Be My Guest With Ina Garten Returns For Season 2. What We Know So Far

Ina Garten has pretty much done it all. Even before she ventured into the culinary world she worked at the White House in the Office of Management and Budget. Then she bought a specialty food store named Barefoot Contessa without having any food service or business experience. But, she sold it and wrote some cookbooks. With the success of her cookbooks, she began her most popular venture: filming her Food Network show, "Barefoot Contessa" (via Barefoot Contessa). Now, she's adding another show to her vast lineup.

"Be My Guest With Ina Garten," which premiered on March 26, 2022, was approved for two more seasons before the first one even aired (via Food Network). In her new series, we see her "invit[ing] friends old and new to her East Hampton home for a day of conversation, connection, food and fun visits to some of her favorite local spots." With Season 1 in the can, here's everything we know about Season 2 of "Be My Guest With Ina Garten."
