In Barefoot Contessa at Home, Ina shares the recipes she loves, and her secrets to making guests feel welcome. Here she offers the recipes she makes over and over again because they're easy and they're universally loved. *For a leisurely Sunday breakfast, she has Easy Cheese Danishes or Breakfast Fruit Crunch to serve with the perfect Spicy Bloody Mary. *For lunch, she has classics with a twist, such as Tomato, Mozarella and Pesto Panini and Old-Fashioned Potato salad, which are simply delicious. *Then there are Ina's delicious dinners - from loin of pork stuffed with sauteed fennel to the exotic flavours of Eli's Asian Salmon. *And there are outrageously luscious sweets like Peach and Blueberry Crumble. Ina also lets readers in on her time-tested strategies for cooking and entertaining - from what she considers when she's designing a kitchen, to menu-planning basics. In this beautifully illustrated book, Ina Garten proves beyond a shadow of doubt that there truly is no place like home.
Love all of Ina's recipes. Now i have all of her books.

Recipes are grand. I like the way the book is divided into sections. Some of the recipes are among my favorite things, like 'Coconut Cake'. Bought the book for the wonderful 'Potato Salad' recipe and I am enjoying the whole rest of it.

Great Starter Book
This is an excellent cook book to start any cooking adventure. Whether entertaining a large party or a night for two, this book has fantastic ideas and is easy to follow.
Publishers Weekly, 2006-08-21 Garten's fifth cookbook (after Barefoot in Paris) follows her surefire formula: uncomplicated but elegant recipes for the home cook whose priority is spending time with friends and family, not in the kitchen. From breakfast to dessert, the Food Network star organizes this volume by meal, with an easy-to-navigate recipe list at the top of each section. Many entries provide a creative alternative to the basics: the Summer Borscht which calls for fresh beets, cucumber and chicken stock will make a cool, flavorful substitute for the predictable bowl of gazpacho, and the mayonnaise-based Jon Snow's Fish Salad freshly roasted white fish filets (e.g., halibut) distinguished by the addition of diced fennel will supersede tuna salad. But some of Garten's "feel-good" foods barely warrant inclusion her recipe for Sunday Morning Oatmeal barely elevates the instructions on the Quaker canister. If not always inventive, these recipes (e.g., Cornish Hens with Cornbread Stuffing) should be reliable for seasoned but time-pressed or ambitious but inexperienced cooks. Striking a warm, personal tone, Garten also includes advice on designing a kitchen, making a grocery list, planning a menu and where to shop and dine in the Hamptons. (Nov.)
