Joan Tropiano Tucci — mother of Stanley Tucci, producer and star of the movie Big Night — and Gianni Scappin-who taught Stanley how to cook for his performance as Secondo in Big Night — join together to bring you over 200 of their favourite Italian family recipes. Brimming with family anecdotes and filled with easy and accessible Italian dishes along with wine pairings, Stanley Tucci: Family, Friends and Food is a delightful peek into what it means to grow up in an Italian family.

Feel like a member of the family as you thumb through family photographs and enjoy recipes like Fried Zucchini Fritters, Stuffed Mushrooms, Lasagna Made with Polenta and Gorgonzola Cheese, Linguine with Clam Sauce, Veal Chops Stuffed with Fontina and Prosciutto, Chicken Cacciatore, and Mamma's Little Fritters.

Chefs and actors share a wonderful bond, the warm friendship of their respective colleagues. Stanley has learned to straddle both professions and this terrific book is a testament. Jonathan Waxman
Full Review

Many of the recipes have been passed down through generations and haven’t changed in more than a hundred years — quite likely because they’re pretty much near perfect just the way they are.

Simple and elegant.
The Credits

The book is a broader, more polished version of 1999’s Cucina & Famiglia, written by Joan and Scappin after fans kept asking about the delicious-looking meals depicted in Big Night. Now, the reissue features slick photographs, along with wine pairings by Tyler Colman. Thankfully, what haven’t changed are the authentic Italian recipes, or the family anecdotes that accompany each one.

Tucci’s recipes evoke the comforting, elegant simplicity of Italian home cooking.
