The sixth cookbook from the Barefoot Contessa juggernaut contains exactly the kind of appealing, simple-yet-just-gourmet-enough recipes Garten devotees adore. There’s nothing very surprising (Garten tries to claim an ingredient-focused premise), but her formula works. She offers such dishes as Lobster Corn Chowder, Creamy Cucumber Salad, Tuscan Lemon Chicken, Tagliarelle with Truffle Butter (which has just five ingredients, plus salt and pepper), and Brownie Pudding. Garten suggests tips on such things as setting the table and “10 things not to serve at a dinner party.” Her tone can be charmingly pretentious, but she comes down to earth with admissions like “I have to admit that pastry still makes me anxious. When I discovered puff pastry, it was such a relief.” Recipes are short and simple, and she often squeezes in insightful hints for making things work perfectly. (Oct.)

Grand gifts for gastronomes

Now, get out of that armchair! Ina Garten's newest and possibly best, Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, was put on this earth to cook from. Ina's signature magic is manifest in these marvelously makeable, brand-new recipes (nearly 100). What she means by "basics," is looking at old ideas and finding the best ways to unlock their true flavors, so that the end product is more delicious than ever. And it's a really good-looking package, too.
