Best-selling cookbook author and Food Network host Ina Garten is known for adding a special twist to familiar dishes while also streamlining the recipes so that you spend less time in the kitchen but still emerge with perfection. And that's exactly what she offers in Barefoot in Paris. Ina's kir royale includes the unique addition of raspberry liqueur, a refreshing alternative to the traditional créme de cassis. Her vichyssoise is brightened with the addition of zucchini, and her chocolate mousse is deeply flavored with the essence of orange. All of these dishes are true to their Parisian roots, but all offer something special and are thoroughly delicious, completely accessible, and the perfect fare for friends and family.
