I had made a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa for Rao's spaghetti and meatballs which was a huge hit, so when I saw that they had a new cookbook I jumped on it. Just this past weekend I made a huge meal, three of the five courses were recipes from this cookbook; my guests went crazy. Never have I had such success from one single source. I plan on buying this for several people this Christmas (and I hope they invite me over for dinner!).
DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THIS SELLER. HORRIBLE. CAN'T GET A RESPONSE AS TO WHERE AN ORDER I PLACED ON 8/21/12 IS AND TODAY IS 9/8/12. ORDER IS SUPPOSEDLY COMING FROM FLORIDA AND I LIVE IN NJ NOT IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. I DON'T EVEN WANT THIS COOKBOOK ANYMORE BECAUSE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR A FRIEND FOR THIS EVENING AND SADLY THE BOOK NEVER ARRIVED! RIDICULOUS
