Overview

Eat This...It'll Make You Feel Better! is more than just a cookbook -- it's a vivid, hilarious jaunt into the life and childhood of dom DeLuise. Inspired by Mamma's simple, old-fashoined home cooking, the beloved movie and television star shares a scrumptious collection of treasured family recipes -- all topped with the zest of his humor and warmth. Dom regales us with colorful anecdotes about growing up in Bensonhurst, an Italian section of Brooklyn...the kitchen that was the center of his universe...and what it was like having a lively, loving mother who would cook a five-course meal for you at the drop of a fork.

Spiced with favorite recipes from Hollywood friends, Dom's cookbook includes an abundance of easy-to-prepare dishes -- from Mamma's Escarole Soup, to Chicken Dominick and Gnocchi Verdi, to Death by Chocolate Cake! Garnished with affection, fun, and more than a touch of nostalgia, it's filled with delicious, mouth-watering Italian cooking. Read, cook, eat and enjoy -- you'll be laughing even when you're washing the pots!

I inherited this cookbook from my grandmother after she died. I didn't even know Dom had written a cookbook! This has become one of the most used cookbooks that I own. I have tried almost every recipe in it with remarkable results. The stories are so real and funny that anyone with a close knit family will be able to relate to. This is one cookbook I will not part with, it's given me the secrets to great Italian cooking!!

This cookbook brings back so many memories of growing up in Bensonhurst. My family cooked many of the same recipes included in the book. Every recipe I've tried is delicious (the best Veal Picata!). Highly recommended!!
