I gave this book to my sweetheart for her birthday. She has three other Ina Garten books so I knew she'd like it. Garten's are not conventional cookbooks. Recipes typically occupy a single page, are mouthwateringly illustrated, and simplify culinary technique. We hosted a holiday party the next day and decided to prepare one of Barefoot in Paris's easier recipes. We picked baked slab bacon coated with chopped walnuts and maple syrup. Yikes!
My church had a auction and I offered to cook a french dinner party for 6 with a theme Evening in Paris. Once the bid went out of control I realized I was in trouble, how am I going to prepare a french dinner for 6 people who just spent their retirement fund on this auction? I found Ina's book on Amazon and bought it. I am so excited, there are so many french receipes in it and I taste tested some of them with my family. This book is a must have if you want to prepare french food without having to take a professional cooking class. It works! Buy it on Amazon

Barefoot in Paris is organized in to sections; to start, lunch, soup and salad, dinner, vegetables, and dessert. My MUST MAKE, standout recipes include:
Lunch Herbed-Baked Eggs (finally the whole family, brunch party, etc. can sit down and enjoy eggs together-- and what winning eggs!)
Dinner Lemon Chicken with Croutons (do not miss out on this recipe-- it is truly outstanding, the best chicken dish I have ever made-- easy to make but still perfect for special dinner guests)
Dessert Coeur a la creme with Raspberries (a great, easy, impressive, different dessert and one I will make again and again) Elephant Ears (aka Palmiers-- these couldn't be easier to make and they are a crowd pleaser-- I serve them alone as a sweet appetizer or with ice...
