This cookbook is a great way to cook up some good recipes. Easy to follow and prepare. Most of the ingredients are readily available in the grocery store. My daughter liked the book so much I gave it to her for Christmas. All of my girls love to cook and I'm a chef, so a cookbook that gives great recipes is good to have around. I love the way Ina always to make things easy and many you can do ahead of time. I really enjoy this book ,its up there with my top 50 cookbooks that I collect!
I purchased the cookbook for a gift but have made several recipes from it myself. My guests complemented me on all the wonderful tasting dishes. I shared one of the deserts with a friend and both her guest and mine were very pleased. Ina's instructions are very easy to understand and she tells one step by step how to prepare all the ingredients. Ina does a great job. I would purchase this for another gift.

I want to throw out other cookbooks and set up library of Barefoot Contess books. Everything is easy to follow, pictures make you hungry and recipes come out great. Love those zucchini pancakes and her cake frosting elevated a box cake to a masterpiece. She is my hero!

I love the barefoot contessa! This is my least favorite of the collection of cookbooks. The recipes are great, and the photos are wonderful, but alot of the meals in this cookbook aren't really sensible family meals. Great for families with more refined taste maybe.
