Barefoot Contessa: If It Ain't Broke...

bostonbelle | Dec 27, 2008 09:47 AM

Last week Ina made lobster and shrimp gratin and dark chocolate bark. I'm currently experiencing a peculiar deja vu as she whips up a scallop gratin and ... drumroll ... white chocolate bark.

I'm a fan, but I've felt this Groundhog's Day syndrome when reading her cookbooks as well. Four recipes for roast chicken, a tomato and feta salad not to be outdone by a feta and tomato salad, coconut cake and coconut cupcakes. I suppose this is a side effect of empire building and recipe proliferation.

Just for the record, I'd happily eat any and all of these meals. I'm just noting a phenomenon.
