Ina Garten fans, circle October 25, 2016, on your calendars. That's when the Barefoot Contessa's next cookbook, announced Wednesday, will be released. Garten's new book is called Cooking for Jeffrey, and it will be filled with some of her adorable husband's favorite recipes.

"Ina's most personal cookbook yet, Cooking for Jeffrey is filled with the recipes Jeffrey and their friends request most often, as well as charming stories from Ina and Jeffrey's many years together," reads the book's synopsis. "From satisfying lunches to elegant dinners, Ina has tested these recipes over and over again, so you too can serve them with confidence to the people you love."

Recipes in the book will include brisket with onions and leeks, skillet-roasted lemon chicken, roasted salmon, apple pie bars, and vanilla-rum panna cotta with salted caramel. There also will be a chapter on bread and cheese — a first for the Contessa — with recipes and tips for creating "the perfect cheese course."

Cooking for Jeffrey, published by Clarkson Potter, will span 256 pages, and the initial hardcover price is set at $35. It will be available for $18.99 on Kindle. The cookbook is Garten's first since 2014, when she published Make It Ahead.
