Overview

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!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/17/2014
Fans of The Tucci Cookbook hoping for another helping of Tucci’s rich trove of family recipes may not find this book very satisfying. The married coauthors pay homage to their respective Italian and British heritages in an attempt to “express the new culinary traditions we are in the process of creating for the next generation.” The book emphasizes the importance of the “family table,” and indeed the whole family shows up, with recipes from Tucci’s children, parents, in-laws, and friends. What could be a charmingly eclectic collection of favorite dishes comes across as disjointed and arbitrary. A chapter on salads includes puntarella salad with anchovy dressing (a very Roman dish inspired by a dinner in London) alongside Ryan’s Kale and Amino Acid Salad (credited to a friend’s personal chef). A section on side dishes features vegetable parmigiana as well as Yorkshire pudding. Desserts jump from tarte tatin to blondies to a Sbagliato granita. That said, the celebrity-obsessed may get a thrill from inclusions like Emily’s Chicken Noodle Soup (from Blunt’s sister, actress Emily Blunt) or a recipe for pissaladière from the late Natasha Richardson. Tucci and Blunt’s passion for cooking (and each other—their love story is described in the introduction and in anecdotes throughout) is evident, but it doesn’t shine through in every recipe. (Nov.)
Mario Batali
“With recipes that are simple to make and magnificently delicious, The Tucci Table is a mouthwatering food porn manifesto—these are the meals I want every day to feed my libidinous, gluttonous, and sinful soul.”

Read an Excerpt

The Tucci Table

“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.”

—Stanley

    **I was given an ARC of this book in exchange of an honest review

    I am an avid reader of cookbooks, always looking for new recipes, so when I saw one written by one of my favorite versatile actors, I was really happy. This book was everything I could hope for. It gave me an opportunity to learn a little about the real man that has brought much joy to my family as well as learn some new recipes and great twists on old favorites. I loved how he made many of the recipes personal and included recipes from other stars I had heard of. I really enjoyed it.

    Let me just start off with WOW! The tomato soup is to die for and that's only the first recipe. I actually had to stop reading and make it. The more pages I turned, the closer I got to my own kitchen. I truly wanted to start cooking right away! I adore Stanley Tucci and while reading this book I felt as if he and Felicity were standing next to me telling me these stories as we cooked together. Though it was a little hard imagining her as I've never heard her voice before but it was amazing all the same.

    I haven't enjoyed reading a cookbook like this in such a long time. Thank you Stanley and Felicity. I would highly recommend this cookbook to everyone!
