If you were to create an unauthorized kitchen survival guide by Ina Garten, imagine her essentials include chambray, good olive oil, good vanilla, good vodka, and roast chicken.
We’re not that far off, after all. Earlier this month, she revealed New Yorker radio hour Host David Remnick thinks roast chicken is *one* thing every home cook should know how to make.
In an interview, Remnick posed the following questions: What do you mean you don’t have to be nervous? What would you recommend starting with? “
Ina’s answer is very typical of Ina so don’t be surprised.
“There is one thing everyone should know,” she says. She does it in many ways. I do it with potatoes and fennel.in this book [Go-To Dinners], There are spring roast chicken and spring vegetable roast chicken, asparagus and so on. Place almost all the vegetables in a roasting pan, place the chicken on top, and pop it in the oven. It’s the easiest thing in the world. The only thing you have to do is make sure you don’t overcook the chicken. “
If you’re one of those nervous people like us, here’s what you should know. You can study with Barefoot Contessa’s cookbook to roast chicken that may or may not come out of the oven gorgeously golden and juicy…or the best book you can ever do. Make a call with the old trick, the rotisserie chicken. Just wink and say it’s homemade.
Ina Garten considers this ingredient to be BS (so are we)
