5 Stars Carmine’s Family-Style Cookbook
My family and I have dined at Carmines in NYC many times and were eager to see if we could replicate some of the recipes using this cookbook.
We purchased a book for each our mom’s and for ourselves and scheduled a Carmine’s night. Everyone, including my sister and my wife’s brother, picked a recipe to cook and we enjoyed a complete Carmine’s feast.
Our dinner was amazing and we are going to schedule another one real soon.
5 Stars I can smell the garlic!
Having moved from New York City, I truly miss the wonderful restaurants. When I heard Carmine’s published a cookbook, I immediately went to Amazon.com to order. Have tried quite a few recipes and everyone of them brings back the old memories. Truly delicious and worth the purchase.
5 Stars best chicken scarpariello ever!
I stumbled into the Times Square restaurant a few months ago not realizing that I was about to ingest one of the best meals of my life! So I bought the book for the chicken scarpariello alone. And even tho I am a fairly mediocre cook this recipe came out almost exactly the same as the restaurant! Even my family was shocked!
4 Stars A read that makes your mouth water…..
After a number of visits to Carmine’s in the theatre district where we are anxious to see a show be over to get to the restaurant, and then again in Atlantic City where the gamining tables became secondary to the what awaited us foodies, I ordered this “well written for the lay person to read” and began to do just that. After perusing the entire book, I must admit, I can feel the texture of all the ingredients and savor the taste of so many of the recipes, but they are just fantasies because I can’t bring myself to make any one of the gastrointestinal delights. It just seems that I prefer to keep the gods of Carmine’s and their mysteries just that. A wonderful collection of all my favorites, and one of these days…..
5 Stars Great Italian-American Food!!!
Fabulous cookbook. We’ve made two things so far and both have been great. Who knew such a pedestrian dish as sausage,peppers and onions could sing!! Great book.
