Worcester, MA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
As part of the UMass Medical School Distinguished Speaker Series, the bestselling cookbook author and star of Food Network’s Barefoot Contessa is coming to The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts in Worcester on Wednesday, March 27 at 7:30pm. Ina Garten will discuss her natural approach to food; sharing tips, stories, and maybe even some recipes. On stage, Garten delivers a charming insider’s view of the world of the Barefoot Contessa and the pleasures of good food, cooked with love and passion and engages the audience with an interactive Q&A.
Garten opened up a store in the Hamptons called Barefoot Contessa in 1978. Eighteen years later, the store had grown to a 3,000 sq. ft. store, which she sold to start working on her cookbooks. “The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook” was published in 1999 and was one of the bestselling cookbooks of the year. She has gone on to write seven more cookbooks, including “Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust,” coming out in October. In addition, Garten has contributed to “House Beautiful,” “Martha Stewart Living,” and “O,” Oprah’s magazine.
In 2002, Food Network approached Garten to do a cooking show based on her cookbooks and love of entertaining. That was ten years ago and her Emmy-winning cooking show, “Barefoot Contessa,” is still one of the highest rated shows on Food Network.
