Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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."

Ina is a pro at cooking and both novice and more advanced cooks can learn a lot from her! Her new cookbook has wonderful mouth-watering recipes - so many to choose from!! I made her chocolate cupcakes and they were a big hit! The recipes are easy to understand and the pictures are beautiful! It's a very "upscale" cookbook! You'll love this one as much as her others!

Ihave not yet obtained the newest publication, Barefoot
Contessa at Home, but hope to have it soon. I do have all of her previous books and love them all and constantly refer to them for new ideas and refresh my recall of the old "stand-bys". I make every opportunity to enjoy her TV program when i am available to do so, not only for her wonderful recipes and ideas, but I just simply enjoy watching and listening to her with her warm personality and friendly ways, especially when talking to her many friends and when she shops, and so importantly, when she reflects on how much she loves preparing and enjoying her time with Jeffrey. When I first found the "Barefoot Contessa" I read of her beginning in one of her publications which related of her very stately and governmental position and her bold adventurous decision to switch to her "Barefoot Contessa boutique bakery/specialty store. One would have to admire someone who could reach out and make such a radical change,--I was in awe as i read the small biography of her life and I knew I liked her spirit from the onset.
As i watch and listen to her, I have such a heartfelt feeling of how special it would be just to be able to meet and talk with her and have the privilege of making her acquaintance and, even more imporantly, to count her as a friend.

My special thanks to her for all my moments spent with her; albeit afar, from New Hampton to my home in Tustin, California and even more, especially for the introduction and the instilled inspiration to try new and delicious recipes --I look forward to each and every time of being in her audience of many.

Forever a devoted fan,

Marion Stevens
