I was so excited to see that Ina Garten had a new cookbook out so much so that when one of my staff had snagged a copy, I rushed to Chapters and got my own!

I wanted to share my Friday night dinner à la Ina!

Cocktail: Dukes Cosmopolitan
App: Tuscan mashed chickpeas
Starter: balsamic roasted beet salad
Main: salmon and melting cherry tomatoes
Dessert: sticky toffee date cake

I will modestly admit dinner was a success!

Do check out Ina’s latest!
