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.
Just received this new book of Ina's and right out of the box I chose her recipe for Filet of Beef. OMG! Fabulous. Ina never disappoints. Can't wait to dive into Shrimp and Grits this weekend! Please take note of something concerning kosher salt. If you have any other brand besides Diamond Crystal, reduce the amount you use.
I ordered this book as I love the Barefoot Contessa shows and have always wanted to get one of her books. I was so disappointed when it arrived, whilst it is a lovely book I wouldn't be able to use it as the ingredients in a lot of the recipies are way out of my price range. Food writers really need to be aware that most people don't have a bottomless pit of money and are on tight budgets.
With a title like cook like a pro I expected a higher level and standard of content. It lacks in all areas and is not of the quality of her previous books. If I had know of the content I certainly would not have purchased this item, that’s why it’s best to put realistic reviews in place. This one is to be sent to the charity shop.
