What Is Ina Garten's Favorite Fast Food?

Ina Garten "Doesn't Eat Fast Food at All," With the Exception of This 1 Popular Place

Ina Garten usually cooks with the freshest ingredients from her local Hamptons shops, and she's much more likely to pull a homemade soup from her freezer than stop for fast food for dinner on a busy night. But that doesn't mean she never has fast food, and there is one exception for the Barefoot Contessa, queen of culinary: In-N-Out. Ina revealed her favorite fast food in a recent interview with Today that touched on little-known facts about the beloved cooking host.

"I have to say, I don't eat fast food at all, with one exception," she said. "When we're in California doing book tours, we always have to go to In-N-Out Burger. It's so good and I know it was Julia Child's favorite too, so it's OK."

Solid choice, Ina. If Julia Child approves of your burger-and-fries preference, then you're in the clear. Plus, In-N-Out is famous for its hand-cut french fries made fresh every day, so they're definitely not store-bought. Ina revealed plenty of other fun facts in her Today interview, including the reminder that she's been a Taylor Swift fan for years. Gotta love her!
