Barefoot Contessa Family StyleBook - 2012
In Barefoot Contessa Family Style , Ina Garten explains that sharing our tables with those we love is too essential to be saved just for special occasions - and it's easy to do if you know how to cook irresistible meals with a minimum of fuss.
For Ina, the best way to make guests feel at home is to serve them food that is as unpretentious as it is delicious. So in Family Style she's collected the recipes that please her friends and family most - dishes like East Hampton Clam Chowder, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, Linguine with Shrimp Scampi and Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash . It's the kind of fresh, accessible food that's meant to be passed around in big bowls or platters and enjoyed with warm conversation and laughter. Packed with fabulous colour photographs, as well as menu suggestions and practical wisdom on what to do if disaster strikes, this is the must-have guide to the joy of everyday entertaining.
