Barefoot in Paris: Easy French Food You CAN Make at Home by Ina Garten
Not only are the recipes simple, but so are the page layouts and photographs. There is very little fanfare on the page, emphasizing the theme of simplicity.
My one criticism of the book is that most of these recipes have already made an appearance on her show, so there is nothing new or exciting that Ina brings to this cookbook, other than it's just a collection of her already aired recipes. Seeing as how I can pretty much access all of these recipes on foodnetwork.com, there isn't much motivation for me to actually purchase this cookbook. It is, however, a lovely book to peruse at the bookstore or check out at the library.
