Publisher Comments:

Ina Garten, who shared her gift for casual entertaining in the bestselling Barefoot Contessa Cookbook and Barefoot Contessa Parties!, is back with her most enticing recipes yet—a collection of her favorite dishes for everyday cooking. In Barefoot Contessa Family Style, Ina explains that sharing our lives and tables with those we love is too essential to be saved just for special occasions—and its easy to do if you know how to cook irresistible meals with a minimum of fuss.

For Ina, the best way to make guests feel at home is to serve them food thats as unpretentious as it is delicious. So in her new book, shes collected the recipes that please her friends and family most—dishes like East Hampton Clam Chowder, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, and Linguine with Shrimp Scampi. Its the kind of fresh, accessible food thats meant to be passed around the table in big bowls or platters and enjoyed with warm conversation and laughter.

In Inas hands tried-and-true dishes are even more delicious than you remember them: Her arugula salad is bright with the flavors of lemon and Parmesan, the Oven-Fried Chicken is crispy without excess fat, and her Deep-Dish Apple Pie has the perfect balance of fruit and spice. Barefoot Contessa Family Style also includes enticing recipes that are memorable and distinctive, like Lobster Cobb Salad, Tequila Lime Chicken, and Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash.

With vivid photographs of Ina cooking and serving food in her beautiful Hamptons home, as well as menu suggestions, practical wisdom on what to do when disaster strikes in the kitchen, and tips on creating an inviting ambience with music, Barefoot Contessa Family Style is the must-have guide to the joy of everyday entertaining.

Review:

"Practically every recipe is a lesson in how to coax intense flavors out of everyday ingredients....A harried family cook can turn to the Barefoot Contessa and find comfort, generosity, and a sympathetic ear." T. Susan Chang, Boston Globe Correspondent, 11/6/2001

Review:

"[t]hese recipes manage to seem not dated but just reasonable solutions to the eternal problem set of practicality, flavor and time. With photographs of the dishes on nearly every spread and a nice, open format, Garten's book is easy to use. Sections on desserts, kids, and brunch complete this fine snapshot of real-life cooking and the joys of eating in." Publishers Weekly

I requested this book for my birthday because I enjoy watching Ina's cooking shows on television. I wanted a book with recipes that would be appropriate for our family dinners rather than a fancy party. Her recipes are easy to follow and the photos are gorgeous and inspiring. I have recipes for some of the common dishes, but I tweaked mine with her suggestions and now they turn out even better than before. Simple ingredients, non-fussy cooking, delicious meals.
