With a clear understanding of the concepts, you are then ready to experience the second section--Accounting Applications.

A collection of recipes and anecdotes, inspired by the world famous restaurant Joanne Trattoria, owned by Joe Germanotta, father of Lady Gaga.

In his debut cookbook, Joe shares a mix of time-tested family recipes and house favorites—such as Joanne’s Meatballs, Papa G’s Chicken Scarpariello, and the unforgettable Nutellasagna—and for the first time recounts his inspirational story of fulfilling his lifelong dream of opening his own restaurant. With never-before released family photos, heartwarming testimonials and entertaining anecdotes from the extended Joanne family, as well as a moving foreword by the Germanottas’ older daughter, Golden Globe®- and six-time Grammy®-winning, Academy Award-nominated global icon Lady Gaga, Joanne Trattoria Cookbook: Classic Recipes and Scenes from an Italian-American Restaurant will delight both fans and foodies alike.
