Description

In Barefoot Contessa at Home, Ina shares the recipes she loves, and her secrets to making guests feel welcome. Here she offers the recipes she makes over and over again because they're easy and they're universally loved. *For a leisurely Sunday breakfast, she has Easy Cheese Danishes or Breakfast Fruit Crunch to serve with the perfect Spicy Bloody Mary. *For lunch, she has classics with a twist, such as Tomato, Mozarella and Pesto Panini and Old-Fashioned Potato salad, which are simply delicious. *Then there are Ina's delicious dinners - from loin of pork stuffed with sauteed fennel to the exotic flavours of Eli's Asian Salmon. *And there are outrageously luscious sweets like Peach and Blueberry Crumble. Ina also lets readers in on her time-tested strategies for cooking and entertaining - from what she considers when she's designing a kitchen, to menu-planning basics. In this beautifully illustrated book, Ina Garten proves beyond a shadow of doubt that there truly is no place like home.show more

Flap copy

Throughout the years that she has lived and worked in East Hampton, Ina Garten has catered and attended countless parties and dinners. She will be the first to tell you, though, that nothing beats a cosy dinner, surrounded by the people you love most, in the comfort that only your own home can provide. In Barefoot Contessa at Home, Ina shares her life in East Hampton, the recipes she loves, and her secrets to making guests feel welcome and comfortable. For Ina, it's friends and family - gathered around the dinner table or cooking with her in the kitchen - that really make her house feel like a home. Here Ina offers the tried-and-true recipes that she makes over and over again because they're easy, they work, and they're universally loved. For a leisurely Sunday breakfast, she has Easy Cheese Danishes or Breakfast Fruit Crunch to serve with the perfect Spicy Bloody Mary. For lunch, she has classics with a twist, such as Tomato, Mozzarella, and Pesto Panini and Old-Fashioned Potato Salad, which are simply delicious. Then there are Ina's homey dinners - from her own version of loin of pork stuffed with sautéed fennel to the exotic flavours of Eli's Asian Salmon. And since Ina knows no one ever forgets what you serve for dessert, she includes recipes for outrageously luscious sweets like Peach and Blueberry Crumble, Pumpkin Mousse Parfait, and Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Icing. Ina also lets readers in on her time-tested strategies for cooking and entertaining. Get the inside scoop on everything from what Ina considers when she's designing a kitchen to menu-planning basics and how to make a dinner party fun (here's a hint: it doesn't involve making complicated food!). Along with beautiful photographs of Ina's dishes, her home, and the East Hampton she loves, this book is filled with signature recipes that strike the perfect balance between elegance and casual comfort. With her most indispensible collection yet, Ina Garten proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there truly is no place like home.show more
