In this stunning book, Ina celebrates a relaxed and innovative style of entertaining that is as much of a joy for the host and hostess as it is for the guests.
Arranged by season, Ina's 16 parties are more about assembling food than about cooking for hours. The Not Thanksgiving Dinner transplants the turkey from its November trimmings and makes it a lighter, any-time-of-the-year treat. The California Pizza Party is just made for good times. And the Academy Awards Party for friends puts a whole new spin on the idea of TV dinners.
Tips from Ina's 20 years' catering experience place the emphasis on fun, not fuss. And the recipes are just what the countless fans of Ina's first book are hoping for--fabulous soups, salads and main courses (Butternut Squash with Apple Soup, Tomato Fennel Salad, and big bowls of Chicken Chili, for instance!) And the desserts! Chocolate Ganache Cake is a highlight. But so is the Lemon Cake that was first pictured so irresistibly in Ina's first book.
All of Ina's fans are hungry for more--and lots of other people who love to have a good time are about to have a great time discovering this entertaining star.
In 1978, Ina Garten left her job as a budget analyst in the White House to pursue her dream: operating a specialty food store in the Hamptons. Today, the Barefoot Contessa is celebrated for its stylish charm as well as its delicious food.
The price is wonderful and affordable for this book. I haven't been able to use this book for parties but pick bits and pieces out for a simple but wonderful dinner. Many of the recipes are for a big crowd... I was able to cut them in half. Love Ina Garten. She's very simple yet elegant at the same time...
BAREFOOT CONTESSA PARTIES completes my cookbook collection from Ina Garten. I am awaiting her latest book due out, I believe, in late October. A somewhat novice cook, I find Ina's recipes and directions to be just what I need to help me muddle through preparing and presenting food at its best. She is a phoenomenal teacher both on the air and on the written page. As I prepare food, I can hear her soft voice leading me every step of the way. Having this particular book on my countertop inspires me to invite and party!
I really bought this book so I could complete my collection but was pleasantly surprised that it was not the usual party cookbook but had so many wonderful everyday recipes that didn't need a special occasion. Ina Garten is the Master and my favorite of all cooks on TV.
I just love Ina Garten. Her ideas and receipes are just the best. I collect her books and I never miss her shows!

When serving chicken to a crowd, think about 6 ounces of boneless meat per person or 8 ounces of bone-in. A 3-pound whole chicken should feed between 2 and 4 people, depending on what else you serve.
