Ina's Roasted Eggplant Dip:This is one of my favorite dips/spreads of all time. It's from Ina Garten's first and best cookbook The Barefoot Contessa, and she used to sell it in her East Hampton catering shop (such a wonderful place). Forget all the Mediterranean recipes, this is straight forward American. All the ingredients are local, from NJ. Eggplants, red bell peppers, garlic and red onion.
