The Barefoot Contessa is back, and this time it's about the basics. You've been invited to all of her fabulous parties, and now America's hostess with the mostess, Ina Garten, lifts the veil on all her tips, sharing techniques and incredibly elegant and easy recipes. Ina throws open the doors of her Hamptons home for more delicious food, dazzling ideas and good fun.
It's all parmesan all the time in Ina Garten's kitchen. Crispy, delicious Lemon Parmesan Chicken gets a double hit of the flavorful cheese, and it adds the wow factor to Ina's Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage. Parmesan can take both side dishes and salads to a whole new level, as Ina shows with Parmesan Chive Smashed Potatoes and Celery and Parmesan Salad. It also stars in three of her easiest canapes: Parmesan Shards, Parmesan Crisps, and Parmesan and Chipotle Popcorn.
For Ina Garten, good vanilla extract makes all the difference. That's why she makes her own homemade extract and then uses it in a show-stopping Vanilla Rum Panna Cotta with Salted Caramel. She whips up a batch of Vanilla Shortbread Hearts with a vanilla glaze and bakes her moist and delicious Vanilla Cream Cheese Pound Cake. Finally, a cup of White Hot Chocolate hits the spot.
Dessert is good, but for Ina Garten, tipsy desserts are even better. She uses sparkling white wine to add a little zing to Moscato Poached Fruit that can be made in advance. Bourbon is the secret to her decadent Bourbon Honey Cake, and Armagnac brandy is magical in Ina's Plum Clafoutis. A refreshing Campari and Orange Granita takes dessert to a new level, and Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten shows how to make Chocolate Rum Pudding with Candied Violets.
Ina Garten is focusing on easy French food that you can make at home. First, her Easy Coquilles Saint Jacques is a typical French bistro take on scallops. A classic French cheese board that includes Herbed Goat Cheese and a toasted baguette is perfectly paired with Ina's Green Salad with the Ultimate French Vinaigrette. Her fancy Raspberry Tart only looks difficult to make, and a French 75 cocktail will make you think you're in France. World-famous chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud shares the secret to a perfect French Charcuterie Platter.
Ina Garten is finding new ways to turn the volume up on American classics. She starts by combining coffee chipotle chili powder and red pepper flakes for a spicy dry rub on Grilled New York Strip Steaks, and she cools things off with a Crunchy Iceberg Salad with Creamy Blue Cheese. Ina uses buttermilk for foolproof Fried Chicken and takes a clever shortcut with Peanut Butter and Fudge Ice Cream Sandwiches. For cocktail hour, she mixes up Dark Rum Southsides, and Bobby Flay shows how to make a very grown-up Vanilla Caramel Bourbon Milkshake.
