Ina Garten Is Getting A New Show And Our Hearts Can't Take It

The fan theories are excellent.

Ina Garten, queen of the kitchen and our hearts, is getting a new show on Food Network.

On Thursday, the “Barefoot Contessa” posted a photo with her assistant Lidey Heuck to announce the new project.

“Fun today filming with Lidey for my new TV series, ‘Cook Like a Pro’ on Food Network!!” Garten wrote on Twitter. “Airing mid-May; stay tuned!!”

”Cook Like A Pro” will be Garten’s second Food Network series. “Barefoot Contessa,” which premiered in 2002, is in its 11th season.

Food Network has not yet responded to a request for more details about the new show, but fans have some smart theories. Refinery29 points out “Cook Like A Pro” was the name of a 2011 “Barefoot Contessa” episode in which Garten learns to make date cake from pro chef Laura Donnelly, and speculates that maybe other pros will do the teaching in the new series.

Meanwhile, Jezebel noticed the cake in Garten’s announcement post is the same one she Instagrammed last month with the caption, “looks professional but with a little practice it’s really easy!!”

This woman is a hint-dropping PRO.

We’ll be flipping through our copy of Cooking for Jeffrey, looking for more clues, until we can find out more.
