How to Make a Perfect Cup of Coffee, According to *Jeffrey* Garten

I’ve always been told that the perfect relationship doesn’t exist. And as much as I’d like to believe that’s true (considering my boyfriend and I are over here having nuclear arguments over enchiladas), I know for a fact that it is indeed false. Why? Three words: Ina and Jeffrey.

Yes, I love Ina for her clever cauliflower-cutting and wine-chilling tricks (essential because, ever the perfect hostess, she always tries to greet her friends with a drink in hand), flawless recipes, and life-affirming belief in the power of cookies. But what I almost love more, is her relationship with Jeffrey, her soulmate and, on December 22, husband of 50 years.
