Joanne Trattoria Cookbook Book Signing with author, Lady Gaga’s Dad, Joe Germanotta

November 22, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Just in time for Thanksgiving and the holidays, Restaurateur Joe Germanotta is releasing his first-ever cookbook, Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes from an Italian-American Restaurant. Join the author for an in-person book signing appearance at Barnes & Noble on the Upper West Side.

The hardcover book is filled with traditional Southern Italian recipes and never-before-seen family photos with daughter, Lady Gaga, who also wrote the Foreword. The book’s recipes are accompanied by family photos – many never released before – as well as personal anecdotes from Gaga’s childhood and the restaurant’s staff. Highlights include Joanne’s Meatballs, Papa G’s Chicken Scarpariello, and the unforgettable Nutellasagna dessert. There is also a section dedicated to Thanksgiving recipes with an Italian twist.

The book is lovingly dedicated to Germanotta’s late sister, Joanne Stefani. Lady Gaga (née Stefani Joanne Germanotta) is named after her aunt, as is the family’s restaurant on Manhattan’s Upper West Side – from which the book takes its title.

Joanne Trattoria Cookbook retails for $24, is currently available for pre-order on Barnes & Noble, and will be sold at major booksellers everywhere on November 22, 2016.
