A hard-to-get reservation is all the more prized but a reservation limited to members only seems to be the Philadelphia diner's Holy Grail. The Palizzi Social Club has been around for almost 100 years in South Philly but it was after chef Joey Baldino took over from his late uncle that business really started to boom. Palizzi has mastered the balance of old-school Italian kitsch and super-high-quality food and cocktails. Joey is an experienced hand at great Italian dishes, with a fantastic menu at his Collingswood, NJ, restaurant, Zeppoli. The menu at Palizzi has a broader Southern Italian scope, drawing influence from food his Uncle Ernie served at the Club and what his mother, grandmother and aunts cooked at home. These recipes, about 70 in total, will make up the bulk of DINNER AT THE CLUB and include dishes like Sweet Ricotta Pie, Seafood Fritto Misto, Spaghetti with Crabs and Stromboli. Joey's food is humble, homey and delicious and the bulk of the recipes reflect that in their friendly approach, easy processes, adaptability ("Don't have time to soak dry chickpeas overnight? Just use canned, like my mom does.") and accessible pantry. If you can find quality canned tomatoes, some nice Mediterranean anchovies and a cold-pressed olive oil for finishing, you're halfway there. And because Palizzi has a lively bar, the book will include a chapter dedicated to its amaro-centric cocktails, plus a couple grandma-style liqueurs that readers can make from scratch.

This book is a brilliant concept. You can use it: as a guide to walking (not necessarily in a straight line!) from distillery to distillery; to plan lovely days out in the Lakes; as a highly entertaining read. So what's it all about? "How d'you fancy a mad Lakeland distillery tour?" So said hairbrained-ideas factory Beth Pipe to social media pal Karen Guttridge, whom she had never even met! Karen immediately agreed, and with only a sense of humour and a love of gin (etc.!) in common, the two women set off on a selfl ess mission to fi nd and taste the best spirits and beers our English Lakes have to offer. Join the intrepid pair as they brave weather, hangovers, heavy rucksacks, motorised sheep and far too many cakes, all in the name of celebrating and spreading the word about Lakeland's excellent gin, whisky, beer and vodka. And there are a surprising number of these small-scale, high quality producers in the Lake District, all of them passionate about what they do and creating divine drinks for all tastes. Whether you decide to follow in their footsteps or just read about their adventures from the comfort of your armchair, Gin, cake & rucksacks is a hugely entertaining read - even if you're not a gin nut!

The supper club of the Upper Midwest is unmistakably authentic, as unique to the region as great lakes, cheese curds, and Curly Lambeau. The far-flung locations and creative decor give each supper club a unique ambience, but the owners, staff, and regulars give it its personality. Author Dave Hoekstra traveled through farmland, woods, towns, and cities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, and Illinois, eating at salad bars, drinking old fashioneds, and most of all talking to old-timers, local historians, and newcomers. He discovered that far from going the way of so many small establishments, supper clubs are evolving, combining contemporary ideas such as locavore menus and craft beer with traditional Friday night fish fries and Saturday prime rib. He brings to life the memorable people who have created and continue the tradition, from the blind dishwasher at Smoky's to the Dick Watson Combo playing "Beyond the Sea" at the Lighthouse and the entrepreneurs and hipster crowd behind the Old Fashioned. Corporations have defined mainstream eating habits in America, but characters define supper clubs, and this combination oral history and guide, with more than one hundred photographs, celebrates not only the past and present but the future of the supper club.
