#76: The Tucci Table - Stanley Tucci & Felicity Blunt

Featuring family-friendly recipes and stunning photography, an all-new cookbook 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!

REVIEW:
I like the actor, Stanley Tucci, and now I like the chef too! These recipes are the flavors I am used to, and are not overly complicated. In fact, I made two recipes from the book and enjoyed them both.
First I made the potato and leek soup with fried parsley.
The soup was delicious! I will probably not bother with the fried parsley next time, as it was mainly for presentation anyway, but the soup is a definite hit in my home and perfect for the colder months ahead.
Next I made pasta with prosciutto, onions, peas and pancetta.
Another huge hit in my home. What's not to love about a dish with bacon in it? Pancetta is basically Italian bacon. YUM!
I can't wait to browse through again and pick another recipe.
Plus it was nice to read some of Stanley's thoughts in the book about family and food. His wife also added a few words here and there, and it personalized the cooking even more.
I love this cookbook. It is a perfect blend of celebrity and food!

5/5

  2. I didn't know Tucci was a foodie, but since I am not much of one and can't seem to cook without burning myself, this is not surprising lol.

  3. You had me at the glimpse of Stanley Tucci- he has the warmest (like he's guarding the best kept secret) smile ever. This is a must have for me. I saw and adored him playing Julia's hubby, well truthfully every part he's ever had has been so enjoyable for me. Thanks for his wife's twitter I am going to add her! Great post, thanks so much.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
