The Tucci Cookbook: Family, Friends and Food (Hardback)Stanley Tucci (author)
From Venetian seafood salad to roast duck with fresh figs, the delicious recipes in the celebrated actor's debut cookbook deliver innovative spins on Italian classics that budding cooks will simply adore.
What is it about a good Italian supper that feels like home, no matter where you come from? Heaped plates of steaming pasta...crisp fresh vegetables...simple hearty soups...sumptuous stuffed meats...all punctuated with luscious, warm confections.
For acclaimed actor Stanley Tucci, teasing our taste buds in classic foodie films such as Big Night and Julie & Julia was a logical progression from a childhood filled with innovative homemade Italian meals: decadent Venetian Seafood Salad; rich and gratifying Lasagne Made with Polenta and Gorgonzola Cheese; spicy Spaghetti with Tomato and Tuna; delicate Pork Fillet with Fennel and Rosemary; fruity Roast Duck with Fresh Figs; flavourful Baked Whole Fish in an Aromatic Salt Crust; savoury Aubergine and Courgette Casserole with Potatoes; buttery Plum and Polenta Cake; and yes, of course, the legendary Timpano.
Featuring nearly 200 irresistible recipes, perfectly paired with delicious wines, The Tucci Cookbook is brimming with robust flavours, beloved Italian traditions, mouthwatering photographs and engaging, previously untold stories from the family's kitchen.
