What People are saying about this

Sirio Maccioni

"Anthony Chiffolo and Rayner Hesse have again produced a most unusual -- and very special -- work. I've always detected an almost spiritual quality to anything which proceeds from their bright, fertile, sensitive souls, and Cooking with the Movies: Meals on Reels doesn't disappoint. As you read of these legendary repasts and savor the classic meals which are part of the lexicon of our silver screen, we get an instantly satisfying flash of deja-vu. And how sweet it is to revisit these memorable meals and sit at the table once more with the screen immortals of our past."

Sirio Maccioni, award-winning Restaurateur and Proprietor of Le Cirque and Osteria del Circo restaurants in New York, Las Vegas, Mexico City, and Casa de Campo; author of Sirio: The Story of My Life and Le Cirque

"I'm not sure who'll be more ecstatic with this wonderful book: the ambitious home cook or the film buff! A unique concept, impeccably worked out."

Kristi Zea

"On many a night, the set of 'Goodfellas' was enveloped in mouth-watering smells coming from the prop truck as Mrs. Scorsese (Marty's mother) miraculously created the dishes offered in this book! The shooting crew stood around patiently as the actors were filmed wolfing down her culinary masterpieces. When the scene was completed, we all got to eat some! Now that's the way to make a movie!"
