Ina Garten Day-Drinks With Taylor Swift, Talks About Boys
Food Network Magazine jumped on the 2012 Chefs as Rockstars trend a couple of years late, as is their wont, and dedicated the July/August issue to music, pairing Food Network chefs with their favorite musical artists. (We’re burying the lede here: the real story out of this issue is that Geoffrey Zakarian cooked with Ja Rule.)
Ina Garten was paired with Taylor Swift, which explains that Instagram from a few months ago, and for their story, Taylor, her mother Andrea, and her brother Austin visited Ina’s home in The Hamptons for a day (drinking) trip.
Together, they ate Pavlova and talked about boys. From E! Online:
Taylor and Ina baked a mustard-roasted fish in the oven and spread whipped cream on a Pavlova, all while bonding over their mutual frustration for people who don’t like to eat. “I’ll cook for these boys, and they’ll be like, ‘I’m on a diet,’” the country crossover artist said. “I’m like, ‘I can’t hang out with you.’”
Ina then shared a similar story in which a guest claimed she was on a cleanse before downing an entire whiskey sour—and then had the gall to ask for another! “Oh, I’ve never had a whiskey sour,” Taylor said.
As luck would have it, Ina had the ingredients on hand. “I have some in my refrigerator!” she told Taylor.
“Hey, Andrea,” the singer called. “Come over here. We’re day-drinking!”
What is this life.
