Smitten Kitchen Keepers: New Classics for Your Forever Files

The long-awaited new book from the best-selling and beloved author of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook and Smitten Kitchen Every Day—a collection of essential recipes for meals you'll want to prepare again and again, from Cozy Chicken and Dumplings to Fettuccine with White Ragú, and from Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies to Strawberry Summer Stack Cake.

Deb Perelman is the author of two best-selling cookbooks; one of the internet's most successful food bloggers; the creator of a homegrown brand with more than a million Instagram followers; and the self-taught cook with the tiny kitchen who obsessively tests her recipes to make sure that no bowls are wasted and that the results are always worth the effort.

Here, in her third book, Smitten Kitchen Keepers: New Classics for Your Forever Files, Perelman gives us 100 recipes (including a few favorites from her site) that aim to make shopping easier, preparation more practical and enjoyable, and food more reliably delicious for the home cook.

DEB PERELMAN is a self-taught home cook and photographer and the creator of the award-winning blog She lives in New York City with her husband and their children.

Moderator Esther Tetreault is the owner and founder of Trillium Brewing Company in Massachusetts, a modern New England farmhouse brewery. Since opening in 2013, Trillium has been consistently ranked among the best breweries in the world. Esther and her husband, JC have grown Trillium from a small brewery in Boston to six active locations, including two restaurants, a production brewery and working farm. A seasoned entrepreneur, Esther holds an MBA from Bentley University. Through her work and position in the community, Esther supports various philanthropic initiatives, including an active role on the Family Reach National Advisory Board. At home, Esther and her two children enjoy reading, traveling the world, and baking for anyone and everyone.
