Product Description

Review

"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

Format: Hardcover
A behemoth of a book, delivering to lovers of Italian food over 200 recipes, details of dozens of wine pairings and a lot of commentary to boot by Italian-American author and actor Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada, The Terminal, etc).

This book is described as a love letter to his parents, to his Italian roots and to the entire Italian-American "experience", a combination of recipe book, history book and social commentary all wrapped up in a parcel like a piece of perfect pasta. Many books tend to feature some form of tribute or history, ascribed to the author's love and enthusiasm to their roots and being, yet not so many manage to make a lengthy, comprehensive section really readable and engaging. Even though you don't know the family and possibly don't know the background, you can begin to feel that you are a lot closer after reading this.

Wine is an often misunderstood, under-utilised and wrongly-applied addition to a mealtime and here an engaging, informative section provides a clear, common-sense overview that might help you broaden your horizons and select wines to really enhance and highlight your meal. Of course, should you not imbibe, you can still enjoy the knowledge and understand the symmetrical relationship between wine and food. Should you imbibe, you can only benefit.

Then it is on to the food, with the chapters split into appetisers and salads; soups; eggs; bread and pizza; pasta; rice and risotto; vegetables and side dishes; meat; poultry; fish and shellfish and finally deserts. Whilst there may be many familiar recipes within this book, there might be a different twist, a particular variation or some unknown nugget of knowledge waiting to be consumed.

The whole Tucci clan really know their food. In fact, they don't just know it; they live, breathe, dream it. And most of all, they eat it. From the preparing, to the assembling, the cooking to the eating, Stanley Tucci's enthusiasm for taste, flavour, and ultimately just good food literally jump from every page of this stunning new cookbook. First off, the photography really is mouth-wateringly sumptuous. And it comes with wine pairings - what more could you want?! I'm going home to make a risotto with butternut squash and lobster right now. And pair it with the perfect wine.
