The Ina Garten Dish You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Ina Garten is a world-famous culinary personality who once worked as a budget analyst in the White House, and who has no formal cooking experience. Nothing stopped her from opening her own gourmet food shop in the Hamptons called Barefoot Contessa. She's best known for her Food Network cooking program of the same name which exhibits her high-quality standards of ingredients and her light-hearted admiration for booze.

Being born on February 2 (via PureWow), her zodiac falls under Aquarius, and a true trait of the sign is a distinct intellect that needs space for innovative creativity at work (via Astrology). This shines through her delectable recipes and special knack for entertaining guests. Reflective of her zodiac's energetic and people-pleasing attitude, if Garten were any of her own recipes, she'd be a Limoncello Vodka Collins — a tart drink that sparkles among a crowd. But what about the other zodiac signs? Read on to find out which Ina Garten dish represents your sign.

Aquarius: Charcuterie Board

Those born under Aquarius are highly artistic and individualized due to their analytical nature. They normally have a large group of friends and don't limit themselves to any specific cliques (via Horoscope).

An Aquarius is similar to Ina Garten's take on a charcuterie board (via SheKnows). Since the board completely customizable and the creativity is in your control — you can add whatever meats, cheeses, fruits, and more that you want (and even go crazy with the board itself) —  it's just as an Aquarius likes it. Each ingredient can be arranged to suit your aesthetic and the final product is ideal for sharing with all of your friends.

Pisces: Baked Cod with Garlic and Herb Ritz Crumbs

Pisces is a muted water sign represented by two opposing fish, which means that people under this zodiac are adaptable and can fine-tune almost anything (via Mind Body Green). Cosmopolitan's take on Pisces is that while the sign loves a good party, they sometimes want to take the night off.

Ina Garten's spin on the adaptable cod makes for a quick dinner that's as no-fuss as any Pisces. Her baked cod includes an unusual ingredient: buttery Ritz crackers, which are combined with panko, parsley, lemon zest, and butter to coat the fish. Whether a Pisces is in a rush to get to a party or chilling at home, this dish adapts to their mood.

Aries: Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

According to Allure, Aries is "bold and ambitious," and since they are symbolized with a ram, they are known to bulldoze straight ahead into any challenge with little hesitation. However, they are positive and confident — true to their fiery element.

A robust dish bursting with prominent flavors captures the essence of an Aries well. Ina Garten's Chicken with Forty Cloves of Garlic (via Barefoot Contessa) matches these strong characteristics. The recipe is enhanced with a splash of Cognac, white wine, and thyme, but the star of the show is all of that garlic. This is a recipe which holds back nothing and presents itself with the utmost confidence and boldness — just like an Aries would do.

Taurus: Baked Shrimp Scampi

If you're a Taurus, you're likely a great chef who prioritizes enticing tastes and a hands-on approach to life. You love to cook for others, especially family, because a Taurus is reliable and able to withstand almost anything when caring for others (via Astrology Zodiac Signs).

Ina Garten's delectable Baked Shrimp Scampi involves fine assembly skills as each shrimp is carefully placed around the gratin dish, then topped with a buttery, crunchy topping (via Food Network). Choosing the right shrimp is important, something a Taurus would easily find to be a no-brainer. Providing the most appropriate food flavors for entertaining is essential — a perfect task for a Taurus.

Gemini: Banana Crunch Muffins

Gemini is represented by twins, which means if that's your zodiac sign, you naturally dislike being alone. You are fun, flirty, and sociable with an impeccable sense of humor. However, patience is not a gleaming characteristic because you're just too busy with activities (via Almanac).

A Gemini has plenty in common with Ina Garten's Banana Crunch Muffins (via Food Network) which can be made ahead of time and are baked in plenty, so that they're never alone (nor are you encouraged to eat just one!) So for the social butterfly Gemini, these muffins are full of sweetness and offer ideal sharing capabilities.

Cancer: Peach and Berry Summer Pudding

Those born under the Cancer zodiac are dominated by their emotions, with nourishment and hominess both equally important. They can often appear mysterious at first glance, but according to Mind Body Green, that may be because they're prone to emotional pain.

Much like a peach that easily bruises when overripe, this Peach and Berry Summer Pudding from Ina Garten (via Food Network) is similar to the Cancer zodiac, but it's not all a bad thing. The exterior might be complicated to figure out at first, but once you dig in you'll find that it's packed with fresh, nutritious fruits and natural sweetness.

Leo: Beatty's Chocolate Cake

Leos, who fall under a feisty fire sign, crave to be the center of attention. They are vain, but deep down they're major softies who just want to live a fulfilling and pleasurable life. They want everyone else to feel the same, thus being exceptionally generous (via Astrology).

A Leo is most like Ina Garten's famously decadent Beatty's Chocolate Cake because they feel that everyone should love them, and vice-versa. It's the truth since chocolate cake is popular enough to have it's own national day (via National Today). And what's not to love about chocolate cake enhanced with coffee?

Virgo: Zucchini and Goat Cheese Tart

Virgos are keen on details and organization, so much so that they have an inherent weakness to make everything perfect but risk being too critical of themselves. Astrology Zodiac Signs also notes that Virgos are one with nature and enjoy healthy foods, which is on par with the fact their element is the earth.

It makes sense that they are most like Ina Garten's Zucchini and Goat Cheese Tart (via Food Network). Both main ingredients include multiple health benefits, especially goat cheese which is rich in vitamins, protein, and probiotics. Simply looking at the meticulously arranged tart, it's easy to see that this dish is all about Virgo.

Libra: Baked Rigatoni with Lamb Ragú

Since Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, people born under this sign have expensive taste in all facets of life and live for balance and harmony. They don't want to fight, they just want everyone to have their fair share in the world (via Nylon).

This baked rigatoni dish with lamb ragù (via Barefoot Contessa) is sure to be a people-pleaser, just like Libra. Lamb tends to be an expensive meat in the U.S., so Ina Garten's elevated spin on a classic baked rigatoni is enough to make a Libra's mouth water and bring peace and harmony to all who enjoy it.

Scorpio: Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

Scorpios are full of passion and will stop at nothing to get what they want. They have rich, deep passions, much like a bold red wine which, per Horoscope is their drink of choice. They are lovers of gloomy autumn weather and have an ardent love of foreign travel.

Since they're late-autumn people, a rib-sticking, luxurious meal such as Ina Garten's Red Wine Braised Short Ribs (via Food Network) suits them perfectly. Garten suggests using a dry red wine, such as one from France or Italy. This recipe even includes a bottle of Irish Guinness stout for a well-rounded flavor.

Sagittarius: Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash

A Sagittarius knows no boundaries when it comes to their fiery energy and lust for life. Being ruled by the planet Jupiter means you always desire more, but remain positive and vivacious. You don't want to be constrained by anything (via New York Post).

Your energy for a fulfilling life is reflected through Ina Garten's Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash — particularly the signature spice which is robust, not to mention, rather expensive. The squash, which peaks in winter, per Farmers' Almanac, represents the Sagittarius zodiac dates that excitedly transition into the new season.

Capricorn: Portobello Mushroom Lasagna

Those born under Capricorn value tradition and loyalty, but they can be prone to layering themselves in defenses against inner and outer fears. They like to be independent, but they also appreciate deep family connections and actively cherish all of their good memories (via Astrology Zodiac Signs).

Ina Garten's Portobello Mushroom Lasagna (via Food Network) captures a Capricorn's traditional and disciplined ideals while taking an earthy, fresh spin on a classic dish. Layered with a simple white sauce and plenty of fresh mushrooms, this meal represents Capricorn's traditional earth vibe all too well.
