Barefoot Contessa book signing
Make some room on your bookshelf! The beloved Ina Garten from the Food Network's popular "Barefoot Contessa" show has graced us with another cookbook to add to our favorites! And she's making a stop in O.C. on Friday at noon at Williams-Sonoma South Coast Plaza for a book signing of "Barefoot Contessa How Easy Is That? Fabulous Recipes & Easy Tips."
Here's a hot tip to make certain that you will indeed meet Ina and get a book signed: Buy your book now at presale for $35 and have it available at will-call. The store will open at 8 a.m. Friday; plan on getting in line early. Ina will only be signing from noon to 1:30 p.m. Since we were lucky enough to get an advanced copy, we can tell you this book is a must-have for your kitchen. Ina takes into account the craziness of our lives and focuses on simple yet delicious dishes that save valuable time and money and minimize stress. Our favorites so far are the watermelon and arugula salad, the chicken with shallots, spicy turkey meatballs and the French toast bread pudding.
