Ina's recipies always turn out perfect the first time I try them. The recipies are easy to understand and reproduce even for a novice cook. I get the most consistent results from Ina's books and I love them all. I really love that she includes tips on planning the meals and dinner parties as well. This is a great cookbook and I highly recommend it!

Ina is great on TV. I love the photos in her cookbooks--I have 2 of them. I've tried several recipes in this book, and they have failed miserably. They're not difficult--but they have fundamental flaws. It is infuriating to 'discover' bad recipes when entertaining on a special occasion. I was so upset, I almost threw the book in the trash (and I've never even contemplated that--I love my cookbooks). I like Sally Schneider's book, The Improvisational Cook, Martha Stewart, Tyler Florence, and Cook's Illustrated books much better--they deliver consistently good results.

    My favorite Food Network Personality

    Ina Garten is my favorite Food Network personality. I love the way she takes elegant food and makes is simple to prepare. I also appreciate her ability to re-create dishes to suit available fresh ingredients. LOVE this cookbook.
