Product Description
In The Mafia Cookbook, Joe Dogs took the quintessential Mob formula — murder, betrayal, food — and turned it into a bestseller, not surprisingly, since Joe Dogs’s mixture of authentic Italian recipes and colorful Mafia anecdotes is as much fun to read as it is to cook from. Now The Mafia Cookbook is reprinted with Cooking on the Lam — adding thirty-seven original new recipes and a thrilling account of Dogs’s recent years since he testified against the Mob in f… More >>

    This book was written from the heart,and as every Italian knows, the way to the heart is through the stomach. Mr.Ianuzzi combination of true-life exploits and culinary mastery produce a cultural expose’ that helps define a way of life that few of us will ever experience. WHAT-EVER ! The “CAPONARA” is to die for and the Marinara Sauce should be illegal! In other words, this book is a must for every kitchen! A compliment cookbook to Joe Dogg”s is Dom Deluiese’s: “Eat this , it’ll make you feel better”

    Chicken Cacciatore, Shrimp Scampi Gambino-style and Manicotti Marinara are just a few of the traditional Italian dishes from “Joe Dogs” Iannuzzi’s Mafia Cookbook that will make you feel like a made man. With a collection of anecdotes of Joe Dogs’ life with the mob, this book isa good read even if you don’t cook. If you do, most of the dishes feature minimal preparation time and do not call for complex ingredients requiring pre-preparation. Overall, the book would compliment most cooking libraries and work especially well for the novice Italian chef

    Don’t mistake this for a novelty item. The recipes in this book are 100% legit. I’ve worked from a lot of cookbooks, and this one is my favorite. The scampi and the stuffed shells alone are easily worth the price of the book. And if you like Iannuzzi’s stories, you might want to check out his biography, as well. It’s an entertaining read.

    Who’d have thought the mob ate like this?? Check this one out; you won’t be disappointed.

    I couldn’t wait to get this book! When it arrived,I read it within an hour and decided on which recipes I was going to make. Being an Italian-American and having a father that taught me how to cook(God Rest His Soul), I found a lot of Joey Dogs recipes similar to the way my family cooks now. The Orrichetti with peas and proscuitto is to die for. No pun intended! HAHA There is nothing pretencious about this cooking, just good Italian food and of course, the stories are a riot. Its good food with a sad sense of humor. Try it, you’ll like it.

    The stories are great. The food is great. But unless you want an early cardiac arrest don’t eat like this regularly. Joe was a saucier early in his career, so all his recipes are heavy on the sauce. For instance, he calls for several sticks of butter plus a few cups of cream for 2 pounds of shrimp scampi. Even he jokes about this several times in the book. of course, you can always lighten them somewhat on your own.

    I’d say get this book for the stories more than for the recipes. (I am biased being half Sicilian). It makes a great gift.
