Posted on: 04/21/2017 00:00
(By Eve Bushman) Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino and Emmy-award winner Dee Dee Sorvino’s PINOT, PASTA, and PARTIES have put together a cookbook…the Sorvinos share 80 delicious, authentic Italian recipes along with menus that are perfect for relaxed entertaining. Readers also get a glimpse of the Sorvinos bi-coastal life and tales of Paul's acting career.
Things I LOVED about the Sorvinos’ cookbook
All 10 chapters in this coffee-table-sized book highlight a complete meal from appetizer through to dessert.
Every chapter starts with a unique “Dee Dee’s Special Cocktail” recipe.
Each chapter reads like a short biography, a glimpse of the Sorvino lifestyle and includes the role of travel – Los Angeles for its farm to table dining and partying with the Governor in New York – as well as their interests in music, movies, television, art, politics and…parties!
The mouth-watering full-page photos.
The how-tos, especially Paul’s thoughts on which olive oil to use and the eight sauces you need to know that go with everything.
An appendix that includes names and descriptions of popular Italian wines.
Recipes I Want to Try

POEM OF THE WEEK
LOVE and FRIENDSHIP
by Emily Bronte
Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?
The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?
Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.
