
