“Barefoot Contessa” Ina Garden Talks Food and Life at the Grand

The Food Network star shares her secrets with audience members on Feb. 19.

Ina Garten was a nuclear policy analyst for the White
House when she made a big mid-life change by
opening a gourmet foods store, Barefoot Contessa,
which she has parlayed into a career as an author of
cookbooks, magazine articles and, most recently, the
popular Food Network show “Barefoot Contessa.” She’ll
visit The Grand Opera House in Wilmington on Feb. 19
to talk about food and life with The News Journal food
writer Patricia Talorico, and you’re welcome to ring in.
