Taste: My Life Through Food
From award-winning actor and food obsessive Stanley Tucci comes an intimate and charming memoir of life in and out of the kitchen.
Before Stanley Tucci became a household name with The 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 homemade magic of those meals with us in The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table, and now he takes us beyond the recipes and into the memories they inspired stories behind them.
Taste is a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about growing up in Westchester, NY, preparing for and filming the foodie films Big Night and Julie & 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, Taste is for readers of Bill Buford, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Ruth Reichl — and anyone who knows the power of a home-cooked meal.
