Ina inspires me to try new recipes! She initially inspired me to COOK! I learned by watching her, I have all of her cookbooks. She is My FAVORITE CHEF! 🙂
Ina inspires me to cook! I love watching her show and recreating her recipes at home. She never let’s me down; whenever I make one of her recipes it’s always a hit.
Watching Ina inspires me to be at ease in my kitchen – for me she’s the embodiment of simple, elegant ease & warmth, and that’s something that just feels good. She’s the one I channel to bring more grounded, present (in-the-moment) joy to the process, especially when I get to entertain.
