Written with a similar spirit to a Junior League cookbook, albeit one with a Northern twist and some celebrity cameos, The Ladies' Village Improvement Society Cookbook (Rizzoli; $45) marks the 125th anniversary of the well-known beach town's nonprofit with a collection of its members' recipes including some from Martha Stewart and Ina Garten. --ATLANTA HOMES & LIFESTYLES

If the outside world's impression of East Hampton is that of buxom and pale hydrangea Macrophylla bowing to the ocean breeze, tables laden all'aperto with crisp blue linens and shiny white Apilco porcelain, wealth and celebrities, country clubs and fabulous restaurants, well, then, this glossy quasquicentennial "The Ladies Village Improvement Society Cookbook" will firmly cement that impression. --EAST HAMPTON STAR
