Summary

The personal journey of one of the most respected chefs in the country. “The life lessons here are even better than the passel of recipes.” —Andrew Zimmern, Travel Channel   Featuring more than eighty recipes and full-color photography throughout, Good Stock weaves together memoir and cookbook in a beautiful and engaging package. It is the story of Sanford D’Amato’s journey from young Italian kid who loved to cook to unknown culinary student with a passion for classical French cuisine to a James Beard Award–winning chef and restaurateur. Through D’Amato’s experience opening Sanford, one of the highest-rated restaurants in America over the past twenty years, Good Stock also tells the tale of America’s embrace of fine dining and its acceptance of chefs as master craftsmen.   Readers of Good Stock will come to believe, as D’Amato does, that to create great food, it doesn’t matter if you’re preparing a grilled hot dog or pan-roasted monkfish—what matters is that you treat all dishes with equal love, soul, and respect, and try to elevate each dish to its ultimate level of flavor. Good Stock combines Midwestern charm with international appeal as the perfect book for aspiring chefs, culinary students, and foodies everywhere.   “If you are going to get one cookbook this year, get this one. If you are going to read one memoir this year, read this one . . . a full measure of his wit and love for food and people.” —Janos Wilder, James Beard Award–winning chef   “D’Amato is able to make these recipes meaningful to the reader. The result is a warm, compelling memoir that will bubble over into home kitchens everywhere.” —Isthmus

    The mobster portrayed in Casino “swaps his gun and fedora for an apron and chef’s hat and shares the recipes for some of his favorite dishes.” —Nicholas Pileggi, #1 New York Times–bestselling author and screenwriter of CasinoIncludes over 40 color photographs   Frank Cullotta was best known for his exploits as an associate of the Chicago Outfit and his role as Tony Spilotro’s enforcer and street lieutenant in Las Vegas. However, he had another interest besides crime. He loved to cook. In this book he shares some of his favorite recipes for your eating pleasure. Dennis Griffin first met Cullotta in 2005, and the two became close friends and co-authors of four books, including the bestseller The Rise and Fall of a 'Casino' Mobster. As Cullotta’s health failed, he was determined to bring their final collaboration into the world. The result is this collection of anecdotes, photos, and recipes—from the pizza served at the Las Vegas restaurant Cullotta opened (using stolen money) in 1979 to the mostaccioli his mom made and much more.   “I have known Frank Cullotta since he served as a technical consultant for the movie Casino. Frank’s reputation is primarily that of a master criminal and an enforcer for Chicago Outfit mobster Tony Spilotro. While that is true, he also had a softer side that few people knew about. He loved to cook . . . If you like to prepare and eat delicious meals, this is the book for you.” —Nicholas Pileggi
