Ina Garten knows that people are craving home-cooked meals, but due to the pandemic, they have to cook everything themselves. To help with that, Garten has moved up her new book's release date.
Food Network star Ina Garten is doing her best to help people who are stuck at home and may not have access to their favorite restaurants due to the coronavirus.
The bestselling author announced on Tuesday that she'd be treating her fans to a new release date for her book, "Modern Comfort Food." The post is found below.
Garten began her post by acknowledging the COVID-19-induced lockdowns. "Because we all need it ASAP," she began. "We decided to move up the publication date of my new book..."
Alongside the caption, Garten shared a few photos of her delicious meals, and they indeed looked scrumptious. The very first photo featured the brunette cook holding a bowl of hot soup.

Garten's new release date for her book is October 6. Currently, it's available for preorder online, in bookstores, and on her show's show site, BarefootContessa.com.
The original date for the release of the book was October 27. "Modern Comfort Food" will be the 12th collection of yummy meals from Garten and will include tons of recipes.

Last month, the author gave fans a sneak peek of the book as she again spoke about the tough times we're all going through. "I don't know about you, but everyone I love is feeling so stressed out these days," she noted.
Speaking to People, Garten revealed that she'd be sharing dishes for her smashed burgers, sausages with peppers and onions, cheesy chicken enchiladas, banana rum trifle, and her special Boston cream pie.
While waiting, fans can still catch delicious meals from Garten on television. Last Friday, she appeared on the at-home version "The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert.
The food expert boasted a quarantine cocktail, which she'd originally introduced to fans a few weeks ago. She shared the light pink drink with her husband, who was eager to join in.
Garten originally shared the mix, which consisted of fresh lime juice, cranberry juice cocktail, and a good bit of Cointreau, on April Fool's Day as some lighthearted fun.
Some fans were worried, however, after the author drank the alcoholic beverage so early in the morning. As Garten recently noted, though, time is a bit scattered these days.
