Mob Wives unleash a bloody good cookbook on how to use a meat cleaver

I come from a deeply-rooted Eyetalian family.
Secrets remain buried.
So I watch Mob Wives, the reality TV series that follows the lives of four women affiliated with the Mob. In fact, the show has quickly risen to become the #1 show on VH1 and has inspired multiple spinoffs. The show's creator, Jennifer Graziano, one of its stars, along with Renee Graziano and their restaurateur sister Lana Graziano, have joined together to create a cookbook.
The title serves out more than one meaning. I love it: How to Use a Meat Cleaver: Secrets and Recipes from a Mob Family's Kitchen. Penguin releases the tome, in which the Graziano sisters share 100 of their favorite and most coveted family recipes, on February 4. They also share never-before-heard stories and anecdotes from inside the most famous mob family of our day (like how to sneak meatballs to family members in prison). For these women, there is nothing more important than family. And at the heart of every family—especially every Italian family—is food.
Is there a recipe for Cake With a File? My lips are sealed. And not because I don't like cake.
