Drea de Matteo
For the first time, Italian-American actors share their secret recipes and stories of growing up in families where a meal is an experience, with Tony Lip as the host making every Italian dish a big hit. These mouthwatering recipes are passed down through generations, from the shores of Italy to the old neighborhoods in New York City. Enjoy a whole range of dishes from Danny Aiello's mother’s Lentil Soup to Joe Mantegna's Mussels Mantegna. Also included are recipes from The Copacabana, Patsy's, and Lombardi's, as well as the sets of “The Godfather” and “The Sopranos.”
Like pulling up a chair in an old, Italian neighborhood. Good, simple food and great stories abound.
For those of us who have ever questioned what went into the sauce during a scene of an Italian mobster flick.
Endearing anecdotes about washing dishes, adOI relatives and eating on set.
