The Truth About Ina Garten's Relationship With Giada De Laurentiis

Ina Garten and Giada De Laurentiis are established celebrity chefs in the culinary space who are known for their vibrant cooking styles and unmatched expertise. As far as the latter is concerned, Garten is a huge source of inspiration for her. According to CheatSheet, De Laurentiis looks up to Garten's cooking style and refers to her recipes often. 

In fact, De Laurentiis once revealed that her most preferred cake recipe is one created by Garten herself. She's such a big fan, in fact, that she uses said recipe to make her birthday cake each year without fail. De Laurentiis said, "I have the same chocolate cake every year. Ina uses a cherry liqueur in the frosting that is just freaking phenomenal and actually seeps into the cake itself." Sounds rather tempting, eh?

Plus, the two get along well and have shared common experiences in the past. They have also appeared on TV together and have delighted their fans with their easygoing rapport. Here's a peek inside their bond.
