And Ina Garten is going to show us how, from cooking the perfect roast chicken, making gorgeous floral centerpieces, and if we’re lucky, dessert.

Here’s everything you need to know to stream Barefoot Contessa.

What is Barefoot Contessa?

Ina Garten began her formative professional life as an employee in the Office of Management and Budget in the Ford and Carter administrations. She purchased a specialty food store in Westhampton Beach, New York, called Barefoot Contessa, and operated the store until 1996 when she sold it to employees. After writing a best-seller cookbook and developing a popular website, Ina Garten landed a cooking show in 2002, which features her, her husband Jeffrey, their friends, and the many parties she throws.

Barefoot Contessa Reviews

What the critics are saying

  • “The series, which is named after Garten’s former high-end food market in New England, offers viewers a chance to learn how delicious, elegant meals can be created using fresh ingredients and simple techniques. She also demonstrates how complicated dishes — many of which originate in France — can be adapted to meet the needs and palates of the people cooking them. The show’s upscale Hampton, N.Y., setting — as well as the recipes it showcases — gives it a somewhat more cultured and refined tone than other Food Network series. Garten’s personality also seems rather reserved when compared to popular TV chefs like Rachael Ray and Paula Deen, which means she may be less of a winner with younger kids. But Garten’s frequent references to her happy marriage, as well as the stories she shares about her life and the role that food as has played in it, creates a pleasant viewing experience for cooking fans with a taste for the finer things.” –Melissa Camacho, Common Sense Media

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR.
