Ina Garten Answers Tina Fey’s 3 Important Food Questions

Yesterday Ina Garten’s 10th cookbook, Cooking for Jeffrey, was released into the world. If you couldn’t guess by the title, the entire cookbook is basically one big love letter to her husband Jeffrey, who she met at the age of 16. The whole thing is filled with old photos of Ina and Jeffrey, recipes that Jeffrey loves, and little stories about their relationship. We featured a few of the recipes from the cookbook last week, and I’m itching to get into the kitchen and try basically everything.

Last night to honor the launch of Cooking for Jeffrey, the Brooklyn Academy of Music held a special conversation between Ina Garten and Tina Fey. Towards the end of the talk, Tina Fey asked Ina Garten three important food questions, which apparently she always asks when she’s bored with her kids, or when there is downtime on set with her colleagues. Here are the questions, along with Ina’s brilliant answers.

(Please note that I’m paraphrasing what Tina Fey and Ina Garten said during the talk.)
