Cook Like a Pro: Recipes and Tips for Home Cooks Reviews

  • Mellie Antoinette

    Dang it! Just when I think she can’t possibly do it again ... she does it again! This is filled with stellar tips, delicious vibes and stunning photos. Though she didn’t mention my fave pro tipped learned from Ina (use post its to take notes in your fave cookbooks - cleaner, clearer, easily updatable results), this is still one for the culinary treasure chest.

  • Jay

    As Ina would say. simply Fabulous

    My newest cookbook! I especially like the way some of the recipes make two different meals, such as Baked Pasta with tomatoes and eggplant that becomes Tomato and Eggplant Soup on the next night. She also includes recipes for the side dishes she recommends, such as the Blue Cheese Grits to go with the Red Wine-braised Short Ribs and even condiments like Buttermilk Herb Mayo to go with the recipe for fried chicken sandwiches. Her suggestions really help pull the whole meal together. It's also nic

    My newest cookbook! I especially like the way some of the recipes make two different meals, such as Baked Pasta with tomatoes and eggplant that becomes Tomato and Eggplant Soup on the next night. She also includes recipes for the side dishes she recommends, such as the Blue Cheese Grits to go with the Red Wine-braised Short Ribs and even condiments like Buttermilk Herb Mayo to go with the recipe for fried chicken sandwiches. Her suggestions really help pull the whole meal together. It's also nice to have so many recipes that serve 6, instead of the more common "serves 4". I like to cook for my family members!

    The chapters in COOK LIKE A PRO on breakfast and desserts are inspiring, but some of the other chapters just don't feel new. I am especially excited to try some of the summery desserts, like fresh peach cremolata and vanilla roasted rhubarb with sweet yogurt. There are a lot of tips in here that will be helpful to new or younger home cooks, but are things I have already figured out along the way. But like everything Ina, it is a cookbook that will get used and is worth having.

  • Adrienne

    The book is gorgeous. I found the selection of recipes to be uninspiring though.

  • Jess

    I appreciate the tips throughout the book but the recipes didn’t grab me like her books usually do. I like the concept but wish she’d go back to cooking for her friends! Having a party is what makes Ina fun and approachable.

  • Deborah Bluminberg

    Nothing shows the huge difference between the life I have and the life I want like an Ina Garten cookbook. This cookbook is a good blend of recipes I could make and recipes I’d never tackle, but a woman can dream . . .

  • Kerry

    I do enjoy watching Ina and looking through her cookbooks. I read this one cover to cover, save a few of the dessert recipes. There are a few good tips that stood out to me as well as a couple of recipes that caught my eye but overall, this isn’t one I feel the need to add to my collection.

    I absolutely love Ina, and learned more about cooking and entertaining from her than from anyone else. I own all of her cookbooks and turn to them whenever I’m planning a menu. That’s why I’m sad to say this one was a let down :(

    I didn’t find too many recipes that jumped out at me as “must try!” The photos were not nearly as nice and appetizing as all of her other books. Almost every photo had the same basic composition, and so many recipes had 1” chunks of vegetables that they started to look t

    I learned something incredibly important that I wish she had said in ever book: she ONLY uses Diamond Kosher salt. I’ve always used Morton’s Kosher salt, but she says if we use that brand, to cut the salt amount in half!!!! How has it taken her 10 cookbooks to tell me that??? No wonder my mom and occasional guest have told me some of her stuff is too salty. For that tip alone, the cookbook was worth it. However, I realllllly wish I knew that sooner!! :)

    Sorry Ina, but this feels like a swing and a miss. I have all the others, and LOVE them. This one just does not speak to me. 2.5.
