I used to watch Ina with my mom + grandma all the time - we loved her (still do). She embodies so many of the things I feel the most strongly about in food + cooking. Food should be delicious first, not to be afraid to try new things, and (of course) that butter is king ("How good is that?!").

One of my go-to cookbooks and authors for entertaining: Ina’s recipes work every time, fill the space between decadent and simple perfectly, and are never too intimidating or complicated. Ina changed the way I think about cooking as much as anyone.

Before Food Network - Ina at her best. This food in this book is so much more than food - it captures a moment and a feeling that I feel nostalgic for even though I really only experienced the moment and the feeling through Ina.

A simple well tested cookbook, who doesn’t love Ina.
