    Let s be honest, there is no clinker recipe in any of Ina Garten s books I find myself making her recipes over and over again because I love the food, but even satisfying, the people for whom I m cooking love it as well She is quite simply the home chef for the modern kitchen She bats a 1000 every time she publishes, and I use her recipes over and over again with joy.

    This book was loaned to my daughter in law when she was going through chemo treatments I was trying to help where I could and went through this book while there, to see if there was anything that would appeal to her I have long been a collector of Italian cookbooks and have hundreds I actually read them like others read novels, comparing and learning about the regions, the people and the differences in how they differ in their handling of dishes that are familiar to all regions, including the region where my parents immigrated from When I read through this cookbook and I DID read through it all , I started to put cut up post it strips to return to recipes that sounded very tempting to try both simple and uncomplicated I soon became aware that there were an awful lot of post it strips peeking out at the top an I wasn t nearly through the book I was sure that I wanted it in my cookbook library, in the Other Than Italian collection, although there are so many takes on traditional Italian dishes, that I might consider it a hybrid I would say that it has something for everybody, though I will probably concentrate on the ones that sound familiar to my Italian heritage however, when I try the bread pudding on Page 18, instead of using challah loaf, I am going to substitute my Italian Panettonefrom Italy For Academy Award Night, or any other movie night with friends, I will be trying the Truffled Popcorn , however, since I don t use microwave popcorn, I will use my stove top popper, and pour the white truffle butter over when ready Looking forward to trying the Celery so good for you for Summer parties I never thought to substitute the pizza dough I use when I make Sausage Salami Bread and use puff pastry instead, to make it look really special for a fancier gathering page 70 And as Ina says on page 71, Who knew it was so easy to make ricotta though my mother made it, I wasn t paying attention Ina tells how on page 74 then you can make the herbed ricotta buschettas on Page 73 There is a recipe for those who love cheese and find it acceptable in their diet I first tasted baked cheese when a guest in a private home in the town in Italy where my parents were from since my mother never made it at home, I didn t know how to approach it, but, I watched as others dipped bread into the soft cheese fresh from the oven to the table , and I did likewise OMG heavenly I could hardly wait to serve it to my family at our next get together a winner I don t know how Ina came up with it, but she nailed it.Since I m only on page 98, I will cease to comment on recipes that are posted for trying instead, I ll list ones that I know I will be trying, without commenting Page 98 tuna Page 111 wild rice salad with grapes and nuts and cranberries Page 112 tarragonpotato salad Page 120 lemon chicken breasts one of my staples Page 154 weeknight bolognese Page 157 spaghetti aglio e olio my father s favorite interestingly enough, Ina mentions DeCecco pasta a company that has been making pasta for over 100 years in the Region of Abruzzi, where my parents are from my father also liked to finish off this dish with chopped anchovy sprinkled over Page 173 garlic roasted cauliflower and Page 182 creamy parmesan polenta if I don t have any homemade chicken stock, I ll usea low sodium Organic chicken broth, found in the Stop and Stop natural foods aisle I stay away from canned products which are usually loaded with salt even those marked lower sodium My mother added kidney beans to her soft polenta, which was poured onto a wooden board and served from there she sometimes made a mushroom ragu and poured it over the polenta Polenta was a peasant food and served often in homes of the poor the cooktweaked it in some way for variety Page 191 warm french lentils I think the brown lentils will do In closing, I didn t mean to go on so long with this review, but, I was so captivated, I didn t know where to stop In my humble opinion, this is a great cookbook, and I will be buying again and again, for gifting.

    This is the best cookbook I have bought in a long time I am not a great cook, but I can cook The recipes look amazing and easy to make I like the layout of the book The recipes were not crammed onto one page, but take up two pages Each recipe has a picture.love this Also the recipes are on pages next to each other No need to flip the page to see the rest of the recipe.I made the roasted cauliflower last night because I had cauliflower in the house It was great I am looking forward to trying the other recipes.There were only a few recipes I do not want to try and that is because I do not eat that type of food I will definitely buy cookbooks by Ina Garten.

    Ina Garten s recipes are every bit as good as those of famous chefs of a bygone era Where Julia Child would spend countless hours and even days in food preparation, the Contessa does it with today s cooks in mind those who have jobs, families, and a definite lack of household help.Do you recall being told to read the entire recipe before proceeding Well, do yourself a favor and read the preface before tackling the recipes Garten explains that keeping a well stocked kitchen is essential Go grocery shopping right now She builds her recipes on these items, expecting us to fill in with the perishables as needed She is true to her word about using standard items With the exception of a meal using fois gras for her anniversary her recipes call for things we usually have on hand.The book takes us from appetizers to desserts Without overwhelming the reader with dozens of choices, Garten has carefully culled some of her best recipes to include in each chapter She offers anecdotes and advice, making this book seem almost conversational She tells us how to use shortcuts to achieve the same flavors and looks of tedious methods.As a gourmet cook, I am not easily intimidated by the likes of Child, et al I rank this cookbook easier to use than some of Bon Apetit s recipes It is for a palate well beyond that of Betty Crocker and it certainly is for someone who is ready to entertain with flair minus the fuss.Her style makes entertaining fabulous, not frantic The hostess is supposed to enjoy her company and her recipes help us do just that.
