As America’s most trusted and bestselling cookbook author, Ina Garten – the Barefoot Contessa – has taught millions of people how to cook. In her highly anticipated eleventh cookbook, Cook Like a Pro (Clarkson Potter | on sale October 23, 2018| £20.00 | Hardcover), Ina shares brand-new recipes along with, for the very first time, a well-earned collection of tips and tricks that will help readers cook with confidence no matter their level of experience.

Although Ina is completely self-taught and doesn’t consider herself to be a “professional” cook, she has spent decades working with chefs and learning the techniques that set their cooking apart. In Cook Like a Pro, Ina shares dozens of these “pro tips” for prepping (how to properly cut cauliflower without making a mess), cooking (the secrets to making custardy, slow-cooked scrambled eggs and the juiciest fried chicken sandwich), and presenting (get that perfect shaved chocolate curl every time). Ina knows that cooking like a pro also means hosting like a pro. Here, too, are dozens of ideas to boost entertaining skills, including how to shake a cocktail to kick off the evening, or create that show-stopping pattern on her Chocolate Chevron Cake. Each recipe offers one (or more!) piece of insider insight that makes the dish a little more vibrant, the flavor a little more elevated, and the presentation irresistible.

In addition, as her millions of fans have come to expect, Ina’s recipes are streamlined, refined, and foolproof; she prides herself on testing and retesting each recipe until it is as straightforward and delicious as possible. Beginner and advanced cooks alike will love the practical advice in Cook Like a Pro that talks them through every detail, as though Ina were right there by their side.
