Ina Garten has seemingly done it all. From gracing our TV screens to sharing the best recipes, kitchen tricks, and hacks on Instagram, there’s nothing the star and cookbook author can’t do. Luckily we’re about to learn even more about her: Ina’s memoir officially has a release date, according to her Instagram bio.
Yes, the rumors are true. The highly anticipated memoir is set to release October 1, 2024, and we couldn’t be more excited. The book will be published by Celadon Books, an imprint of Macmillan Publishers. “By finding a way to do what I love for a living — cooking — I’ve been fortunate to build a career that has not only been incredibly rewarding but has brought people together through the power of home cooking,” says Ina of the acquisition, according to a Celadon press release. “I hope my book will inspire readers to find their own unique story.”
The kitchen whiz has been working on the book for the past few years and the status has been in limbo for a while, but a date is finally set. The memoir isn’t available for pre-order as of yet, but keep your eyes peeled, as we’re sure it’s coming soon.
Commenters on an Instagram post by @caryneaves1 couldn’t contain their excitement. “I’m going to faint,” wrote one user. “Oh my gosh, this made my day!” said another.
While we don’t know exactly what the memoir will entail yet, you can be sure you’re going to learn much more about Ina. We’ll hopefully get stories from her childhood, and about her work in the government prior to switching careers. As illustrated by the star’s story, dreams really do come true.
Mark your calendars! There’s a fantastic read in your future.
