Barefoot Contessa at Home: Everyday Recipes You’ll Make Over and Over Again

Author:

My Barefoot Contessa cookbooks are well-loved and notably worse for wear. From the publisher: "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. 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. 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!). This book is filled with signature recipes that strike the perfect balance between elegance and casual comfort."

Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks

Author:

My Barefoot Contessa cookbooks are well-loved and notably worse for wear. From the publisher: "In this collection of foolproof recipes, Ina brings readers’ cooking know-how to the next level by answering questions, teaching techniques, and explaining her process right in the margin of each recipe—it’s as if she's in the kitchen by your side guiding you through the recipe. When you make her Cauliflower Toasts with prosciutto and Gruyère, she shows you the best way to cut a cauliflower into perfect florets without getting them all over the kitchen (from the stem end, with the head turned upside-down!) and when making her Red Wine–Braised Short Ribs, Ina shares a fantastic tip for keeping your stovetop clean (roast the short ribs in the oven rather than browning them in a pan on the stove!). Both beginners and advanced cooks will love this book filled with new dishes that will become part of your repertoire and practical cooking advice that will give you more confidence in the kitchen."
