The Barefoot Contessa Gets in the Hot Seat with Evan Kleiman on Thursday


Ina Garten, aka The Barefoot Contessa, is coming to L.A. this Thursday for a live interview at the Wilshire Ebell Theater. Questions will come from KCRW’s Evan Kleiman, with some time reserved for audience Q&A as well. (Jennifer Garner was originally supposed to be the moderator, but it’s been changed with no official word as to why. Perhaps another instance of Garten snubbing Garner?)

If you make it down and do somehow get called on for a question, think outside the box and ask her about her pre-culinary life, when she was a nuclear policy analyst for Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter. (True story.)

Tickets to the event are $42, and include a signed copy of Garten’s newest book, Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust.
