Barefoot Contessa Parties
Item #: 0609606441
Barefoot Contessa Parties!: I've always wanted to give great parties. From the time I was married in 1968, I loved planning parties, cooking, and getting together with my friends. But in the beginning, I did some truly awful parties. As time went on I learned what worked and what didn't. I learned that small dinner parties were often more satisfying than big cocktail parties, that easy food meant I would spend more time with my friends and we all had more fun, and that the music at a party is sometimes more important than the food. But most of all, I learned to stay focused: Parties are "recess" for grown-ups, and I want everyone to go home saying: "Wasn't that fun !" So now I plan everything with that goal in mind.

Barefoot in Paris
Item #: 1400049350
Barefoot in Paris: Americans think of French food as fancy food. We think of French restaurants as formal places where we’re always about to commit some hideous breach of etiquette. It’s true that some French food is elaborate and formal, but not all of it. What I love is simple, country French food, and I wanted to cook it in a way that was easy enough for me to use not only at Barefoot Contessa but also for entertaining at home. So, that’s what I did. For dinner, forget all those fancy sauces that either take hours to prepare or have to be made at the last minute when everyone’s hungry. In this book you’ll find plenty of traditional recipes, such as scallops Provencal and chicken with forty cloves of garlic, where the sauce actually happens in the cooking. And then there’s dessert. If you don’t even have ten minutes to make the crème brulee, just remember how French it is to serve a big bowl of fresh raspberries in season with just a dollop of crème fraiche and a cookie.
