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 it’s 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 that’s as unpretentious as it is delicious. So in her new book, she’s collected the recipes that please her friends and family most—dishes like East Hampton Clam Chowder, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, and Linguine with Shrimp Scampi. It’s the kind of fresh, accessible food that’s meant to be passed around the table in big bowls or platters and enjoyed with warm conversation and laughter.

In Ina’s 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.

In 1978, Ina Garten left her job as a budget analyst in the White House to pursue her dream of operating a specialty food store in the Hamptons. Since opening the Barefoot Contessa, she has written the bestselling Barefoot Contessa Cookbook and Barefoot Contessa Parties! She is a frequent contributor to major national magazines and writes a recurring column in O Magazine. Her new television series on entertaining can be seen on Food Network. Ina lives in East Hampton, New York, and Southport, Connecticut, with her husband, Jeffrey.

  • Barefoot Contessa Family Style

    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

  • Waste of money

    This cook book does not contain many recipes. I thought I would enjoy it but ended up giving it away.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • As always

    Ina comes through again. I now have her complete series and have always gotten rave reviews from friends and family for everything I've made from her book. Awesome Ina...

  • Love Ina Garten

    All her cook books are great. Delicious recipes (havent made a bad one yet) and they are all relatively simple for just about any level of cook.

  • Incredible recipes

    My wife has already made a few of the recipes from this book and they were out of this world.

  • I love the Contessa!

    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.

  • Make room for this one.

    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.

  • I adore this book! A full page, color photo for each yummy recipe. Great recipes of food you'd actually make (nothing "weird"). Get it--you won't be sorry. This is also a great gift for a bride-to-be or a birthday.
