Ina Garten Recommends Three Kitchen Tools for Perfecting Recipes
The Barefoot Contessa is a book by Ina Garten. Her cooking philosophy is based on basic recipes that she always exclaims, “How easy is that?” That doesn’t mean the Food Network star isn’t delving into the specifics. Garten uses three kitchen gadgets to ensure that her recipes are always correct.
Ina Garten says she uses a ruler “about every time” she cooks.
Ina Garten once revealed the kitchen’s “Most Overrated Tool.”
The Barefoot Contessa follows recipes to the letter. Whether it’s a recipe from one of her favorite cookbooks or something she created herself, she doesn’t miss a single step. Is there someone there to assist her in following every instruction to the letter? A ruler is a tool that is used to measure something. In her kitchen, the Barefoot Contessa host holds a ruler. She not only uses it all the time, but she also thinks it’s a perfect Christmas present.
Garten praised a few kitchen gadgets for helping her perfect recipes during an appearance on the Allrecipes podcast, Homemade, in December 2020, according to Eating Well. They not only make dishes look less homemade and more professional, but they also give home cooks more faith in the kitchen, according to her.
Garten’s first invention? A ruler “so that when you’re calculating the pot size or the pan size — I can’t tell you how many times I end up taking the ruler out when I make a recipe.” I also have a 24-inch ruler that I got from a drafting store.”
To make food look a bit more professional, Ina Garten uses a scale.
‘They’re better at room temperature,’ says Ina Garten, who never keeps these four ingredients in the fridge.
Garten suggests a “food scale” as the second kitchen instrument.
“I’m still weighing items that say a pound, but I’ve got a three-pound bag of it,” she says. As a result, I don’t… This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
