The First Season of ‘Barefoot Contessa’ Is Now on Netflix

Relive your favorite early Ina moments on Netflix!

“We know Jeffrey is going to love this!”

Food Network star Ina Garten is a lovely lady. She films her television show Barefoot Contessa at her home in East Hampton, New York on Long Island and shows viewers her life as a cook, gardener, and wife. She’s also an intelligent woman who has shared some great words of wisdom throughout the years.

Now, you can “Netflix and chill” to the first season of Barefoot Contessa: Back to Basics. Her first season aired in October 2008.

In case you haven’t seen the show, Garten (the “Barefoot Contessa”) shares her tips for creating elegant and easy recipes. She also reveals her secrets to successful hosting and entertaining at home. And, of course, Ina always lets her husband Jeffrey try the food before it is served.


The debut of Back to Basics on Netflix comes just in time for the holiday season when most of us are planning dinner parties and prepping for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
