About the Author

Gabriele Corcos was raised in a Tuscan olive orchard, on the hills right above Florence. He started cooking at the age of six and has not stopped since. Together they produced and co-hosted Cooking Channel’s Extra Virgin. They live in Brooklyn with their two daughters where they own the restaurant The Tuscan Gun.

Debi Mazar, native New Yorker, made her film debut in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas and has since appeared in more than seventy feature films, as well as HBO’s hit series Entourage and TV Land’s new series Younger.
