9780679442820: Italianamerican: The Scorsese Family Cookbook

Catherine Scorsese's tomato-and meat sauce was probably the only recipe ever to receive full billing in the credits of a movie when Martin Scorsese starred the sauce and his parents in Italianamerican, his favorite of all his films. Now, for the first time, all the recipes from the family have been written down for this cookbook, with photos and anecdotes that tell the story of three generations of Scorseses.

From Library Journal:

Although simple in form and context, this book by the mother of famed film director Martin Scorsese unveils the true substance of the Italian American experience. As a diary of the Scorsese and Cappa families, it traces their ancestry back to Sicily, documents their first American experiences, and continues with the Scorsese family's growth on Elizabeth Street in New York City's Little Italy. What follows are short script sequences from the now-legendary on-set episodes (Catherine frequently acted in her son's movies) and cooking experiences of the Scorsese family with theatrical friends. As a cookbook, the volume adeptly weaves 42 authentic southern Italian recipes (sauces and salads first) into the framework of alternating text and screenplay snippets. The basic dishes?soups, pasta, chicken and meat, fish and shellfish, vegetables, and eggs, pizza, and calzone?are hearty and easy to prepare. The affectionate memories, first-rate recipes, and celebrity panache make this an interesting selection. Recommended.?Andrew F. Ackers, New York

From Publishers Weekly:

Ethnic Home Cooking The 250 lusty recipes of home cooks offered in French Farmhouse Cookbook were gathered by Susan Herrmann Loomis (Farmhouse Cookbook) during her three-year stint among the farmers, cheesemakers and vintners of the French countryside. Included are an assortment of tapenades; Jacqueline Priaulet's Daube, with orange zest, red wine, bacon and fennel seeds; Basque Chicken, with caramelized onions and garlic and a range of dessert tarts. Remember the scene in GoodFellas when Catherine Scorsese fixes pasta for Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta after they'd committed bloody murder? Now director Martin Scorsese's Mama (aided by Georgia Downard) shares her culinary skills in Italianamerican: The Scorsese Family Cookbook, a collection of family recipes for dishes (Veal Spiedini; Macaroni with Lamb and Veal in White Sauce; Sicilian Cake) gathered from her mother and her mother-in-law. Accompanying the recipes are photos and anecdotes covering three generations of Scorseses, moving from Sicily to New York's Little Italy.
