Barefoot in Paris Read Online Free - Hearty boeuf Bourguignon served in deep bowls over a garlic-rubbed slice of baguette toast; decadently rich croque monsieur, eggy and oozing with cheese; gossamer crème brulee, its sweetness offset by a brittle burnt-sugar topping. Whether shared in a cozy French bistro or in your own home, the romance and enduring appeal of French country cooking is irrefutable. Here is the book that helps you bring that spirit, those evocative dishes, into your own home.
What Ina Garten is known for—on her Food Network show and in her three previous bestselling books—is adding a special twist to familiar dishes, while also streamlining the recipes so you spend less time in the kitchen but still emerge with perfection. And that’s exactly what she offers in Barefoot in Paris. Ina’s kir royale includes the unique addition of raspberry liqueur—a refreshing alternative to the traditional crème de cassis. Her vichyssoise is brightened with the addition of zucchini, and her chocolate mousse is deeply flavored with the essence of orange. All of these dishes are true to their Parisian roots, but all offer something special—and are thoroughly delicious, completely accessible, and the perfect fare for friends and family.
Barefoot in Paris is suffused with Ina’s love of the city, of the bustling outdoor markets and alluring little shops, of the bakeries and fromageries and charcuteries—of the wonderful celebration of food that you find on every street corner, in every neighborhood. So take a trip to Paris with the perfect guide—the Barefoot Contessa herself—in her most personal book yet.

I actually picked up a copy of Ina Garten's cookbook Barefoot in Paris from my local library- instead of buying cookbook after cookbook, I borrow them for the library for a test run, and read through the whole book.
Unsurprisingly, the recipes in this book are fantastic, and the tips on the side m...

Much like one of Emeril's cookbooks I was excited for, this one disappointed me for the same reasons. Unlike Emeril's book though, I had the foresight to check this out from the library before purchasing.
I am a huge Francophile and love anything French. Going to Paris was one of the highlights o...

One of my favorites book to read through when I am feeling a bit uninspired. Unlike many books by famous cooks, this book is full of gorgeous photos of FOOD, rather than pictures of the chef laughing at some unknown joke or the chef with their children or the chef reclining with friends on a couc...

I read cookbooks. I don't know about y'all, but I find that reading cookbooks helps impart the essence of the style of the chef/cook to the actually process of creating the food. Ina Garten is one of my favorite Food Network chefs, but I also appreciate her style, her patience with food and the e...

Some of the recipes don't suit my tastes, but some definitely look worth trying (the pear clafouti and boeuf bourguignon for example), and I appreciated Ina's cheese platter advice. I also love that she included an appendix of stores and restaurants in Paris, although they might be a bit out-of-d...

Ina Garten and French cuisine. An interesting combination! I have a couple other of her cookbooks and have enjoyed a number of the menus that she has published. So, I was intrigued when I saw this volume.
There are some recipes in here that differ from ones that I have tried over time. And that i...

I love Ina Garten. I try her recipes often, and I can honestly say I've never had one turn out badly. The photos in this book are beautiful and the recipes are mostly simple and focus on Ina's theme: good ingredients. In between recipes she gives advice on table settings, traditional French ingre...

I like this book, but not as much as the original Barefoot Contessa cookbook. The recipes were slightly less accessible to me, and I found that there weren't as many that appealed to me.
I really like the recipe for chicken with forty cloves of garlic, however, and her recipe for béarnaise sauce (...

Ina Garten is one of my favorite celebrity chefs. I could hear her voice while I was reading. I have been obsessed with French cooking and saw this at my library. It is definitely one I will be purchasing to add to my cookbook collection. The pictures of all the gorgeous food were amazing. I love...

I really like this cookbook. Little personal stories about the recipes sections, gorgeous color photos of each recipe. Most can be made ahead of time so you are not scrambling around like a crazy person, trying to get dinner on the table. I made the 40 Clove Garlic Chicken (crazy, I know, but AMA...
