October 26, 2004 | Hardcover

Barefoot In Paris: Easy French Food You Can Make at Home is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
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 brulee, its sweetness offset by a brittle burnt-sugar topping. Whether shared in a cozy 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 three 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, and her chocolate mousse is deeply flavored 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 neighborhood. So take a trip to Paris with the perfect guide—the Barefoot Contessa herself—in her most personal book yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy French Cooking at its Best I LOVE cookbooks and this is one of my most favorite because Ina's recipes are easy but the results are so pleasing to both the palate and the eye! A recent dinner party which got "RAVE REVIEWS" from my guests included Ina's Vegetable Tian, the Veal Chops with Roquefort butter, topped off with the Pear Clafouti! The cookbook is well laid out, the photography is exceptional and it makes a superb gift.

I decided to try it with raspberry liqueur and it was even more delicious. When you go to the liquor store, look for the red raspberry liqueur rather than the clear eau-de-vie, which has a totally different flavor. 6 teaspoons raspberry liqueur 1/2 pint fresh raspberries 1 bottle of good Champagne, chilled Pour 1 teaspoon of raspberry liqueur into each champagne glass and add 2 or 3 raspberries. When guests arrive, pop the cork and fill each glass with Champagne. Serve immediately. Kir makes 4 to 6 drinks A kir is an apértif of white wine with a splash of crème de cassis. The cassis adds a hint of fruit and a lovely tinge of pink but it’s not too sweet. I prefer to make them with a crisp, fruity wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc from California or Sancerre fromFrance, but whatever you have on hand is fine. 6 teaspoons crème de cassis liqueur 1 bottle white wine, chilled Pour 1 to 2 teaspoons of crème de cassis into each wine glass and then fill the glass with wine.
