From award-winning actor and food obsessive Stanley Tucci comes an intimate and charming memoir of life in and out of the kitchen. Before Stanley Tucci became a household name with The Devil Wears Prada, The Hunger Games, and the perfect Negroni, he grew up in an Italian American family that spent every night around the table. He shared the magic of those meals with us in The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table, and now he takes us beyond the recipes and into the stories behind them. Taste is a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about growing up in Westchester, New York, preparing for and filming the foodie films Big Night and Julie & Julia, falling in love over dinner, and teaming up with his wife to create conversation-starting meals for their children. Each morsel of this gastronomic journey through good times and bad, five-star meals and burnt dishes, is as heartfelt and delicious as the last. Written with Stanley's signature wry humour and nostalgia, Taste is a heartwarming read that will be irresistible for anyone who knows the power of a home-cooked meal.

The Tucci Cookbook

The Tucci Cookbook

Author: Stanley Tucci Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/11/2012

THE DEBUT COOKBOOK FROM THE AWARD-WINNING ACTOR, STANLEY TUCCI There is some truth to the old adage, 'Most of the world eats to live, but Italians live to eat.' What is it about a good Italian supper that feels like home, no matter where you come from? Heaped plates of steaming pasta...crisp fresh vegetables...simple hearty soups...sumptuous stuffed meats...all punctuated with luscious, warm confections. For acclaimed actor Stanley Tucci, teasing our taste buds in classic foodie films such as Big Night and Julie & Julia was a logical progression from a childhood filled with innovative homemade Italian meals: decadent Venetian Seafood Salad; rich and gratifying Lasagne Made with Polenta and Gorgonzola Cheese; spicy Spaghetti with Tomato and Tuna; delicate Pork Fillet with Fennel and Rosemary; fruity Roast Duck with Fresh Figs; flavourful Baked Whole Fish in an Aromatic Salt Crust; savoury Aubergine and Courgette Casserole with Potatoes; buttery Plum and Polenta Cake; and yes, of course, the legendary Timpano. Featuring nearly 200 irresistible recipes, perfectly paired with delicious wines, The Tucci Cookbook is brimming with robust flavours, beloved Italian traditions, mouthwatering photographs and engaging, previously untold stories from the family's kitchen. Buon appetito!
