Ina was raised in Stamford, Connecticut, and showed a scientific aptitude at school, but then postponed tertiary education to marry, and lived in Fort Bragg, North Carolina while her husband completed four years military service during the Vietnam War. Here she expanded her interest in culinary activities (and qualified as a private pilot), which continued when they moved to Washington DC in 1972 with her husband’s job, but she was also employed at the White House,  meantime completing an MBA degree at George Washington University. She was eventually promoted to write nuclear energy budget and policy papers for Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, but found relaxation in cooking, as well as ‘flipping’ houses, and subsequently resigned in 1978, to buy a specialty food store in New York – the Barefoot Contessa – named after the ’50s film starring Ava Gardner.

Ina was so successful that the business multiplied in physical size and revenues – and eventually on-line – Garden sold it in 1996, and then took to writing, publishing many books beginning with ‘The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook’ (1999), and many more on a similar theme, including “Barefoot Contessa Parties! Ideas and Recipes For Easy Parties That Are Really Fun’ (2001), “Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food You Can Make at Home’ (2004), ‘Barefoot Contessa at Home: Everyday Recipes You’ll Make Over and Over Again’ (2006), ‘Barefoot Contessa: How Easy Is That?’ (2010), to date totalling over 10.

Ina was again successful to the point where she began appearing on television in 2000, adding further to her net worth. She began her career in the show ‘From Martha’s Kitchen: Ina Garten’s Kitchen Clambake’, on the Food Network channel, and since 2002 she has hosted the cooking show ‘Barefoot Contessa’ , for which Ina won two Daytime Emmy Awards for the Outstanding Lifestyle/Culinary Host respectively in 2009 and 2010.

In addition to this, she has been nominated a number of times. From 2006 until 2010 Garten increased her net worth appearing in the documentary television series ‘Chefography’. Moreover, from 2010 to 2011 she appeared in the sitcom ’30 Rock’ created by Tina Fey.

Ina has also been working as a columnist for various magazines. Since 1999, she has written for ‘Martha Stewart Living magazine’ in the column of ‘Entertaining is Fun!’, since 2003 for ‘O, The Oprah Magazine’ in the column titled ‘Entertaining’, and since 2006 for the magazine ‘House Beautiful’ in the column ‘Ask the Barefoot Contessa’.

In her personal life, in 1968 Ina married Jeffrey Garten who she had first met being fifteen years old. Ina belongs to The Democratic Party and is active in political life.
