Alfred and Robin Pellegrini are the founders/owners of Alfred’s Victorian Restaurant in Middletown. Robin has run the restaurant since Alfred passed away. Alfred wrote Recollections and Collections of Northern Italy in honor of his Italian father Armeno Pellegrini, who was born in Grossetto, a small town in the hills of Tuscany. It is a fascinating and unusual cookbook with a wealth of knowledge of Northern Italy cuisine, practiced in  Alfred’s Victorian Restaurant. At times it reads like a travelogue with regional recipes, drawings, personal insights and experiences gained during his many trips through the provinces of Northern Italy.

The America’s Test Kitchen 20th Anniversary cookbook is a gorgeous collection of the very best recipes from the show to help home cooks succeed by demonstrating the best cooking techniques and why great recipes work. More than 500 recipes are included from the shows’ 500+ episodes, along with every recipe from the show’s 20th season, beginning in January. You’ll also get a first-ever behind-the-scenes look at its beloved cast members and special features such as “Top 20 Lists” with Jack Bishop’s favorite flavor boosters and equipment expert Lisa McManus’s must-have kitchen gadgets.

The Perfect Cake is the definitive guide to any cake you crave, from classic anytime Pound Cake to a stunning and impressive Blueberry Jam Cake with brilliant ombré frosting. In addition to foolproof recipes are features that make towering 24-layer Hazelnut-Chocolate Crêpe Cake as approachable as Applesauce Snack Cake. Sidebars include step-by-step photography for cakes with more advanced techniques like piping the ribbons of frosting that help give beautiful Rhubarb Ribbon Cake its name. The test kitchen provides all the tips and tricks you need for executing perfect cakes every time.

How To Cocktail includes essential, canonical classics; twists on old favorites; and brand-new test kitchen creations. The recipes are organized by technique (stirring, shaking, muddling, blending, and more), with plenty of recipe step photos to light your way. For those who love a great DIY project, we offer up superior versions of vermouths, liqueurs, bitters, flavored syrups, and garnishes. Best of all, we’ve solved practical challenges such as how to make a wide array of cocktails without buying lots of obscure bottles or specialty equipment. Also packed inside: recipes for heavenly snacks to serve alongside cocktails.
