Ina Garten Re-Ups with Food Network


Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, has struck a new exclusive multiyear deal with Food Network.

The deal includes new episodes of Garten’s Emmy-winning Be My Guest series, in which she cooks and chats with friends at her home. The next season, set to launch in the fall, will feature celebrities such as Bobby Flay, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stephen Colbert and more.

“The most coveted invitation is one to Ina’s home to spend time having a meal and hearing all about the extraordinary life she’s had…simply put, Ina is a culinary icon,” said Betsy Ayala, head of content for food at Warner Bros. Discovery. “She has the ability to feed both the mind and body with thoughtful conversations and delicious recipes, and I am thrilled that we will be continuing our relationship and bringing her devoted audience more episodes for years to come.”

Garten added, “With Be My Guest, I’m welcoming really fun, interesting people into my barn in East Hampton for good food and conversation. I am so pleased that you have enjoyed hearing from my guests as much as I have enjoyed hosting them. I cannot wait for you to see the new shows!”
