Are we sad about two pictures of Stanley Tucci featured above? We are not. Are we sad about anything in this book? Mostly, we're just envious, really.
About the book:
This one does what it says on the tin - it follows Stanley on his lifelong journey with food, interspersed with traditional family recipes and less-conventional food and drink inventions from Tucci himself.
A bit about the author:
We've probably all seen Stanley Tucci in something - between E.R., The Devil Wears Prada, Easy A and even Miami Vice, Tucci has been an on-screen staple for over two decades now, more recently turning his hand to travel & cooking shows.
Why we’re crushing on this read:
A foodie book that's not too foodie. No need to know much about mise en place!
It's witty, it's a joyful, it's even a little catty from time to time and there are plenty of great moments of name-dropping some top-class TV and movie names. It's a heartwarming read about how important food can be within a family and amongst friends all across the world. It's the golden thread that's woven through what Stanley gratefully admits has been an exceptionally beautiful life. And it has recipes! Win!
