Product Description

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.

If, when you watch goodfellas you start to feel hungry, if your mind wanders slightly from the plot as you wonder what exactly is in that sauce that takes all afternoon to cook and that you have to keep stirring, and if you are fascinated by the idea of using a razor blade to slice garlic so thin that it liquifies in the pan - then this is the book for you. Indulge your inner gangster as you cook one of the many Italian American dishes and wonder what life would have been like if, like Henry you had been a wise guy. A fantastic book - highly recommended.

If you love Goodfellas, then you'll love this book. And even if you don't love Goodfellas, you'll probably still love this book.

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.

I bought a copy via Amazon. The recipies that I have made so far have been fab. As the other reviewers have said they can take some time but when your on the run you have all the time in the world. The other good thing is that Henry tells a story at the start of each chapter, things like how he learned to make sausage and pepper heros and how to substitute ingredients when in prison. So why not whip up some fugazy cutlets and clams casino followed by Michael's favorite ziti with meat sauce or lobster fra diavolo then sit back, play the movie and be a wiseguy.

This booked merged both of my loves.

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.
