EAST KINGSTON — The New Year has brought some interesting non-fiction titles for our patrons to sample. Two cookbooks top the list: “The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook” by Deb Perelman and “Nigellissima: Easy Italianian-Inspired Recipes” by Nigella Larson.

The first title is born from a blog on the internet. Perelman experiments in a tiny, New York City apartment kitchen coming up with some amazing dishes. She has a huge fan base online and her recipes are meticulously tested as well as beautifully photographed. You may know one of my personal favorites from TV. Nigella Larson is a British cook whose approach to food is a bit more sensual than scientific. Here again great pictures entice the reader to try some interesting and new combinations. With her Italian inspiration pastas sing and favorites like Gouda, ricotta and Brussels sprouts are cradled in a casserole to delight.

“On Looking: Eleven Walks with Expert Eyes” by Alexandra Horowitz takes her readers on a different kind of sensory journey. “On Looking” is structured around a series of eleven walks the author takes, mostly in her Manhattan neighborhood, with experts on a diverse range of subjects, including an urban sociologist, the well-known artist Maira Kalman, a geologist, a physician, and a sound designer

“My Brother’s Book” is a slender book, the last published by Maurice Sendak. His publisher describes it as follows: “Fifty years after “Where the Wild Things Are” was published comes the last book Maurice Sendak completed before his death in May 2012, “My Brother’s Book”. With influences from Shakespeare and William Blake, Sendak pays homage to his late brother, Jack, whom he credited for his passion for writing and drawing. Sendak’s tribute to his brother is an expression of both grief and love and will resonate with his lifelong fans who may have read his children’s books and will be ecstatic to discover something for them now.”

Ccome in from the cold and try a new title from our extensive collection.
