Description - The Wise Guy Cookbook by Henry Hill

Recipes to make even the toughest tough guy beg for more... Mom's Antipasto - Sunday Gravy (Meat Sauce) - Cheater's Chicken Stock - Striped Bass for Paulie - Fat Larry's Pizza Dough - Henry's Kickback Antipasti Hero - Sicilian Easter Bread with Colored Eggs - Clams Casino - Osso Buco - Oven Penitentiary Sauce with Sausage - Michael's Favorite Ziti with Meat Sauce - and many others Henry Hill was a born wiseguy. At the pizzeria where he worked as a kid, he learned to substitute pork for veal in cutlets--which came in handy later when the bankroll was low. At thirteen, he got his first percentage from a local deli--that lost business when he started supplying the neighborhood wiseguys with his own heroes. And what great heroes they were... Once he entered Witness Protection, though, Hill found himself in places where prosciutto was impossible to get and gravy was something you put on mashed potatoes. So he learned to fake it when necessary (for example, Romano with white pepper took the place of real pecorino-siciliano cheese), and wherever he found himself, Hill managed to keep good Italian food on the table. He still brings this flair for improvisation to his cooking. No recipe is set in stone. And substitutions are listed in case you need them. Now, in his inimitable style, Hill tells some spicy stories of his life in the Mob and shows you how to whip up his favorite dishes, Sicilian style--even when you're cooking on the run....
