Book Description

3 Oct 2002
Eat like America's favourite crime family: fabulous Southern Italian recipes, photos, and lore from the hit series THE SOPRANOS.

Not just a SOPRANOS fan book, not just your typical Italian cookbook, THE SOPRANOS FAMILY COOKBOOK makes it easy to cook ziti as good as Carmela's and satisfy your SOPRANOS cravings at the same time.

THE SOPRANOS FAMILY COOKBOOK contains over one hundred recipes created with the character in mind, luscious pictures of the prepared dishes and photographs of Tony, his family, and all the wiseguys eating and cooking big, beautiful Italian meals. We've got Uncle Junior waxing nostalgic about Newark's Little Italy, Tony's grilling tips, Janice's stroll down dysfunctional memory lane, Artie's signature specialties a la Bucco, Livia's handwritten recipe for biscotti from 1967 and Carmela's favor-inducing ricotta pie with pineapple.

Salted with SOPRANOS flavour, peppered with little known background and references, get behind the scenes - and into the kitchen - with these family dishes. The way to the heart of the SOPRANOS is through the stomach, and the way to create traditional Neapolitan feasts is with THE SOPRANOS FAMILY COOKBOOK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Badda-Bing!! 24 Jan 2003
I recently bought this book for my (Sopranos Addicted) Uncle and he adores it! Not only are there some gorgeous recipes (we made the mussels last week) but the book is filled with comments, photos and cuttings form the show. Written in Soprano style language, you really feel like this is a collection of recipes passed down the generations of your favourite mobster family straight to you!

4.0 out of 5 stars A masterpice for Soprano hungry addicts 8 April 2005
By Corinne
I was so excited when I received this book as I longed for god knows how long to taste the recipes Carmela was cooking in the kitchen or make the cream buns the guys munched in the office and it was worth the wait. All the food you hear in the programme the recipes are in the book. Each character has a part in the book where they show you their favourite recipes , paulie even shows you the right way to cut a garlic while Adrianna shows you what food to order to impress your man. There is alot of fan information added to the recipes. The only gripe was that some of the ingredients are not available over here however if your into cooking you will find some way to swap them over. Well worth the money and a must for Sopranos fans !!!

This is a great book for any sopranos fan and also any italian food fan. It's great with the interaction between arti and the other cast members bringing a bit of fun to the kitchen which lets be honest is what great food is all about.

4.0 out of 5 stars NOT JUST FOR SOPRANOS FANS 6 July 2010
Believe it or not I am not a Sopranos fan, as I have never even seen the show. I came across this lovely cookbook, looking for traditional Italian recipes and got so much more. The recipes are great; I loved the Salmon Steaks with Avocado Salsa; such a wonderful summer dish and the Linguine al Pesto; just perfect. Watching American films I have always wondered what Cannolis were like, the Americans seem to eat them all the time, so I was curious. Well now I know, and I have to say they are right to like them so much.

What I really enjoyed in the book apart from the recipes, are the stories it contains. It is more of a family's scrapbook rather then just a recipe book. Memories, treasured moments, and of course recollections of cooking and dining are there, making this family real and familiar. Indeed, not having watched the show, I have to look at the photographs with the well known actors to realize that it is about a fictional family. I suppose most people are drown to this book after having loved the Sopranos on the TV, for me it is the opposite, I loved the book and now I think I am even drown to the show.

This book has been written as if by the characters themselves, eg Carmela's guide to entertaining, and is very, very funny. the photos are lush, and the recipes look wonderful too.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A gift for a Sopranos fan. Interesting recipes although some ingredients hard to find in UK. Perfect for someone who watches Sopranos and wishes they could eat all the food they see being prepared. Its not just a cook book as it has bits of information about the different characters as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sopranos Fan 19 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
After the recent sad death of James Gandolfini I watched the complete box set of the Sopranos again. Food is mentioned quite a lot and I was curious to know what the dishes were as the names were not familiar to me. After an online search for Soprano recipes I found this gem. Not only does it have the recipes but includes character interviews. A good buy for a fan such as myself. The book was delivered quickly and I am very happy with this purchase.
