Ina and Jeffrey
If there are two people more in love than Ina Garten and her husband, Jeffrey, we’re hard pressed to find them. These two met in 1964, and they’ve been married for nearly five decades. Recently they revealed to Food Network Magazine the story of their earliest days together — they’re every bit as adorable as you’d imagine, with memories of love letters galore — and how Ina prepared impressive meals on the go as she and Jeffrey traveled throughout Paris with little money to their name.
