A great feast

Delicious recipes and tips from Carmela and the family on planning and hostessing confirmations, graduation parties, weddings and, yes, funerals too! Written in a lively, conversational style with luscious pictures of the food and colorful comments from the story characters.

Classy Kitch

As someone who does give a lot of parties, and I am totally at one with the style of Amy Sedaris (I like You, Entertaining under the influence) and always aspired to Carmella's style, I love this book! I like Amy's hilarious book too. They are QUITE different. I just started watching the Sopranos and having the cook book is cute and fun. I am enjoying the humerous characters giving advice. It is actually very good advice! As a cook book; it has party menu plans and recipes and they are doable and quite good. Plus, I never would have thought of putting a white serving plate on a white tablecloth with white flowers...really! I am not joking. It never would have crossed my mind! It really does make things look pretty. I think that the photos and menus are great. I like the review question # 4; I am over the age of 13, hee hee...I am 50 and I have given a lot of parties. I have party anxiety everytime! I especially liked Doctor Melfi's advice on that.

A must for Sopranos fans! ... and here's a good recipe...

As others have said, the book is a hoot. I especially loved the interview with "Uncle June," who can't stay focused and keeps wandering off on tangents. I did not find too many recipes I wanted to make, but I did try the Pizza Rustica (Easter Pie). I took quite a few liberties with the recipe, including using a ready-made Pillsbury crust, and using only prosciutto and a little bacon instead of all the capicola ("gabagool") and other meats that are suggested. I also didn't use cubes of mozzarella, but did include two cloves of minced garlic which I sauteed with the bacon and prosciutto. The pie was easy, tasted FABULOUS, and looked very pretty and professional when it came out of the pan! It will definitely become a staple in our house.

Rucker's Best Yet!!

Allen Rucker continues to have a handle on brilliant and entertaining writing. The recipes are fabulous, the pictures are tops - but the sidebar stories and historical/background info is interesting and captivating! Rucker is the author to follow - he brings humor and down-to-earth thoughts to his work!

Authentic Italian food +

This cookbook actually is full of really good recipes plus if you love the Sopranos you will love the pictures and stories. It also has a few decorating tips for the holidays as well as menus for all occasions.
