Just months after channeling her idol, Ina Garten, in her "Pretend Cooking Show," the 46-year-old actress took to Instagram to reveal she actually hung out with the Food Network star. The two spent the morning together in East Hampton, New York, on Sunday -- where Garner even got a first look at Garten's new cookbook.
"I understand if this brings up big feelings for you 😬, but I spent the morning with @inagarten. ❤️ In her barn kitchen, in her garden, having coffee...yes. It’s true. 🤗 I even got a sneak peek of the new Barefoot Contessa cookbook— #CookLikeAPro— it’s fabulous," the actress wrote alongside an incredible selfie with Garten. "Thank you for the perfect morning, Ina, you are beloved for a reason. I can’t wait to continue the conversation. ❤️, Jen. #sheseverythingwewanthertobe #luckyme."
