In 1978, Ina Garten found herself working in the White House on nuclear energy policy and thinking, "There's got to be more to life than this!
" She saw an ad for a small food store for sale in a place she'd never been: The Hamptons at the end of Long Island. She and her husband drove up to investigate and made the owner an offer on the spot. Two months later she found herself the owner of Barefoot Contessa, a 400-sq.-ft. specialty food store with employees.
Twenty years later, Barefoot Contessa grew to a 3,000-sq.ft. food emporium where 20 cooks and bakers prepare the food. Twenty five more employees work in the store helping thousands of customers to choose breads, salads, dinners, and baked goods to take home. In 2001, Ina sold the store to her employees but continues her association with Barefoot Contessa in a variety of ways.
In 1999, Ina wrote her first book, The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, which was one of the best selling cookbooks of the year. The book invites readers into her specialty food store and shares the recipes that have made it such a success. In 2001, Ina followed with best-selling Barefoot Contessa Parties!, in which she invites readers into her home and shares her ideas and recipes for having parties that are fun for all -- including the host. Her follow-up cookbook, Barefoot Contessa Family Style, contains easy recipes to make everyone feel like family.
Ina has been a columnist for Martha Stewart Living Magazine and her food and entertaining are regularly featured in O, the Oprah magazine. Ina lives in East Hampton, New York and Southport, Connecticut with her husband Jeffrey, who is Dean of the Yale School of Management.... Read more.

I’ve heard about Delices and Gourmandises by my grandparents as they always order there some of our dishes or pastries during family ceremonies. I’ve never tried one of their products but maybe next time I will ask my grand-mother to order at Delices and Gourmandises online store on my next visit. Let’s say chocolates!! :)
