We love any time Ina Garten shares some of her personal cooking routine with us, but her recent reveal might be the most fun one yet. Instead of pointing out common kitchen mistakes or how to recreate her favorite recipes, the Barefoot Contessa gave us all a look at the amazing music she listens to while whipping things up in the kitchen.
Garten shared the playlist on her blog and wrote, “The first thing I do when I start cooking is crank up the tunes — it really gets my creative juices flowing! Today I’m sharing one of my go-to cooking playlists that I call ‘Women Who Rock’ — it’s a compilation of lots of my favorite songs by female artists. I hope you love it!”
Take a look (and a listen!) at the full playlist below:
Garten’s rockstar women playlist includes plenty of our own favorites, like Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, and Fleetwood Mac. She mixed in a few newer artists, too, like Taylor Swift, Adele, and Beyonce. The jams kick off with Shania Twain belting, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman.” If that doesn’t get your heart jumping and in the mood to conquer any challenge in front of you, we don’t know what will.
Garten didn’t skimp on the number of tracks, either. There are a total of 51 songs and the whole thing runs for more than three hours, so you’ll be sure to have enough musical inspiration to keep your energy going no matter how long a recipe (or any other project) might take.
The playlist is also available on Apple Music if that’s what you prefer to listen on.
Whichever way you go, be sure to hit play before busting out your next recipe and imagine you’re enjoying a dance party with the Barefoot Contessa while you work. We bet she’s got some great moves!
