Go-To Dinners

Ina Garten (Modern Comfort Food; Barefoot Contessa Foolproof) has long been known for making food beautiful, whether on her cooking show or in her many cookbooks. But, as Garten explains in Go-To Dinners, the pandemic has changed the way she cooks. Due to supply-chain issues and the unpredictability of social occasions, Garten has found herself turning to plainer meals, ones that are simple to prep in advance or that generate leftovers. This cookbook, full of luscious photos of delicious food, reflects this simpler style of cooking. The Breakfast-for-Dinner Board and French Bistro Salad are more about assembly than cooking. A Hasselback Kielbasa is easy to make one night of the week, and the leftovers can be added to Tuscan White Bean Soup the next. Go-To Dinners, with no-nonsense recipes tasty enough for any chef, is the perfect addition to any cookbook library. --Jessica Howard, freelance book reviewer
