Seems cheesy at first with the Sopranos stories, but if qrtie can just get past that the actual recipes are fantastic! Feb 23, Kurt rated it really liked it Recommended to Kurt by: This is a funny book with a mix of Neapolitan recipes and Sopranos fan moments. The recipes seem great, with a focus on simple ingredients and traditional techniques, and I love that so many of them are illustrated with beautiful photography.
The bigger draw of this book, though, is likely the aspects that qrtie into the HBO show, which come through here in the form of in-character narrations Artie Bucco gives the history of Vesuvio’s and shares a chapter of more upscale restaurant-style recipes, This is a funny book with a mix of Neapolitan recipes artiee Sopranos fan moments. The bigger draw of this book, though, is likely the aspects that tie into the HBO show, which come through here in the form of in-character narrations Artie Bucco gives the history of Vesuvio’s and shares a chapter of more upscale restaurant-style recipes, Charmaine Bucco discusses the challenges and etiquette of professional catering before revealing some recipes that are easily scaled up for a crowd of fifty, Adriana La Cerva gives romance tips and a chapter of romantic recipes.
The chapters capture the characters’ voices well, bbook Janice’s self-centered and booo memories of days growing up around the Soprano family table, and there are plenty of large photographs from the show to tickle the memories of fans.
There are other cookbooks on the market for this cuisine, so this isn’t an essential read for the recipes, but this book is a must-have for fans who miss the show and want to revisit their experiences in a multi-sensory way.

This is a good, solid Italian-American cookbook mostly recipes from Southern Italy. It was enjoyable reading for a fan of the show, but even if you aren’t, the recipes are first-rate. The way they’re laid out, bhcco, and annotated make them very easy to follow. There are only a few clinkers in there and that’s totally subjective on my part. You might love what I don’t like. Supposedly, all the recipes are from Avellino, a little town in southern Italy–and who am I to argue?
Whatever the case, you’ll enjoy it. Nov 29, Martin Tupper rated it really liked it. Fun cookbook for any fan of the show. Now I just need to find a rdcipe club like Tony’s and I’m set.
Feb 28, Anula rated it really liked it Shelves: If you are a Sopranos fan and a foodie as well, you have to have it. If you watched even only one episode you’ll know that the food is an important part of their lives – they are eating something almost constantly! Lots of family parties, lots of wakes Christmas dinners, BBQ etc.
All the recipes in the book are easy to follow and with very clear instructions. You wont find ingredients that are hard to get, bucfo all the dishes in the book will be available gecipe you to make.
The dishes I’m immediately thinking of when watching The Sopranos mainly because they are ‘family favourite and always present are: This book isn’t a cook book as we know it. The big appeal of this particular book is the way in which it ties into the show itself, which is visible here in the form of in-character narrations different in each chapter – Artie Bucco gives the history of Vesuvio’s and shares a chapter of restaurant style recipes he’s also the main narrator in the bookCharmaine Bucco discusses the challenges and etiquette of professional catering before revealing some recipes that are easily prepared for a bigger crowd of guests, Adriana La Cerva gives a chapter of romantic recipes and tips for that perfect “dinner for two”, Tony himself talks about Biok grill party and Carmela about family gatherings.
The chapters show characters well too, especially Janice’s self-centered and artificial memories of days growing up around the Soprano family table and Uncle Junior’s views not only on food. There are many large photographs from the show as well as some letters and other family keepsakes.
If you – as I – love The Sopranos Aug 16, DBC rated it it was amazing Shelves: I friggin love this book. It was life changing.
Before this book, I cooked at home a lot but only had a few basic recipes and methods of preparing food that I stuck to, and supplemented with frozen dinners when I got bored of it all. Most of the cookbooks I’d encountered were like textbooks Here, each recipe gets its own page, with large print, easy-to-follow directions, and pictures that will make your stomach grumble with anticipation.
Recipes get grouped together with different characters from the show, and after some regular usage, you’ll mentally link recipes to character sections and be able to find the page you’re looking for in seconds. The book also gives good advice about where to cut corners, as should be the case with any wiseguy-themed book. You’ll know when you should go with canned food, and when you should make it yourself.
I’d like to someday try making all the recipes in this book, but currently I’ve only made about half, with meals like Pork Chops with Vinegar Peppers becoming a monthly staple for me. I now also have practice, skill, and a courage to try unusual recipes which has carried me on to different cookbooks.
I owe all the variety in my current diet and the almost total disappearance of frozen meals to this Family cookbook Jul 30, Alexandra the Great rated it it was amazing. I’m such a fan of The Sopranos and Artie Bucco just happens to be a boook character of mine. The recipes in this book are your basic Southern Italian staples with a couple Booj recipes recpie in here and there. But what makes this book really worthwhile is that it mirrors the show so well.
There’s commentary from characters that the show’s writers must have been responsible for. So while you’re making cannoli, you can also read the instant message conversation between Meadow Soprano and h I’m such a fan of The Sopranos and Artie Bucco just happens to be a favorite character of mine. So while you’re making cannoli, you can also read the instant message conversation between Meadow Soprano and her friend. A handy Jersey Italian-English glossary, so you won’t look silly or be confused when you hear that there’s a pot of Sunday gravy on the stove or when bucvo offered some ‘scharole.
Good recipes in an entirely entertaining format. The cannoli recipe is one that my family has been using for years now. Mar 31, Mark Rob added it.
