Ina Garten, a.k.a. the “Barefoot Contessa,” likes to use the phrase “How easy is that?” (She’s even trademarked it.) But sometimes the Contessa takes her motto a bit too far. Take, for instance, her “Cheese Platter” recipe. To begin, Ina urges readers to “go to the best cheese shop in town” and “taste everything.” (That’s easy if you live in the Hamptons like the Contessa.) After selecting an assortment of formaggi, the next step is to arrange it on a platter. Then add small knives, “maybe one for each type of cheese.” (Up to you!) Finally, add crackers. Congrats — you’ve managed to buy cheese and put it on a plate.
