Lady Gaga’s father to release Italian cookbook

NEW YORK, Aug. 17 (UPI) — Lady Gaga‘s father, Joe Germanotta, will release a cookbook featuring recipes from his NYC restaurant, Joanne Trattoria, with Gaga writing the book’s foreword.

The book, titled Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes From an Italian American Restaurant, will showcase recipes from the restaurant and anecdotes from the Germanotta family.

The Upper West Side restaurant opened in 2012 and has marketed itself as a family-style eatery featuring traditional Italian fare.

“Family, food, and love are the foundation upon which Joe Germanotta and his wife, Cynthia, raised their daughters, Natali and Stefani (aka Lady Gaga),” said a press release from the book’s publishing company.

“Named for his sister who died of Lupus three months shy of her 20th birthday, their family-run restaurant is built on those same fundamental principles. In the pages of this cookbook, Joe has collected recipes and entertaining anecdotes inspired by his world famous restaurant.”

The book is set to be released on November 22.
