Here is a book that lives up to its subtitle—great ideas that really are easy to do on your own and really are fun. Ina Garten, of the Barefoot Contessa fame, has lots of experience with parties, those she’s catered from her specialty food shop, and many of her own at her East Hampton home. Ina Garten really delivers on her promise, “With so many great ideas and recipes in these pages for you to use, your friends will start to wonder why your parties are always so much fun.” Lobster Rolls for a Superbowl party, Filet of beef with oh-so-good Gorgonzola Sauce for a fancy dinner, every dish is doable and sure to please, every menu perfectly conceived and executed. This is food we know and love fancied up, but not too fancy—Caesar Salad with Pancetta, Butternut Squash and Apple Soup, California Pizzas. The stunning photographs for most every dish make it all the easier, also giving us some great presentation ideas.
In her introduction Ina says, “I hope that you’ll use this book to discover new ways to have parties that will send your friends home saying those magic words: ‘That was the best party I’ve been to in years!’” With Ina’s cookbooks, you’ll be inspired to get out your phone book and call your friends over to party!
