Joined by a moderator, Garten will share stories that bring the audience behind the scenes of life in the Hamptons, filming her TV show, writing bestselling cookbooks and enjoying food with friends and family. An audience Q&A will directly follow the interview.

Tickets (starting at $41 plus applicable service charges) go on sale Sunday, June 12 at Noon at Mesa Arts Center’s Box office or by calling 480-644-6500.

Ina’s most personal cookbook yet, Cooking for Jeffrey, is filled with the recipes Jeffrey and their friends request most often as well as charming stories from Ina and Jeffrey’s many years together. From satisfying lunches to elegant dinners, Ina will discuss the recipes she has tested over and over again, so you too can serve them with confidence to the people you love. Ten million copies of Garten’s books are in print, including her last nine titles, all of which are New York Times bestsellers.

Ina Garten’s show Barefoot Contessa is now in its 11th season on the Food Network. Ina lives in East Hampton, New York, with her husband, Jeffrey. Learn more at
