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.
Along with over 100 tasty recipes, Debi and Gabriele share entertaining anecdotes, useful tips, and day-to-day life in their household with over 125 stunning photographs. Super Tuscan will inspire you to make cooking a daily experience in your family life and live la dolce vita wherever you are.
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.
