Book Description

14 Feb 2013

In Barefoot Contessa Family Style, Ina Garten explains that sharing our tables with those we love is too essential to be saved just for special occasions - and it's easy to do if you know how to cook irresistible meals with a minimum of fuss.

For Ina, the best way to make guests feel at home is to serve them food that is as unpretentious as it is delicious. So in Family Style she's collected the recipes that please her friends and family most - dishes like East Hampton Clam Chowder, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, Linguine with Shrimp Scampi and Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash. It's the kind of fresh, accessible food that's meant to be passed around in big bowls or platters and enjoyed with warm conversation and laughter. Packed with fabulous colour photographs, as well as menu suggestions and practical wisdom on what to do if disaster strikes, this is the must-have guide to the joy of everyday entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice balance of recipes 24 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover
Before we start, I have to confess I am a little enamoured of Ina Garten. Ina, and Ree (The Pioneer Woman) are two of my favourite US cooks around today. They are similar in that they produce really tasty recipes, have a passion for great tasting food, and are fearless when it comes to not sacrificing flavour for calories. That is not to say that all their recipes are laden with fat, but that they appreciate sometimes there is just no substitute for flavour.

Ina Garten left an unfulfilling government position in the 70's to purchase a speciality food shop in New York called The Barefoot Contessa. Under her management it grew in popularity, then in 1999, she brought out her first recipe book and hasn't looked back since. With successful TV shows, countless recipe books and a massive following, Ina Garten is one of the most popular TV chefs around today.

This is her ninth recipe book, and as the subtitle Family Style suggests, the focus here is on cooking for your loved ones. There are a couple of introduction chapters, with some charming anecdotes about the importance of setting the scene and planning.

There follows seven chapters of recipes broke down into categories such as starters, salads, desserts and breakfast. There are then a few chapters that list ingredients Ina thinks you should always have in stock, and equipment that you should have in your kitchen. The final chapter is a series of meal plans to give you some inspiration on how to use the recipes within.

The recipes themselves are very much Ina's style, and one of the reasons I like her. They are unpretentious, and not too complicated. They can be served for intimate family gatherings or to entertain extended family or close friends.
