To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love ina garten cookbooks she makes the most difficult things achievable. This book is great if you are planning parties and get togethers, it not only has great recipes, some you can reduce the size of the ingredients for smaller family meals, it gives sound advice on how to plan ahead and get things right taking away the stress. The chapters are seasonal but can be adapted to any time of year and to the size of group you cater for.
have always liked her style of cooking however, am getting irritated when buying her books thinking you are getting the recipe you want, the book then refers to another of her books which you have to buy to get what you want, not happy!
Lovely book with clear pictures and precise recipes. I have several of Ina's books and so therefore I do find that her recipes are repeated occasionally. Nevertheless, I enjoy reading her books and her recipes always work well. I do adjust the salt content as it's far too high.
An American Contessa she may be but in addition Ina Garten lays the foundations for some wonderful parties. The preparation is all pretty easy on us as people and also on our pockets for the ingedients
