In every episode of her show Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten glances cooly into the camera and, with a smile, delivers a line something similar to “Clean hands are a chef’s best friend.” You know what runs a close second? Basic improv skills. There’s nothing more frustrating than getting ready to start baking on a lazy [...]
