Author Tucci, Stanley
Cover Hardback

From award-winning actor and foodobsessiveStanley Tucci comes an intimate and charming memoir of life in and out of the kitchen.

Before Stanley Tucci became a household name withThe Devil Wears Prada, The Hunger Games,and the perfect Negroni, he grew up in an Italian American family that spent every night around the table. He shared the magic of those meals with us inThe Tucci CookbookandThe Tucci Table, and now he takes us beyond the recipes and into the stories behind them.

Tasteis a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about growing up in Westchester, NY, preparing for and filming the foodie filmsBig NightandJulie & Julia, falling in love over dinner, and teaming up with his wife to create conversation-starting meals for their children. Each morsel of this gastronomic journey through good times and bad, five-star meals and burnt dishes, is as heartfelt and delicious as the last.

Written with Stanley's signature wry humor and nostalgia,Tasteis for readers of Bill Buford, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Ruth Reichl—and anyone who knows the power of a home-cooked meal.
