Ina Garten Puts Us All To Shame With Her Cheese Plate Skills

One of the more enjoyable parts of an author’s cookbook tour is watching them do cooking segments on late night television, when it’s more acceptable, and even encouraged, to drink cocktails while hovering over flames and other electrical gadgets.

While promoting her new book Cooking For Jeffrey, Food Network star and everyone’s fantasy best friend, Ina Garten, went off script and decided that building a cheese plate during a recent stop on Late Night With Seth Meyers would be more fun that pretending anyone wants to see an elaborate recipe unfold at midnight. The two started with a pair of refreshing Prosecco cocktails  and proceeded to egg each other on in a cheese plate building contest. “Are you okay?,” asks Seth as Ina struggles with some grapes. “I feel like you’re off your game. Are you throwing this to make me feel better?”

Here’s Ina, always making things look effortless. And Seth, always with the perfectly timed jokes. The two really, really need their own cooking show.
