Ina Garten Is So Cool She Doesn’t Even Watch Her Own Cooking Show

There probably isn’t a man, woman, or child alive that hasn’t seen at least one cooking show in their lifetime. Fine, that’s probably a gross exaggeration and millions of people around the world are obviously exempt from the BAM! of Emeril and the extra-Italian pronunciations from Giada. That said, I’m not one of those people. But in odd news, guess who is?

Like many of us, the last thing we want to do when we get home is the same thing we do for work all day, and Ina Garten is no exception. “I never watch cooking shows, certainly not mine,” Garten tells People in the new Food Faves issue. “I’m glad other people like it, that’s all I can say.”

But really, when you’re Ina Garten, you don’t exactly need to stay on top of the trends now, do you? All she needs is Jeffrey’s warm smile and her trips to the market to stop and pick up the freshest ingredients.

That said, we’re sure that she has to have been a fan of something back in the day. Can’t you just see her sitting down to some Frugal Gourmet or Jacques Pépin? Maybe some Julia Child!
