**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! Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Stanley Tucci is an actor, known for his roles in The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia. In 1996,  Tucci co-wrote and starred in a movie called Big Night, about two brothers who have one night to save their Italian restaurant. The movie has achieved cult status, earning many fans for Tucci and his costar Anthony Shaloub. Tucci has always loved to cook, and follows his successful 2012  The Tucci Cookbook with a new cookbook, The Tucci Table, filled with recipes from himself, his family and even some famous friends, written with his wife Felicity Blunt, sister of actress Emily Blunt. From his late friend actress Natasha Richardson, whom he said was "an extraordinary cook who threw some of the best dinner parties I have ever attended', he shares her Pissaladiere, topped with anchovies, onions and olives. His son Nico's Pasta with Proscuitto, Onions, Peas and Pancetta looks like a winning dish to me, and I appreciated the detailed instructions on the carbonara finish to the dish. He also tells some funny stories, like the time he asked Felicity what she wanted to cook for a dinner party the following weekend. She decided on a suckling pig, which was problematic since neither had ever cooked one before. They got a whole pig from the butcher, but it was too long to fit on their barbeque spit. So they got out the hacksaw and tried to cut off the pig's head, when their children came home from school to see the carnage. The book is heavy on Italian food, naturally, and I am tempted to try his Polenta Fries, which Tucci calls a great alternative to French fries. They look delicious. Tucci formatted the book so that the directions come first, then the ingredients, which may confuse some people. This is a book for confident cooks, more casual cooks who like to go more by instinct than exact measurements. (See glug of olive oil, above) Reading The Tucci Table is like sitting in Tucci's kitchen, and you can hear his voice as you read his stories about how his mother-in-law makes it this way, and he got this recipe on location in Atlanta for The Hunger Games.

Stanley Tucci in his new book, “The Tucci Table” published by Gallery Books teams with Felicity Blunt to give us recipes for Cooking With Family and Friends. From the back cover: 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! Stanley Tucci has received and Emmy and a Golden Globe, was nominated for an Academy Award as well as a Tony and a Grammy. However he should also receive an award for his cooking. Mr. Tucci and his wife, Felicity Blunt, have opened their Dining Room and Kitchen for us to come and cook with them and, by extension, eat with them. Mr. Tucci feels that the recipes we grew up we know by cooking with them and they are more than likely not written down. Therefore they can be lost forever. Mr. Tucci has taken this opportunity to write them down for us to use in our kitchens. You are going to want to create every single recipe in the book and your family and friends will love you even more for making them. Mr. Tucci has provided recipes that you will not get anywhere else. Want to cook Italian as well as some British? Then “The Tucci Table” is the cookbook for you. You will be constantly using this book. It is just that good! Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Gallery Books. I was not required to write a positive review.
