    • I have all of Ina’s cookbooks and love them. Unfortunately her latest cookbook is bitterly disappointing. I always loved her simplistic way of cooking. Ina’s older recipes appealed to everyone’s taste. This new one is a far cry from the other cookbooks. The recipes are for a more sophisticated palette and the recipes produces meals my family and friends do not care for. Lots of recipes that I will never make are in this new cookbook. If I could have I would have given this cookbook no stars.
    • What a let-down. The book is full of basic, uninspired recipes for basic things: chicken stock, panna cotta, etc. Basic recipes that have already been mastered by many other chefs. There are no “pro tips and tricks” included in the book. The few exciting recipes have already been released online to promote the book. A good handful aren’t even her recipes. Totally disappointing and I’ll think twice before pre-ordering her next book.
    • After receiving my copy, I was very unhappy to see that she has, instead of just of promoting her book, taken the opportunity to make cheap shots about politics. I don't care what her politics are but would not have bought her book if I had known she was going to using its publicity to make a political stand.
    • I’ve just gone through the the book from start to finish. I was so excited to receive it. But the recipes are disappointing. Many are reworked versions of her previous recipes. Sadly, I think chefs run out of ideas and I think Ina has too
    • I've made three recipes from this book within the first week of having it, and they have all been delicious. The book is almost worthy of "coffee table" status just for the amazing photos. I do agree that some the recipes are very similar to others from previous "Barefoot Contessa" books. However, the directions are clear, the recipes are not difficult to make, and the end results are very satisfying. I don't have the budget for 3 pound filet of beef or lobster regularly, so it will be a while before I get around to trying some of the more "upscale" recipes, but I look forward to trying them for a special occassion.
