The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook Review
The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook is a great cookbook with some really good recipes that may be prepared in a reasonable amount of time. The filet of beef bourguignon is a must try recipe! I did go with way less than 3lbs for two people, I purchased 1.25lbs and there was plenty leftover for another full meal.
And about the photos, I know the color photos add to the cost and bulk of a cookbook, but when they are beautifully done, as is the case with this book, it makes you want to try the recipes. On the other hand, I’ve got some gorgeous cookbooks with some stinker recipes in them. That’s another reason why I love The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. You get beautiful photos and really good recipes.
The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook is plain and simple to understand and is a great starter book for new cooks or people just starting to cook at home. She has great, cheap recipes in here and they are healthy options. I recommend The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook to anyone who wants to learn how to cook simple, healthy, cheap meals.
