    Ina Garten's cookbooks do everything you need. If I didn't have any technique in the kitchen and had to pick a cookbook to last forever (or in this case, a series) it would be hers. Rich, lovely recipes that are very approachable. Beginners can follow along; experts can take some of her suggestions ...

    I cook 3 meals a day for my family, and I love the Barefoot Contessa Cookbooks. She's got great advice on preparing things ahead of time, how to cook for a larger group, and putting together a complete meal. Her recipes are best for people who are already pretty comfortable in the kitchen, and the b...

    This is by far my favorite cookbook. The pages are stuck together I use it so much. Curried coucous? Yes, please!...

    Listen, the woman knows her way around the kitchen and she's not afraid of a stick of butter, which I like in a chef.

    I love a simple well-tested cookbook. Preparations had the right amount of details and shortcuts where appropriate. Ina knows how to take care of her home cooks. Here are the dishes I've tasted and the cookbook club cooks who made them:Sheela - Lobster Salad in Endive: You can't go wrong with qualit...

    During a particularly challenging time in my life, I found and fell in love with Ina. Many of her recipes are staples in my cooking repertoire, and I have yet to find a Barefoot Contessa cookbook that I don't thoroughly enjoy. Great for ANY kitchen and cook!!!...

    Ina Garten is such a good cook. Too much sugar, too much butter, too much oil (too much Jeffrey), but it all tastes good and is good, solid fare. Decrease the sugar and fat and you end up with a reliably good recipe always....

    Here's why I like Ina Garten's recipes. They are simple but use the highest quality ingredients she can find. Here's what's happened to cooks in America. They are simply assembling the cheapest "edible" ingredients. I know. Not everyone. I love the Garten is clear about exactly which ingredients mak...
