Book Description

Oct. 24 2006
Throughout the years that she has lived and worked in East Hampton, Ina Garten has catered and attended countless parties and dinners. She will be the first to tell you, though, that nothing beats a cozy dinner, surrounded by the people you love most, in the comfort that only your own home can provide. In Barefoot Contessa at Home, Ina shares her life in East Hampton, the recipes she loves, and her secrets to making guests feel welcome and comfortable.

For Ina, it’s friends and family–gathered around the dinner table or cooking with her in the kitchen–that really make her house feel like home. Here Ina offers the tried-and-true recipes that she makes over and over again because they’re easy, they work, 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, Mozzarella, and Pesto Paninis and Old-Fashioned Potato Salad, which are simply delicious. Then there are Ina’s homey dinners–from her own version of loin of pork stuffed with sautéed fennel to the exotic flavors of Eli’s Asian Salmon. And since Ina knows no one ever forgets what you serve for dessert, she includes recipes for outrageously luscious sweets like Peach and Blueberry Crumble, Pumpkin Mousse Parfait, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing.

Ina also lets readers in on her time-tested secrets for cooking and entertaining. Get the inside scoop on everything from what Ina considers when she’s designing a kitchen to menu-planning basics and how to make a dinner party fun (here’s a hint: it doesn’t involve making complicated food!).

Along with beautiful photographs of Ina’s dishes, her home, and the East Hampton she loves, this book is filled with signature recipes that strike the perfect balance between elegance and casual comfort. With her most indispensable collection yet, Ina Garten proves beyond a shadow of doubt that there truly is no place like home.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

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.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Ina rocks! Feb. 20 2007
After buying this book and trying many of the recipes, I can now say I am a total convert. As an avid home cook, I often try new recipes and have quite a collection of books and recipes sourced online. This has now become my "go-to" book for both weeknight meals as well as for more extravagant dinner parties. Her recipes are easy to follow, illustrated with beautiful photography (love that!), ingredients are easy to find, and the results are delicious. What more can you ask for? If you are looking for complicated, challenging restaurant-style recipes, this is not for you. However, if you are in the market for recipes that your family and friends will love (and that you will enjoy cooking) then buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can always count on Contessa! Aug. 12 2007
Well, she's cooked up another classic cookbook again. This time the theme of the book is food you serve at home- not in your house. The book starts out by defining what a home is to her- and to tell you the truth, it sounds a bit like mine: it's not perfect by any means, and is, in fact, a bit cluttered. Cluttered not so much in a messy way, but rather with personal items which ultimately are responsible for making the house into a home.

And so it is with her delicious recipes. Laid out in different sections such as dinner, soups, etc., each section is prefaced by several pages of interesting info on a selected food or food preparation topic.

A very down-to-earth cookbook, it is laid out well, has great pictures, and you'll even notice that the pages have a thick, smooth feel to them. Also suggest The Sixty-Second Motivator if you have trouble sticking to a healthy diet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could I love this book anymore??? March 8 2007
I cannot rave about this book enough. Ina Garten's recipes are simple with easy to find ingredients but taste like you have spent all day slaving away in the kitchen. Her Chicken with Goat Cheese and Basil is my new go-to recipe for company. It takes 5 minutes to assemble and then you can just throw it in the oven and forget about it. The first time I made it I just could not believe how fantastic the flavours were. I am slowly working my way through all the other recipes that appeal to me and have yet to be disappointed. I would reccommend this book to beginner and experienced cooks alike. The recipes are easy enough for even the newest cook to make but leave enough room for experimentation that an experienced chef could easily play around with the ingredients to change them up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ina Garten's cookbooks are the best! Feb. 10 2009
By Iveta
I have first bought the original book from Ina following my friend's recommendation and tried a few recipes. Now I own all of her cookbooks and am using them all the time - each recipe has a picture of the finished item and clear and concise instructions. I have worked through most of the recipes in this book and have never been disappointed - something almost unheard of with numerous other cookbooks I own. Forget all my other cookbooks - I hardly ever use them nowadays as I know I can rely on Ina's books for fabulous results. I especially like that she tells you what can be made in advance which makes entertaining less stressful for the hostess.

4.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic! July 15 2011
The fact that almost every recipe received perfect scores confirms what I already knew: Ina Garten's cookbooks belong in everyone's kitchen. Granted this cookbook is heavy on the desserts section and some of the recipes might be considered a little too basic for more seasoned chefs, but for a new cook wanting to stretch their culinary muscles this book is perfect! It provides you with delicious, good solid comfort food without being pretentious. I also like how at the back of the book she includes a number of menu ideas, an addition which many people will no doubt find inspiring when putting together a dinner party.
