Ina Garten is a passive aggressive bitch

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?

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 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.

"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.

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.

I love how she says to use really good ketchup or mayonnaise and then whips out a bottle of Heinz or Hellman's. You would think she would use some $20 stuff from a local Hampton's joint. I don't understand why she doesn't make homemade.

by Anonymousreply 4611/30/2014

She has a few recipes where she puts in a tablespoon or so of framboise, but she never suggests a substitute. I'd never drink it, so buying the bottle would be a waste, like calvados.

I don't think I've ever seen a heterosexual person on her show, besides perhaps Ina herself. Even her husband is a big ol' mary.

She's snobbish as shit, but harmless. I don't hate her, but her fake laugh does give me the creeps.

by Anonymousreply 4811/30/2014

Because Hellmann's is really good mayonnaise. The ingredients aren't fancy but the taste is fresh, creamy, and perfect for recipes.

by Anonymousreply 4911/30/2014

R47 if it's what I'm thinking it is, Framboise Lambic is a raspberry beer (though I think it comes in other flavors). It's actually not that expensive - around $7-$8 for a bottle that's about the size of a 22 oz.

It's really good, and does not taste like a traditional beer at all. It just has a really concentrated raspberry flavor with some fizz.

Most major grocery chains with a wine dept sell it, and I think I may have seen it at Trader Joes too.

R49, try making your own mayo. You'll never go back to Hellman's.

Making mayo in the Cuisinart is one of the easiest bits of cooking, R64. I didn't buy mayo for years, and I only started recently because I have a friend over to eat who literally puts it on everything but dessert.

I started a GoFundMe campaign to buy the angry poor OP her very own bottle of Calvados for the holidays. It's a fine French brandy made from apples, as you know.

I hate the she and Americans say apricot, like app-ree-i-cot.

by Anonymousreply 7012/01/2014

R50 - no it's not a framboise beer! It's a sweet raspberry flavored liqueur. But that beer sounds interesting, thanks.

R47 - R66 has the solution. I've seen Framboise liqueurs in tiny bottles - especially around the holidays, packaged for stocking stuffer or gift basket type gift giving. I think it may be sold in several size bottles. The stuff seems to last forever, and it can be used in various dessert and drink recipes.

Years ago I had a great recipe for a French apple tart in filo dough type shell, which called for Calvados. I made it once with a different brandy because Calvados was too pricey. It was good but not great. The next time I used Calvados because I felt like splurging, and it really made a difference. But that was one big, expensive bottle of booze.

The problem with homemade mayo is that it has raw eggs. Unless you use pasteurized eggs or have a trusted source for the regular kind, it's not a good idea.

I never understood why Food Network would go through the trouble of hiding certain brands from the cans and boxes they use on their shows, then they will turn around and name drop stuff like this. She could have said, don't bother going out and buying this particular brand name of brandy if you don't already have it, any brandy will do.

I wonder why they all look the same, only the color changes. I mean she's heavy but not that bad that she has to only wear the exact same thing all the time. He does have pretty hair for a woman her age. Even if it's dyed it's so silky and shiny like a young persons. Money and the best stylist can't give you that. She's just lucky.

I think way back when she and Jeffery had a sexual relationship but I'll bet they have not done it since the 70s.

I've made my own mayonnaise a few times, always with "really good" ingredients, and trying slight variations. To me, it's never as good as Hellmann's. It sort of defeats the purpose of making your own if it isn't an improvement.

About Framboise, there's a sweet liqueur but there's also a clear raspberry brandy that's not sweet. I think she uses the latter.

A friend of mine lives in East Hampton and knows Ina a bit socially and told me an amusing story about her.

A friend of his brought her to an informal dinner my friend was having. He expected she'd eat dantily, as many fat people do in public. Well, she said she was starved when she arrived and she wasn't kidding.

She ate a salad, two enormous helpings of a heavy, filling cassoulet, four big slices of French bread (used to help shovel in the cassoulet), and polished off by herself virtually a whole bottle of Côtes du Rhône.

After that, my friend said,"she spent the rest of the evening in the guest bathroom, blowing up my toilet."
