This is the first book of it's kind, a cook book/autobiography. It gives you the background story of a guy who could've easily turned the wrong way, growing up cooking for the Philly mobsters but then using this talent to become a successful business man and acclaimed restaurateur now cooking for the biggest celebrities in Hollywood. He doesn't hold back when it comes to telling stories of his family life. And how he took a smart business idea from doing a Godfather night at his dads place in the 70's, and made it a huge success in his restaurants today.
This book is a true testament to who Steve Martorano is and what he's about. Holding on to his dream and making it happen, taking the punches (like his idol Rocky Balboa)and never giving up. you will learn the about the man behind The Cafe Martorano brand and how he took his favorite passions; food, music and movies to turn it into a mecca for people who love to have a unique dining experience. Steve and Son spin and show their favorite movies while the patrons eat his world famous meatballs which he put "on the map" , a simple pizzarea item is now his specialty and rated "best in the world"...
His inspirational messages throughout the book will motivate you to find yourself or perhaps follow your dream of opening your own place or it can just inspire you to find the joy in cooking for family and friends, with SIMPLE COMFORT FOOD COOKING.
This book is a tribute to his mother/grandmother and their culture and Italian American values and what she gave her family from their love of food and amazing family secret recipes from her Sunday night dinners.
