Ina Garten shares a Barefoot Contessa Thanksgiving for Two

Friends, I am still searching for inspiration for Thanksgiving this year. Here I share with you a fun video find where Ina Garten is testing the perfect Thanksgiving dinner for two.

In this video, Ina’s husband Jeffrey plays the taste tester while her friend Miguel is designs a tablescape where the dessert is also the decoration. The menu includes savory palmiers – puff pastry with sundried tomato pesto, golden Cornish Hens with cornbread stuffing, mashed turnips with yummy crispy shallots and sauteed broccolini. It’s a Thanksgiving party for two!

Thanksgiving is about family (and families of choice!) and friends. Ina gets that and in her book, Barefoot Contessa Family Style, she says:

Family … it’s about relationships … it’s about people who are bound together by love and a sense of being responsible for one another … it’s spouses with no children, like Jeffrey and me … it’s a group of women who meet to cook dinner together once a month … it’s a one-parent family with adopted children … it’s two men who’ve made a life together … at the end of the day, all we have is love … getting love, but even more, feeling love …

My bookclub is picking selections from Ina Garten‘s new cookbook, Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks, for our December potluck meeting. I need to get on that!

Let us hear from you!
