In her new cookbook, Cook Like a Pro, Ina Garten shares a brand-new collection of recipes, tips, and techniques, so readers can cook with confidence no matter how much experience they have in the kitchen.

As America’s most trusted and beloved cookbook author, Ina Garten–the Barefoot Contessa–has taught millions of people how to cook. A home cook at heart, Ina knows that cooking and entertaining can be difficult, so to make her recipes simple and streamlined, she tests and retests each recipe until it’s as straightforward and delicious as possible. Although Ina is completely self-taught and doesn’t consider herself to be a “professional” cook, she has spent decades working with chefs and learning the techniques that take their cooking to the next level. In Cook Like a Pro, Ina shares some of her most irresistible recipes and very best “pro tips,” from the secret to making her custardy, slow-cooked Truffled Scrambled Eggs to the key to the crispiest and juiciest Fried Chicken Sandwiches. Ina will even show you how to make an easy yet showstopping pattern for her Chocolate Chevron Cake–your friends won’t believe you decorated it yourself!

For Ina, cooking like a pro also means hosting like a pro, and along with know-how like how to tell when a filet of beef is perfectly cooked, you’ll find dozens of other great ideas to boost your cooking and entertaining skills such as how to set up an elegant home bar and how to make an impressive Raspberry Baked Alaska that can be completely prepared ahead of time so all you need to do is finish it for your guests before serving. Beginner and advanced cooks alike will love Ina’s delectable recipes, and if you have questions along the way, don’t worry–Ina’s practical cooking advice talks you through every detail, as though she were right there by your side.

With beautiful photos and a treasury of pro tips that span prepping, making, and serving, as Ina says, “You don’t have to be a pro to cook like one!”

Not a worthwhile Cookbook Through Ina Gartnen, I have learned how to make a great chocolat pudding cake, baked eggs, sophisticated cocktails, how to entertain and set a tale. She is a joy to watch on her cooking show. Until this book, Cook Like a Pro (and I have all of her books), she has been a pro, but this time around, the book is filled with usless recipes where even finding the rubarb, the abundance of figs, cekery root, and would need more eggplant than my super-makret stpcks jn eggplant season. Seriously, Ina,…

A MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT! I have followed Ina for YEARS, and she literally has changed the way I cook and also entertain. So, because of how highly I regard her, I was really looking forward to this new book of hers, and to feel inspired again in the kitchen. This book is so weak on every level, I actually came away DEPRESSED after reading through it. Really, Ina? This is all you could come up with? A handful of lousy recipes? We all know that Ina Garten can cook like a pro. But this time out? She certainly…

Pro Tips tend to be common sense with few that are helpful It is difficult not to like Ina Garten from the personality she projects on her cooking show. She and her husband seem to have made an idyllic life with a gorgeous estate in East Hampton, apartments in New York City and Paris, and many friends understandably willing to converge in their newish “barn” to chow down on some good eats.Ina’s cookbooks are based on a winning formula: easy high caloric recipes that are often winners and are accompanied by a plethora of glorious photographs…
