Product Description

Review

“Stanley’s masterful artistry and talent on screen is inevitable, and having cooked with Stanley in my own kitchen, I can say with confidence that Stanley has talent behind the stoves as well. He is at ease and most skilled while cooking, and delivers truly delicious recipes. This cookbook is an intimate glimpse into the Italian heritage that Stanley holds dear—sharing the memories and flavors of his family table. And, it is with much admiration that I recommend this delicious read.”
—Lidia Bastianich, New York Times bestselling author of Lidia’s Italy in America

“Stanley Tucci understands Italian food and Italian cooking. If that wasn’t immediately apparent upon viewing his brilliant film Big Night, it will be when you read this book. . . . Stanley’s co-author Gianni Scappin taught me everything important I needed to know about the food of Northern Italy. . . . His recipes and the techniques he taught me are fundamental to my life and have saved me from untold embarrassment every time I cook for my Italian in-laws.”
—Anthony Bourdain, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential

“Chefs and actors share a wonderful bond, the warm friendship of their respective colleagues. Stanley has learned to straddle both professions and this terrific book is a testament. Stanley is totally passionate about his Italian culinary history, and he is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of how home cooks and professional chefs approach recipes. I adore his family anecdotes and recipes, especially when one region has a strong opinion how a tomato sauce is to be prepared. I am jealous, Stanley is the consummate actor/director, and now we can add chef/cookbook author. Well done!”
—Jonathan Waxman, author of Italian, My Way

"The best adjective for The Tucci Cookbook is generous: from portion sizes to the constant theme of hospitality to Tucci's decision to donate a portion of the profits to the Food Bank of New York City. The Tucci Cookbook will appeal both to serious home cooks and to film buffs." (Pamela Toler, blogger for History in the Margins)

Such a great cookbook. I have wanted this forever, mostly because of the tipnao recipe from Big Night and the fact that I love Stanley Tucci!
The forward is very interesting and is more like a story being told by a new friend that you are just getting to know. The recipes all have a bit of a background, those feel like stories from a friend you’ve know forever. Have tried risottos and salads so far (it’s summer in Onatrio) and they are all amazing. Looking forward to the fall when we can try out the recipes that suit warmer weather.
I recommend this book and know that whoever buys it will love it!

My son was very happy to receive this book , I was disappointed in the way it was
shipped it was left at my side door which we never use in the winter and no note was
left in the mail box so it was outside for days in a cardboard box , it had rained & snowed so I had to dry the pages with my blowdryer and put a weight on top of the
book to try to get the pages back to somewhat normal. I don't think I will order again
in the winter because of this fact.

I love this cookbook. My husband is Italian and I kept trying to make sauce the way his mother did. I had been shown before, but the recipe "Tropiano Ragu Sauce" was a perfect and easy to follow. He loved and said how much it tasted like his mothers. Thank you Stanley Tucci for this cookbook.

More than a cookbook, we get insight into the Tucci family history. Reads like a novel. Great Christmas gift for anybody who likes food.

This book has a beautiful cover with raised lettering. The photos of Stanley Tucci are nice. But there are few pictures of
the recipes. One recipe "drum of ziti and great stuff" also called "timpano allo big night" has 4 photos of Stanley preparing this dish....but I can't see anything in the photo that actually shows the food. This is the dish that caught my interest and I will be making it soon. I have looked it up on the Internet and it seems quite popular.
I'm a little bit disappointed in the recipes. Some are too basic. For eg. "Ziti with broccoli" - is just that, with some olive oil. garlic and pepper. Others are not for everyone's taste. I would never eat "eggs with peppers". or "eggs with tomato" The breads look interesting. There are a lot of vegetable, fish and seafood recipes.
The small print on the cover says "Recipes previously published in Cucina and Famiglia", so these are not new recipes. That is a book written by Stanley's mother. It gets excellent reviews, but seems to be quite expensive. "The Tucci Cookbook" is a reasonable price.
