Overview

The star of hit television show Growing Up Gotti shares her secret family recipes along with anecdotes about her lively Italian family.

Victoria Gotti has become as famous for her cooking as she is for all her other fabulous media appearances. Here, she shares the secrets to all her wonderful Italian recipes, for all occasions.

Filled with 100 recipes of her own, as well as from friends and family, Victoria Gotti's cookbook will tickle your palate on any occasion: breakfast, lunch, barbecue, appetizers, desserts and Sunday dinners; special times like birthdays and weddings; meals for entertaining friends and families, and of course food for the holidays such as Christmas, Easter, and the Feast of San Gennaro.

For that is the essence of cooking for Victoria – keeping the family together with heart–warming, delicious meals made with tender loving care. Her meals encourage family togetherness, and will gather round your loved ones for the kind of all–important quality time that many people leave out of their fast–paced lives. She proves that even the business female executives juggling the pressures of the workplace, home and kids can prepare and cook homemade, healthy and delicious meals that everyone will enjoy.

With a beautiful sixteen–page color photo insert of her most spectacular meals, Victoria will take the reader through the history of the Gotti family, with historical black and white photos of her parents, uncles and aunts, and grandparents, and a food history of the family as well. The family stories will be interwoven with and tied into the recipes that have marked the lives of one of the best–known Italian families in America.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
For several reasons, nobody ever refused an invitation to dinner at Victoria Gotti's house. The star of Growing Up Gotti has always nurtured a special love for Italian cuisine, an affection that she displays on every page of this truly appetizing cookbook. Victoria spices her pasta recipes with generous helpings of memorable stories and good Gotti gossip.
Library Journal
In addition to the chatty tone, gossipy detail, and flamboyant attitude that one might expect, this cookbook by media figure and novelist Gotti (The Senator's Daughter) is packed with a solid array of recipes for appetizers, soups, pasta, pizza, main courses, and desserts, sure to please fans of Italian food. Standards or basics, like handmade pasta and gnocchi, sauces, pasta e fagioli, minestrone soup, veal saltimbocca, chicken cacciatore, gelato, and panna cotta, are well represented, as are some less familiar dishes, although it's doubtful that there are any surprises here for the dedicated, advanced Italian chef. Directions are clear and should be sufficient for most cooks, although the very inexperienced might desire an additional reference. Generous helpings of commentary throughout on Gotti's childhood, her children, her travels, women's roles in the kitchen and the home, and traditional values are equally likely to interest, amuse, or enrage readers, depending on their viewpoint (or mood). Recommended for all public libraries.-Courtney Greene, DePaul Univ. Lib., Chicago Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

3 1/2 pounds veal (for stew), cubed
4 garlic cloves, crushed

Pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground pepper, coarsely ground
1 1/2 cups dry red wine

Place the meat in a large saucepan and add the garlic, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Add enough water to cover the meat, using at least 4 cups, and cook over medium heat for 1 hour and 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

When the cooking time is up, add the wine and cook for an additional 1 hour, adding additional boiling water as necessary to keep the peposo from drying out or burning. Serve hot, over either rice or noodles.

1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon virgin olive oil
6 anchovy fillets, chopped

Salt to taste
1 pound spaghetti or spaghettini
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons capers
8 to 10 black olives, pitted andsliced

Instructions:

In a large skillet over low heat, heat 1/2 cup of the olive oil and add the anchovies. Cook, stirring constantly, until the anchovies dissolve.

Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute. Increase the heat to high and add the tomatoes and salt to taste. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

Cook the pasta according to package directions, or until al dente, then drain.

Add the pasta to the sauce simmering on the stove. Add the oregano, capers, and olives.

Toss the pasta until thoroughly mixed, and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil. Transfer to a serving platter and serve hot.
