This cookbook is great. I love authentic Italian and Italian American cooking and this would fall in the Italian American category in my opinion. But don't let that change your mind about this book. When I use these recipes I imagine this is how the streets smell in all of the little Italys across America! The recipes are clear, simple and more importantly delicious.
I bought this cookbook as a birthday gift, mainly because it carried the Sopranos name, but once I received it and started looking through the pages, I wasn't so sure I wanted to give it away! I was actually surprised at how many traditional, simple Italian recipes are in this book. I ended up making copies of many of the recipes before giving it as a gift! I've already made about 3-4 recipes out of this book, and am planning the next! A great find!
Even if you are NOT a Soprano fan OR Italian but enjoy cooking this is THE COOKBOOK!!!! Purchased for EVERYONE in the family. Between my daughter-in-law and myself we have made EVERYTHING in this past year and not been disappointed EVER! Even problems I have had for the past 5 years with my cannolli filling has been solved. I am not a "cookbook" person but just LOVE this book!
My husband loves to cook and he REALLY loves the Sopranos, so this was a no brainer. He loves the book, the recpies are SO SO good and there are stories about each charachter in the series to go along with the sections in the cookbook.
