—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)

This is one of the best Italian cookbooks I've ever bought (and I own an entire collection). Stanley Tucci's recipes are simple yet creative. He dedicates the book to his family (and ours!) and it couldn't be more appropriate. Filled with memories and flavors, this is a cookbook that not only celebrates Italian food but family! Trust me, you'll want to plan a dinner party the moment you crack open the spine. I'm going to buy a copy for everyone on my Christmas list!
What we have here is a collection of simple recipes that characterise good, old-fashioned Italian home cooking. Some of them are incredibly simple - roast potatoes with rosemary, spaghetti with fresh tomatoes, and ziti with broccoli, for example. And none of them, not even the formidable timpano, is beyond any cook with even a modicum of experience.
Combined with the family lore in the introduction and included with most of the recipes, this is a comfortable and cosy book that will give you an appetite and inspire you to cook something delicious.
