About this item

From the celebrity/chef husband-wife team and authors of the bestselling Extra Virgin comes a brand-new cookbook with over 100 delicious recipes that incorporate Tuscan flair with classic American dishes.With five seasons of their Cooking Channel show, Extra Virgin, still repeating regularly and their neighborhood Brooklyn Italian café-slash-supper-club, The Tuscan Gun, thriving in its second year, Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos have invited us again into their kitchen to share delicious recipes for the whole family to enjoy. Good Italian cooking is family cooking. From potato gnocchi with a buttery red sauce just like how Gabriele's grandmother used to make it, to the Tuscan fried chicken marinated in classic Italian flavors to put a whole new spin on a traditional American recipe, Super Tuscan showcases the best of both cultures, and introduces unique recipes that can only come from a multicultural kitchen.
