From the Inside Flap
For Ina, the best way to make guests feel at home is to serve them food that?s as unpretentious as it is delicious. So in her new book, she?s collected the recipes that please her friends and family most?dishes like East Hampton Clam Chowder, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, and Linguine with Shrimp Scampi. It?s the kind of fresh, accessible food that?s meant to be passed around the table in big bowls or platters and enjoyed with warm conversation and laughter.
In Ina?s hands tried-and-true dishes are even more delicious than you remember them: Her arugula salad is bright with the flavors of lemon and Parmesan, the Oven-Fried Chicken is crispy without excess fat, and her Deep-Dish Apple Pie has the perfect balance of fruit and spice. Barefoot Contessa Family Style also includes enticing recipes that are memorable and distinctive, like Lobster Cobb Salad, Tequila Lime Chicken, and Saffron Risotto with Butternut Squash.
With vivid photographs of Ina cooking and serving food in her beautiful Hamptons home, as well as menu suggestions, practical wisdom on what to do when disaster strikes in the kitchen, and tips on creating an inviting ambience with music, Barefoot Contessa Family Style is the must-have guide to the joy of everyday entertaining.

IG is not, as a reviewer of one of her other books said on Amazon, a writer for the "inexperienced cook". She's a writer for every cook regardless of experience - no-one is too experienced to learn more.
OK, so she's an American writing for Americans but the British cook can adapt and substitute and the measurements aren't rocket science. I think you can understand these better if you are used to cooking in ounces because that's what American cups are based on but it's possible to buy proper American standard measuring cups from the E--- auction site. They are sold by a commercial catering supplier in the USA and are very reasonably priced even taking p&p into account.
Really looking forward to entertaining from this book.
