#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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 cozy 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 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 Paninis 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 flavors 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 secrets 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 indispensable collection yet, Ina Garten proves beyond a shadow of doubt that there truly is no place like home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A True Classic! The fact that almost every recipe received perfect scores confirms what I already knew: Ina Garten’s cookbooks belong in everyone’s kitchen. Granted this cookbook is heavy on the desserts section and some of the recipes might be considered a little too basic for more seasoned chefs, but for a new cook wanting to stretch their culinary muscles this book is perfect! It provides you with delicious, good solid comfort food without being pretentious. I also like how at the back of the book she includes a number of menu ideas, an addition which many people will no doubt find inspiring when putting together a dinner party.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for everybody I bought this book for my mom who wasn't a big "Ina Garten" fan... well, believe or not, I had to buy her all the other books from Ina Garten! I am buying another one for me, because she doesn't want to share !!! She promised me to buy me the others for my birthday. I would recommend this book to anybody. Recipes are delighful, easy to do, ingredients are easy to find, this is the perfect cook book for people that love good food...it's everything except pretentious.

Tons of recipes you will actually make and amazing pictures that inspire you to try them out! I love her other cookbooks and I can honestly say they are recipes I make over and over again! Simple ingredients but full of flavor.
