R.I.P. Dom DeLuise

I will miss him. He gave me many a smile.

Here are three cookbooks of him that I remember....

Eat This .. It'll Make You Feel Better

Eat This Too: It'll Make You Feel Better

Eat This Again: It'll Make You Feel Better

  1. Agreed - I never saw the cookbooks but remember his enthusiasm when he demonstrated his recipes on various talk shows. For Hounds too young to have seen his films, I recommend renting "The End", a comedy which co-starred Burt Reynolds

      Try to find "FATSO" where Dom gets the girl. Really shows food issues. Sooo Funny.

      Always thought he should have his own eponymous brand of champagne.

        That movie is sooooo sweet, Debbie Harry and Liv Tyler's are really good in it too

        1. re: rozz01

          Which movie has Dom with Debbie Harry and Liv Tyler?
          Liv Tyler was 3 years old when FATSO was released.

            I got it mixed up w/Heavy. That was Pruitt Vince not Dom... sorry

    2. I posted this link of Dom with eggs some time ago, but maybe somebody missed it. It is very funny.

        Thanks for that link billie, I have tears from laughing.

        1. re: billieboy

          I missed it the first time, so thanks for sharing! Good one.

            Wow! They just don't make comedy like they used too, do they? Hilarious!

            I too raise a toast to Mr. DeLuise. I cherish a copy of Eat This Too that he signed for me. What a sweet, sweet funny man.


          2. Old commercial for Koepplingers Bread--"may I spell that for you? B-R-E-A-D"

            1. billieboy--if you're online, they're doing a tribute to Dom DeLuise up next on CBS Sunday Morning. Otherwise, you might be able to find it on their site later on. G'morning!

              1. I loved the movie "Fatso" he showed you how to "run" your plate.

                  I loved the part when everybody in "Fatso Anonymous" (or whatever support group it was) started talking about their favorite pigout - someone said something about - sucking all the jelly out of a jelly donut, then sticking a chocolate in there, and letting it get all good and melty - and everyone is moaning ---!!!
