How good is that?

I have, finally, taken the plunge. With the prospect of a half a day in nursery/reception tomorrow, I have invested my not-yet hard earned cash in a couple of Barefoot contessa books, her At Home and Barefoot in Paris, one to arrive next week, the other next month. Nicely timed, isn't it? And a couple of Trish Deseine books, the Nobody does it Better book as featured in the Mail on Sunday (available for less than half price on Amazon) and one of her french cookbooks.... yes, that's right, it's actually in french, but I couldn't resist the title; Ma petite Robe noire et autre recettes. Yes, a little black dress book; How good is that?

  8. I am so embarrassed to say I don't own any of her cookbooks personally, but we've sold oodles of them in our cookshop! When the books first came out, we had a very hard time keeping them on the shelves because they were selling so quickly! Have fun cooking - I can't wait to hear how the recipes turn out! =)

  9. I ADORE the Barefoot Contessa. Its the only show left on foodnetwork that has kept its small origins and good "roots"- all the other hosts have become so "pop". Plus, shes gorgeous! My mom regularly whines and says "why can't I have her hair???"

    I do still like Alton Brown, too.

    Anyhoo, Ina's recipe for caviar dip is one of my very favorite holiday dips for entertaining. Its very light considering the contents, and displays so beautifully!
