“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)

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!
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.
