I have now purchased all the Ina Garten Cookbooks. I discovered that several of my co-workers have her books and love them and I was not disappointed. Every recipe has a photo with it so you know what the dish is supposed to turn out like. If you never cook a single recipe, you will enjoy just reading these books.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very well
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I had already looked at the actual book, so I did not pay attention to the site description
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Came in excellent condition
The recipes are great and actually workable for someone who really, truly, does not like to plan meals or cook. And I'm not good at it! However, everything I've made from this cookbook has turned out well. I find myself turning to this cookbook quite often.
I love watching the Barefoot Contessa's show and have always wanted her books. Now I have three of them and they are great! There are pictures for almost every recipe and they are easy to follow! I only wish that she would have a magazine like a few of the other Food Network personalitys have.
My secretary borrowed my copy of Barefoot Contessa Family Style. Months passed. I finally ordered another copy so neither of us would have to be without this exceptional cookbook. Ina Garten's food is simple, sophisticated and memorable. The photography is inspiring. No matter how large your collection of foodie books, make room for this one.
