   Bravo Mr. Tucci!
First let me admit that I am a huge fan of Stanley Tucci as a film actor. I watched Big Night at least a dozen times and immediately wanted an Italian feast. This book IS that Feast! The book is FILLED with wonderful recipes that most any home cook can recreate. Tucci even includes the recipe for the timpano and we are going to give it a try during the holidays. The small stories throughout the book offer such a wonderful peek into Italian family life and kitchen sensibilities and offers such warmth and charm. In the short time I have had to cook, I have read it cover to cover and tried several recipes... all excellent! This is not a cookbook that sits on a shelf. It is one that will be used over and over again and passed with olive oil and tomato sauce smudges.
Using the library's copy of the Tucci cookbook, I tried three of Maria Rosa's recipes with rotini, the chicken chops and Risotto with shrimp. All are tasty and call for ingredients on hand or easily obtained. All of them were made as weekday meals. The directions are clear and the photographs are terrific, as others have noted. Now I bought the book for myself and look forward to trying many more recipes in it.
   A family cooking story
The Tucci Cookbook, written by Stanley Tucci, his mother, his father and a family friend who is a chef, is not only a great, easy to use cookbook, filled with wonderful tried and true family recipes. It is also the story of a family's love of fresh food and their enjoyment in preparing the food together as a family. The recipes are simple and appealing and not only include pastas, but also wonderful vegetable dishes as well as meat and fish dishes. If you like Stanley Tucci as an actor, you will love reading this book about his family and their love of good food!
   Great Book
Stanley Tucci wrote a really enjoyable book, Stanley Tucci. Had to buy it for myself and my sister. My sister also loved it. His recipes are great. His stories are even better, coming from an Italian or any background, how can you miss this read?
   Gotta love Tucci!!
I am a big Stanley Tucci fan!!! Julia and Julia, especially Julie and Julia and I love to cook. I bought this because I bought it from all three, the film, the cooking and Tucci. Cookbook very nice.
   Love Stanley Tucci
I have made many of Mr. Tucci's recipes and they are surprisingly easy and so very delicious. It is one of my favorite go-to books. You can put together one of his recipes and can be for a formal dinner or a quiet get-together with friends. He is a gentleman and great actor and also a great cook. This cookbook so much loved. I have bought two others for a family member and a friend. So recommend this cookbook highly. So, recommend this cookbook. You won 't be disappointed!
Not only is this great actor a wonderful book, he is a wonderful book and I am from an Italian background, so I know from whence I speak. It is written in a very easy way and is well used.
   The Tucci Cookbook
This was also a gift, bu I read it before I gave it away. I just loved the personal touch that Stanley adds. My sister made several recipes and were a big hit.
   Love That Tucci!
This is more than a cookbook - it is a wonderfully engaging look at the side of Stanley Tucci that is rich in his ancestry and filled with recipes that are sooo delicious!
A great Italian cook book ; I married an Italian with a Sicilian mother ; she taught me to cook, but can always use more regular recipes.
