Food this good should be illegal.
"Mob Wives," VH1's wildly successful hit show, follows the lives of six women affiliated with the mob. Now, show creator and Executive Producer Jennifer Graziano, star Renee Graziano, and their restaurateur sister, Lana Graziano, reveal their best-kept secrets yet.
The Grazianos invite you into their world but this time through the kitchen door, with this full color cookbook featuring 100 of their favorite and most-coveted family recipes. From Lana's famous meatballs to Sunday Gravy to Lobster Arriagiatta, the secret recipes are on the table. Plus, the book is spiced throughout with personal never-before-told stories that will let you get to know the most famous real mob family a little better.
Experience the Grazianos' lives from inside their kitchen where food and family are never far apart. Funny, outrageous, sentimental, and always authentic, the Grazianos leave you with the skills to talk the talk, cook pasta like there's no tomorrow, stir up a mean marinara—and use that meat cleaver to back it up.

Author Biography

Jennifer Graziano is the creator and Executive Producer of "Mob Wives," the #1 show on VH1 for two seasons running, with two more seasons on the way. She also produces “Big Ang”, “Mob Wives Chicago” and “Mob Wives Miami” (coming soon), in partnership with Harvey Weinstein. Renee Graziano is the star of "Mob Wives" and perhaps the show’s most compelling character. She is divorced from Hector Pagan, Jr., who was exposed as an FBI informant, and with whom she has a son, A.J. She’s been the subject of feature articles in People, US Weekly, and OK!, and appeared on The View, GMA, Extra, and many more. Lana Graziano-Zancocchio is the oldest of the Graziano clan. She married John Zancocchio, brother in law to Hector “Junior” Pagan and member of the Bonanno crime family, in the 1980s. Now divorced, they still own and operate several restaurants. Lana’s also a close friend of Big Ang of "Mob Wives." Jennifer, Renee, and Lana are the daughters of Anthony “T.G.” Graziano, the capo of the Bonanno crime family, currently serving a prison sentence on federal racketeering and extortion charges.
