On her show, she's making an apple tart for Jeffrey and gets to the part with the apricot glaze. She puts two tablespoons of Calvados in it, condescendingly explaining what it is to her audience. Then she says "if you don't have a bottle of Calvados, don't go out and buy one just for this".
THEN, she spends the rest of the show talking about how great the Calvados is. "Wow, you can really smell the Calvados in the glaze". "Mmmm, you can smell the Calvados when it hits the heat of the apples".
The kicker is "The Calvados also helps preserve the apples and keep them moist". OK bitch, so what you're saying is that even though the Calvados makes the fucking recipe, us plebes shouldn't bother going to buy some.
ps, where does she get those MASSIVE shirts?
Fuck her and her Calvado - it's brandy for christ sake!
The Christian Brothers V.S.O.P. is pretty good stuff too.

So this is what she says now right after ripping a big one? She used to blame it on the dog.
Well, Calvados IS rather expensive...
[quote] where does she get those MASSIVE shirts
They are called shents -- part shirt, part tent.
How many times did her contract require her to say "Calvados"?
She can be amusing, for sure, but does she know anyone who isn't a tiresome yuppie?

Ina then goes on to say, "Let's face it. Most of you are really, really poor and I'm really, really rich. That's why my Calvados-soaked tarts will ALWAYS taste better than your broke ass tart. Mmmkay?"
According to the thread on TWOP, the main frua there wrote to Ina's assistant who responded and said Ina has those shirts custom made. (*Snort*)
She also said Ina does not smoke (despite her phlegmy laugh..)
And the green stripes on her kitchen walls in the old series are not wallpaper but a custom paint job.
I've only watched the show once a while ago and didn't notice a phlegmy laugh. She has one now? Hmm, claims to not smoke? Maybe not ciggies, but maybe marijuana. Weight related to munchies?
She supports gay rights and marriage. Cut her some slack.
Save the venom for our abundant enemies.
That isn't passive aggressive behavior, OP.
She's obnoxious and phony.
As are her rabid fans.
Pulling out the gay card? Come on.
Wallpaper is for plebes.
Ina, downing a bottle of Calvados
I love Calvados. It is available at many different prices. Trader Joes currently has it for the holidays at $20. You can usually find it at Bev Mo for that price as well.
She probably meant don't go out of your way to buy it if you can't find it in your area.
I will add don't use Apple Jack instead because that stuff is just awful.

Is Bev Mo where all the butch lesbians shop?

I guarantee you she's never set foot in a Trader joes. The olive oil she uses is about $30 a bottle.
R18 You are thinking of Lez Ho
R19 Look they even have kosher Calvados
Did you see her serving spoons that she keeps in blue pouches?? Who does that? This was also on today when she made chicken hash and that dry-ass French toast for dessert.
R21 They are silver serving spoons. You keep them in those things so they don't tarnish.
"Ina has those shirts custom made. (*Snort*)"
This question was answered in a magazinei interview somewhere. Ina said her original shents were from Eileen Fisher, but now she has them custom-made by a dressmaker.
My guess is that Ina doesn't fit into Eileen Fisher's plus sizes anymore.
Yeah, there was a shot where she was putting truffles into her fridge and for a second you got a full shot of her below the sternum. Holy shit, I'm amazed she can fit through doors.
I bet the bitch has the diabetes, too.
"I bet the bitch has the diabetes, too."
Yeah, but I'm not making money off it, cuntface. #farrrrrrrrt#
Ina, swilling the "good" cognac right out of the bottle
She MUST be at least pre-diabetic.
Ina is an East Coast rarity in that most morbidly obese women are lower class.
Oh cum now....
The woman's name is INA.
Can you tell me, that if your name was INA, you wouldn't be a passive aggressive bitch as well?
Her husband Jeffrey is gay. Ina gets her sexual tension released through her cooking. Just look at what she's saying:
[quote]"Wow, you can really smell the Calvados.... Mmmm, you can smell the Calvados when it hits the heat.... The Calvados also helps...keep them moist."
w&w for R2
So is a shent sort of a proto-caftan?
Ina Garten: Hamptonfrau
evrything she makes has 5,000 calories per serving
Ever think any of her overly-rich recipes have caused to to have explosive diarrhea?
That's my story and I'm sticking to it, R34
Is she as snooty in real life as she appears on the show? She always speaks in a snooty pinched voice.
She may be a bitch, but she got you to keep watching through to the end.
Does T.R. still do spots on her show?
I messed around with T.R. once... definitely a hot piece of ass.
TR was gorgeous. Ina definitely had ideas about trying to turn him het.
T.R. has been persona non grata ever since Ina moved the show into her new "barn." He used to be featured on at least 2 shows per season, but he and Ina reportedly had a falling out, and she no longer has him running around the Hamptons looking for ingredients for her dishes. I can't imagine what they would have a falling out over? Maybe he refused to watch her anymore while she masturbated with a cucumber.
