Ina Garten Shares Emily Blunt’s Crispy Potato Recipe

After sharing the recipe, there were so many visitors to her website that it crashed.

Ina Garten has been helping us through the quarantine with amazing recipes that we can try at home. And she is not content to merely share her own recipes, either. Garten decided to pass along a delightful recipe from the one and only Emily Blunt and the results were hilarious.

The actress had originally provided the recipe on her show. Apparently, it must have been absolutely amazing because it did not take long for the recipe to crash Garten’s site. When Garten shared a photo of the potatoes on her Instagram page, everyone wanted to know more. Don’t they look delicious? In the post, she promised to share Emily’s English Roasted Potatoes recipe on her own site.

True fans of The Barefoot Contessa probably remember this recipe from her show, as it was shared back in 2018. Great recipes like these always have a long shelf life and Ina is planning to include the recipe in her upcoming cookbook, Modern Comfort Food. The book was supposed to drop later this year but they are in the process of moving the release date up.

After sharing the recipe, there were so many visitors to her website that it crashed and she had to personally reassure everyone that she was doing everything in her power to get things back up to speed.
