Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food You Can Make at Home: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook Kindle Edition
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.
6 ounces semisweet chocolate
2 ounces good bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup Grand Marnier liquer
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
8 extra-large eggs, at room temperature, seperated
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of kosher salt
1/2 cup cold heavy cream
Whipped cream and mandarin orange segments, for decoration
Combine the two chocolates, Grand Marnier, 1/4 cup water, and the vanilla in a heat-proof bowl. Set it over a pan of simmering water until the chocolate just melts. Cool to room temperature. Whisk in the orange zest and butter until completely combined.
With an electric mixer, beat the egg yolks and 1/2 cup of the sugar on high speed for 4 minutes, or until very thick and pale yellow. With the mixer on low speed, add the chocolate mixture. Transfer to a large bowl. Beat 1 cup of the egg whites, the salt, and 1 tablespoon of the sugar on high speed until firm but not dry. Whisk half of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture; then carefully fold the rest.
Whip the heavy cream and the remaining tablespoon of sugar until firm. Fold the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture. Chill the mousse and decorate with whipped cream and oranges, if using. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

I read it and just loved the in between sections e.g Cheese section & table dressing, quite interesting & different from most cook books. For me the recipes read OK, but the wife really likes it. Photography is very good too.
Negatives are - all her books are designed more towards the American market. There could be a measurement conversion included and little things (this is the wife now) such as the wording i.e 'a stick of butter'? might be better explained or quantified.
All said, this book especially, was interesting and I would not hesitate to recommend. A good buy!
