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.
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.
Ina knows how to do cookbooks! Love her books and recipes -- simple recipes with great pictures.
Good book, lots of tips, it was a gift and I will probably buy one for myself.
I bought this cookbook as a gift for my sister. Ina is her favorite foodnetwork chef. I was so excited to buy a signed book for her. However, I was a little disappointed when the book came because it was not signed--it came with a signed name card just placed in the book instead. I was a little dismayed with that because I thought I had bought a signed book! I ended up gluing the name card onto the first page of the book. This should have been done by the company, and it also should have been made clearer that the book itself was not signed. I paid extra for a signed book. My sister was very excited to receive the gift though. I think I won "Best Gift Ever" award from her this year!
This Ina Garten book is a great primer for the inexperienced cook. It would make a great gift for newlyweds and others who have not spent a lot of time in the kitchen!
