Let's check 'em out.
Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients (Releases Oct. 28)
"Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics is the essential Ina Garten cookbook, focusing on the techniques behind her elegant food and easy entertaining style, and offering nearly a hundred brand-new recipes that will become trusted favorites."
I love staring at the pictures in Ina's cookbooks. Pretty pretty. But why is Ina's collar unpopped?!
Tyler Florence: Stirring the Pot (Releases Oct. 21)
"A hands-on guide to help readers fall in love with their kitchen again. Inspiration for home cooks to reach that 'light bulb moment.'”
According to Amazon, each recipe has a photo. Yay. Wouldn't it be great if he had even more books coming out, though?
Tyler Florence: Dinner at My Place (Releases Oct. 21)
"A peek into life at home with Tyler. He shares the dishes he likes to prepare for his family and friends when he's off the clock. The table of contents is organized by occasion, such as his son's first birthday party, a romantic meal for two, Christmas dinner for the whole Florence family, and a simple meal for a rainy Sunday afternoon."
Two books coming out on the same day? Tyler must be working hard. Maybe he'll be like Tupac and continue to release books years after his death! Who knows how that'll happen, but I'm sure someone's thinking of it (Rachael, perhaps?). Sorry for the morbidness.
Giada's Kitchen: New Italian Favorites (Releases Sep. 30)
"She’s taught us every facet of Italian cooking—from traditional and regional to seasonal and contemporary. She even made us fall in love with pasta again by opening us up to lighter, healthier versions that don’t weigh us down. Now the Food Network star and bestselling author of Everyday Pasta, Giada De Laurentiis, takes us down a new path, sharing her love of food with clean, vibrant, simple flavors and bursts of bright colors that look as beautiful on the plate as they are delicious."
Not really loving the photo choice for this book. She looks like she's just about to really smile. Maybe they deemed the natural large smile just too large for the book cover?
Any of them you plan on buying? Ones you'd only buy if you went to a book signing and got to meet the author?
I haven't heard anything about book tours yet, but I'll be sure to post any info I get if/when I receive it.
As far as commenting goes, I'm pretty lenient about most things. I make every effort to remove ones I find blatanly offensive or crude (especially if it's not even related to the post). But I'm not the comment police. Please read through them at your own risk. If a comment is still up that you find offensive, it's not that I don't necessarily feel the same way... I might just not have gotten to the computer yet. Or perhaps a lot of time has passed and I've forgotten.
I'm still out of town, so I might be a little slow getting to the "delete" button for a few days. Anyhow, hope everyone's enjoying their holiday weekend (if you live in the USA)!
