    • Great cookbook

      I bought this cookbook for my husband who has never spent much time cooking in the kitchen but watches Barefoot Contessa on tv all the time. I thought instead of him bringing me the ideas, now that he's recently retired, he can start preparing meals himself :-) . Very easy to follow, great tips and he is enjoying his new retirement hobby, thanks to Ina.

    • barefoot contessa back to basics

      I love this book, but I have to say, I love anything that Ina Garten writes. Her recipes are very good and very easy to follow. Everything that I have made in this book has been great. This book is good for the beginner thru the professional. The blueberry muffins with strussel topping is great! I love all the tips she gives at the end of the book and the questions that she answers about different cooking terms are wonderful. I received this book as a gift from my sister and if I had not received this book as a gift, I would difinetely buy it on my own. Thank you....
