About the Author
Henry Hill began working for the Lucchese crime family in the East New York section of Brooklyn at the age of eleven. Fully indoctrinated into all aspects of gangster life, Henry was involved in virtually every type of racket and criminal activity that the family ran. To avoid prison, he disappeared into the Federal Witness Protection Program, which relocated him and his family in various out-of-the-way places numerous times over the ensuing years.

I admit that I haven't made any of the recipes yet, but I am too busy at the moment enjoying the story of Henry's love of food, right from how he used to help his mother in the kitchen, to slicing garlic with a razor blade in prison (the way his mother used to do it), to cooking on the run.
Henry Hill's passion for food just oozes off the page and it's great to have a recipe book that combines a good culinary story with some really great sounding recipes.
I was going to knock off a star for not having pictures, but now Im not going to because it is a really great book.
Overall a really good Authentic Italian American cookbook.
Think I'll make myself some Sunday Gravy and put on the film.
The book is really well put togther, both the cooking aspect intertwined with Henry's memories and stories about the 'old days'.
If you love reading books about the Mafia, why not settle with this good book, having cooked yourself some spectaular authentic Italian/Sicilain food.
the book contains so many classic hearty receipes that are straight out 'mammas kitchen' - no fancy smancy fine dining stuff here! Also the book loaded with hints and tips to perfecting to most common receipes, even tips on shaving garlic with a razor blade.
Along with the price, it's an offer you can't refuse.

Just a gimmick Henry hill only put his name to this book. I doubt if he cooks this stuff but hey he was a gangster and became a tout to save his neck. Why wouldn't he cash in.Published on 25 Mar. 2014 by Stuart Kerr
