Instead of demi-glaces, Bouillabaisses, and the like, Garten keeps her dishes a little less complicated. She told Food & Wine, “I like to make really simple, absolutely delicious food that takes a couple hours to make, and I’m not crying and exhausted and sweating.” Same, TBH. The Barefoot Contessa even revealed one of her secret weapons for “simple, absolutely delicious food.” Sheet pans. The cookbook author explained, “I have a stack of sheet pans. A lot of people have one. I have eight.” With sheet pan shortcuts and a ban on complex recipes, Ina Garten’s “How easy is that?” catch phrase clearly stuck for a reason.
