Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, is writing her memoir to be released in 2022.

The next book by million-selling chef Ina Garten will be a little more personal.

Celadon Books announced Wednesday that Garten is working on a memoir, not yet titled. It’s tentatively scheduled for 2022.

Garten, longtime host of the Food Network’s “Barefoot Contessa,” has written such bestsellers as “Barefoot Contessa Parties!” and “Barefoot in Paris.” A self-taught cook inspired in part by Julia Child, Garten said in a statement that she hoped her book would “inspire readers to find their own unique story.”

Garten, 71, was a budget analyst for the federal government before leaving in the late 1970s and purchasing a specialty food store called The Barefoot Contessa. Her first book, “The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook,” came out in 1999. All of her cookbooks have been released by Clarkson Potter.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
