Williams Sonoma has announced today the launch of a new virtual event series with Ina Garten to celebrate the launch of Ina’s new cookbook, Modern Comfort Food. At each event, Garten will be joined by one of her favorite celebrity friends as she shares behind-the-scenes stories of filming her award-winning television show, writing her best-selling cookbooks, and enjoying food with family and friends at her home in the Hamptons.
On Tuesday, October 20, Ina will be joined by Jennifer Garner and on Tuesday, November 17, Garten will be teaming up with Katie Couric to discuss her new cookbook via a ticketed virtual event. Each ticket for the event will include an autographed copy of Garten’s new book, Modern Comfort Food, and a unique access code to attend the virtual event. Customers can also purchase a ticket package that in addition to her book, includes a limited-edition spatula that Ina designed exclusively for Williams Sonoma benefiting No Kid Hungry.
Tickets are available for purchase at www.williams-sonoma.com/inagartenevents.
The deadline to purchase tickets is the Sunday before each event (Sunday, October 18 for Jennifer Garner event and Sunday, November 15 for Katie Couric event).
Customers who preorder tickets to the virtual events or purchase Garten’s Modern Comfort Food cookbook directly through Williams Sonoma before October 6, will be eligible to receive the first-ever downloadable Barefoot Contessa Recipe Index which includes every recipe from Garten’s 12 beloved cookbooks.
“Food has an almost magical ability to comfort us, soothe us, and bring us together in so many ways,” writes Garten in the introduction to her newest book, Modern Comfort Food (Clarkson Potter; On Sale October 6, 2020).
“Ina continues to be a constant source of inspiration for our customers who admire everything she does in the kitchen,” said Williams Sonoma President, Ryan Ross. “The Williams Sonoma virtual event series is the perfect opportunity for all of Ina’s fans and our customers to celebrate her new cookbook Modern Comfort Food from the comfort of our own homes.”
