Spin-off merchandise either flops or succeeds really well. This book succeeds really well, not least because the recipes are very good and easy to make. I bought it as a joke gift for my son and partner, but, in true Soprano fashion, decided to betray them both and keep it myself (in a dark cellar, wrapped in polythene - you'll never find it, kids!)
The recipes are interspersed with comments from various Soprano characters on subjects as varied as how to be a good Godfather; how to plan a wedding (such a pity Adriana disappeared)and what to do when unexpected Feds arrive just as the family is sitting down to dinner. Read it for fun; cook the dishes for friends and family and never ever leave all your money in the bird feeder. Enjoy, and don't sit with your back to the door!
