From the Publisher
Millions of people love Ina Garten because she writes recipes that
make home cooks look great; family and friends shower them with
praise and yet the dishes couldn't be simpler to prepare using
ingredients found in any grocery store. In Barefoot Contessa
Foolproof, the Food Network star takes easy a step further,
sharing her secrets for pulling off deeply satisfying meals that
have that "wow!" factor we all crave.
Start with delicious Dukes Cosmopolitans made with freshly squeezed
lemon juice, plus Jalapeño Cheddar Crackers that everyone will
devour. Lunches include Hot Smoked Salmon, Lobster & Potato
Salad, and Easy Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons, all
featuring old-fashioned flavors with the volume turned up. Elegant
Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef with Basil Parmesan Mayonnaise and
show-stopping Seared Scallops & Potato Celery Root Purée are
just two of the many fabulous dinner recipes. And your guests will
always remember the desserts, from Sticky Toffee Date Cake with
Bourbon Glaze to Salted Caramel Brownies.
For Ina, "foolproof" means more than just making one dish
successfully; it's also about planning a menu, including
coordinating everything so it all gets to the table at the same
time. In Barefoot Contessa Foolproof, Ina shows you how to
make a game plan so everything is served hot while you keep your
cool. There are notes throughout detailing where a recipe can go
wrong to keep you on track, plus tips for making recipes in
advance. It's as though Ina is there in the kitchen with you
