Excellent Book for Foolproof Entertaining,
This review is from: Barefoot Contessa Parties! Ideas and Recipes for Easy Parties That Are Really Fun (Hardcover)
Ina Garten has brought sanity and great food to entertaining at home.
The great thing about this book is the style everything is served and prepared in, though it uses a bit more fat than I would cook with for everyday meals. She is a friend of Martha Stewart but her recipes are very un-Martha like in preparation. Ina does not have a staff of hundreds to make everything just perfect for that dinner party for the magazine. This lady runs a business on her culinary skill - she does what works with a minimum amount of fuss - it tastes wonderful AND looks great.
I have received rave reviews for the Sour Cream Coffee Cake, the Happy Birthday! meal, and the Chocolate Ganache Cake. The Chocolate Cake went over big. It was so easy to make, it was an afterthought while putting together a meal for six at the very last minute.
You will not be disappointed with this cookbook.

Thank you for this review. I am a big fan of hers but have shy'd away from purchasing cook books because of the complexities of the dishes. This will be a great start.
