A home cook at heart, Ina Garten 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. Now 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. 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!"

'Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks' is another beautiful book by Ina Garten.
The Cauliflower Toasts look and sound delicious as do the Parmesan Pesto Zucchini Sticks, both of which I will be making in the coming days.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I feel as is I've seen some of these recipes and hints from her before.

This is a beautiful book, absolutely glorious photographs; includes a pro-tip for almost every recipe. It does seem, however, that we have seen many of these recipes before. Perhaps she does recycle her own recipes, and that's OK.... I copied only one recipe (Sauteed savoy cabbage with bacon).
