“I have an advanced copy of this cookbook - Ina Garten’s 10th - and I’m looking at it right now.
Of course it’s packed with pages and pages of the most luscious food photography ever, and swoon-worthy recipes she and Jeffrey and all their friends have loved the most, like fresh corn pancakes, and herb & apple bread pudding. But I can’t stop re-reading her warmly-written essays about her life with Jeffrey: from their first date when she was in high school and he in college (with a cute photo of them both, posing on the tennis court), all the way until now. Wow for me was reading her story of how he supported her madly when cooking-crazy Ina came across a newspaper ad in 1978 for a specialty food shop for sale in the Hamptons (a place she’d never been), called the Barefoot Contessa. Two days later, she and Jeffrey drove out to see it, and a few hours after that, she owned the business that would make her world-famous. Can you stand it? The thing Ina does best is make everything seem do-able + delightful. This book is a must have for all Ina-fans!”
