    Review quote
    "Beloved all over the planet (not only for her food), Ina Garten has become the inspiration in the kitchen for so many of us. Her ease, warmth and grace make her shows as delectable to watch as her food is to eat." Gwyneth Paltrow
    Back cover copy
    'People often think of French food as fancy food, and it's true that some French food is elaborate and formal. But there are so many kinds of French food. What I love is simple, country French food that is easy enough to make every day but special enough to serve for a party. So that's what this book is all about.'
    Flap copy
    Hearty boeuf Bourguignon served in deep bowls over a garlic-rubbed slice of baguette toast; decadently rich croque monsieur, eggy and oozing with cheese; gossamer crème brûlée, its sweetness offset by a brittle burnt-sugar topping. Whether shared in a cosy French bistro or in your own home, the romance and enduring appeal of French country cooking is irrefutable. Here is the book that helps you bring that spirit, those evocative dishes, into your own home. What Ina Garten is known for - on her Food Network show and in her previous bestselling books - is adding a special twist to familiar dishes, while also streamlining the recipes so you spend less time in the kitchen but still emerge with perfection. And that's exactly what she offers in Barefoot in Paris. Ina's kir royale includes the unique addition of raspberry liqueur - a refreshing alternative to the traditional crème de cassis. Her vichyssoise is brightened with the addition of zucchini (corgettes), and her chocolate mousse is deeply flavoured with the essence of orange. All of these dishes are true to their Parisian roots, but all offer something special - and are thoroughly delicious, completely accessible, and the perfect fare for friends and family. Barefoot in Paris is suffused with Ina's love of the city, of the bustling outdoor markets and alluring little shops, of the bakeries and fromageries and charcuteries - of the wonderful celebration of food that you find on every street corner, in every neighbourhood. So take a trip to Paris with the perfect guide - the Barefoot Contessa herself - in her most personal book yet.
