In Cook Like a Pro,
the New York Times
bestselling author and James Beard
Award-winning chef offers up an all new compilation of recipes, tips, and techniques that will bolster readers' confidence in the kitchen. Geared towards chefs of all abilities, the Food Network
star shares some of her most mouth-watering recipes and top "pro tips" - that cover everything from how to make her custardy, slow-cooked Truffled Scrambled Eggs or achieve the crispiest yet juiciest Fried Chicken Sandwiches. For those looking to really impress guests, there's Ina's Chocolate Chevron
Cake, that boasts an "easy yet showstopping pattern" which "your friends won't believe you decorated it yourself!" Not sure how to tell when a filet of beef is done? Ina's got you covered. There's even entertaining tips - like how to curate a chic home bar. For those that prefer to make it ahead - another thing Ina's a pro at - Cook Like a Pro
features a Raspberry Baked Alaska that can be prepared completely ahead of time.
"It's filled with delicious, easy recipes like Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs, Crispy Mustard Chicken & Frisée, and Salted Caramel Sundaes that I think you'll love, plus lots of tips, tricks and techniques that will help you cook the way the pros do!" Garten notes on her website. "I hope you love this book!"
It even includes a recipe from local favorite Chef Michael Rozzi of The 1770 House
"Ina's practical cooking advice talks you through every detail, as though she were right there by your side," the book's description notes.
So as Ina says, "You don't have to be a pro to cook like one!"
