Featuring family-friendly recipes and stunning photography, a cookbook filled with traditional and modern Italian dishes from New York Times bestselling author, beloved actor, and respected foodie Stanley Tucci.
Stanley Tucci’s association with wonderful foods began for fans with the movie Big Night and resonated in his role as Julia Child’s husband in Julie & Julia. But well before these films, he was enjoying innovative homemade Italian meals throughout his childhood, when family and food were nearly inseparable and cooking was always a familial venture.
Now, in a completely new, family-focused cookbook, Tucci captivates food lovers’ imaginations with recipes from his traditional Italian roots as well as those of his British wife, Felicity Blunt, tied together with a modern American ribbon. The time-tested recipes include pasta alla bottarga, mushroom-stuffed trout, pork chops with onions and mustard sauce, barbeque chicken wings, and much, much more! Nothing will make you happier to spend time with family than the aroma of a hearty Italian dish sizzling on the stovetop.
Featuring 100 luscious new full-color photographs, The Tucci Table captures the true joys of family cooking. Buon apetito!
The Tucci Table soups and salads
“During Felicity’s first summer in New York, we planted a vegetable garden together. We made almost daily runs to the nursery to buy topsoil, compost, and manure to enrich the soil. Too much manure, it turned out, because everything tasted like sh*t. The only vegetables that flourished were the tomatoes. Having achieved the proper balance, our garden in London has successfully yielded zucchini, spring onions, runner beans, and, of course, tomatoes. We are still working on the lettuce.”
Italian American actor Stanley Tucci was born in New York in 1960. He has directed five films and appeared over seventy films, including The Devil Wears Prada, Easy A, The Terminal, and Road to Perdition, as well as more than a dozen plays, on and off Broadway.

He is the winner of two Golden Globes and two Emmys. Tucci’s foodie TV show, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, recently aired on CBS and is nominated for an Emmy.
