For Ina Garten, creating a successful meal has nothing to do with what's in vogue; it's all about what's readily available, in season, and easy to prepare. In Back to Basics Ina explores how to bring the best out of ordinary ingredients for delicious meals that have that extra wow factor we've all come to expect from the Barefoot Contessa.
Which ingredient unlocks the purest chocolate flavor in brownie pudding? What twist makes an old favorite like tomato Caprese salad truly unique? How can you amp up the impact of butternut squash soup without overpowering the true butternut squash flavor? It's not always about finding the most exotic or costly ingredients--it's about finding the methods and flavor pairings that unlock the essence of good food.
Newcomers and longtime fans alike will love Ina's insights on building a menu, finishing a dish, and setting the scene for dinner, and an inspired roster of all-new recipes--ranging from Lobster Corn Chowder to Fresh Lemon Mousse and Easy Sticky Buns--demonstrates Ina's talent for transforming fresh, easy-to-find ingredients into an elegant meal without fuss or complications.
Ina's five previous bestselling cookbooks have sold an astonishing 6 million copies, and have inspired a show seen daily on Food Network and a line of packaged food products.
I love all of Ina's cookbooks! I think this one is great because she focus's on the most important aspect of the food she is using and getting the most flavor and enjoyment out of it.
I love Ina's cookbook Back to Basics. It truly lives up to the name, but the basics recipes are enhanced to give the most flavor and richness to each dish. It's bound to become well used and full of splotches and drips!
Actually, Food Network, I purchased Ina's latest book as a gift for my sister. She adores Ina (and weirdly she kinda looks like her too!). So to be honest, I did not look inside of this cookbook. BUT...I have borrowed her other books and utilize some of her recipes. She is a fabulous cook. I know my sister will be thrilled with Ina's latest work. Your ease of shopping over the internet was great, the book was delivered in a timely fashion.......no problems. I would buy from you again. As for Ina, her cooking is attainable. She makes simple ingredients taste (and look) over-the-top. My sister is a most excellent cook and has a super knack with herbs and extracting wonderful flavors from the basic foods herself. Ina only fuels my sister's love of cooking. I can't wait to thumb through her new book myself. Thanks Food Network.
In Ina Garten's Back to Basics cookbook, you find the same easy to follow, beautiful to look at and delicious to eat recipes. She answers a lot of basic cooking questions as well as offers insight to her cooking philosophy. It's a wonderful cookbook...even if you don't cook, looking at the beautiful pictures is worth the price!!
The receipes are new takes on favorites. The pictures are wonderful and receipes easy to follow. The fact that they are basic makes the book a great gift for a budding new cook. Ina is an excellent teacher.
