About the Author
Stanley Tucci is an actor, writer, director, and producer. He has directed five films and appeared in over seventy films, countless television shows, and a dozen plays on and off Broadway. He has been nominated for an Academy Award, a Tony, and a spoken word Grammy; is a winner of two Golden Globes and six Emmys; and has received numerous other critical and professional awards and accolades. A lover of all things culinary, Stanley wrote and directed Big Night, the critically acclaimed movie about two brothers running a failing restaurant, starred in Julie & Julia, and is the host of three-time Emmy winning Searching for Italy. He is also pretty adept with a cocktail shaker. He is the author of Taste: My Life Through Food and two cookbooks, The Tucci Table and The Tucci Cookbook.
Reviews
"Through food and scenes of family life, Stanley Tucci shares both his personal story and his celebration of all-things taste. With tales from peanut butter sandwiches to lobster in Maine, with recipes from the perfect Negroni to his wife's roast potatoes, he draws us to his table. Come hungry for the food, the cocktails, the gossip and the fun. Just never, ever, cut up your spaghetti." -Yotam Ottolenghi

"An instant classic, Stanley Tucci's TASTE is as captivating, simple, charming and insanely moreish as the best Italian food. Take it to bed with you and you will fall asleep dreaming you're in Italy. But take it to the kitchen and you will find yourself using it as often as a pan or a peeler." -Stephen Fry

"A delicious story of appetite, family and pasta. A serious amount of pasta. In this gloriously written memoir, the ever tasteful Stanley Tucci invites us to his table and feeds us all the good stuff." -Jay Rayner

"It's impossible to read this without becoming ravenous!" -Nigella Lawson
"Our relationship with fire and food has shaped us as human beings, it connects us in a unique way, to ourselves, the people we love and this beautiful planet we live on. It is a wonderful story of and told by a wonderful man through his food memories. It is as infectious as it is delicious, as funny as it is insightful. The only reason to put this book down, is to go cook and eat from it." -Heston Blumenthal
"Funny, heart-breaking, fascinating, intimate and beautifully-written." -Kate Mosse
"This superb book...Taste enriches the reader and establishes Tucci as one of the wisest and most generous personalities of our time." -- Roger Lewis, Daily Mail
"The man, the myth, The Devil Wears Prada legend Stanley Tucci has blessed our hungry souls with a food memoir to feed our mounting appetite for the actor and cook's wit, warmth and, let's face it: tight polo shirts. He divulges some of his most treasured memories and stories behind favourite recipes -- prepare to feel bereaved when it's over."--Joanna Taylor, Evening Standard
"Reading this book will make you more attentive to the glorious -- or modest -- food on your table, and to the people with whom you are privileged to share it." --Jennifer Reese, The Washington Post
"Like the enormous layered pasta pie that starred in the 1996 movie Big Night, Stanley Tucci's new memoir is a gastronome's delight." --Bookpage
"Tucci is not only a prolific actor and writer, but his zest for food, travel, culture, and life is contagious." --Edith G. Tolchin, New York Journal of Books
