Celadon Books, a division of Macmillan Publishers, announced today the acquisition of a memoir by the #1 New York Times bestselling author, Emmy Award winner, and James Beard Award recipient, Ina Garten.
Of the acquisition, Garten says: “By finding a way to do what I love for a living – cooking – I’ve been fortunate to build a career that has not only been incredibly rewarding but has brought people together through the power of home cooking. I hope my book will inspire readers to find their own unique story.”
Senior Vice President and Co-Publisher, Deb Futter, acquired the book; Esther Newberg of ICM negotiated the deal. Of the acquisition, Deb Futter adds, “Ina Garten is beloved by all, a national treasure who has become iconic beyond the food world. Her memoir will cement her legacy in the cultural landscape.”
A self taught cook, Garten is the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of eleven books of recipes, including “The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook,” “Barefoot Contessa Parties!,” and “Barefoot in Paris.” Garten is the recipient of three James Beard Awards and three Daytime Emmy Awards for her work as the host of the highly rated cooking show “Barefoot Contessa,” which has aired on the Food Network since 2002.
