Reviews, News & Interviews:



Some cookbooks are visually inspiring but don't deliver on the recipe front and are cool in tone; others are like a glimpse into someone's life - warm and inviting, with recipes that make you want to join the family party. The new book by American actor Stanley Tucci (of Devil Wears Prada, Hunger Games and, more recently, TV series Fortitude fame) and his wife Felicity Blunt falls into the latter category. It makes you want to draw up a chair at their kitchen table, be part of their family, dive in and eat the food.  Karen Barnes, Delicious

Tucci is a foodie who loves a culinary get-together, and offers up warmly annotated, user-friendly recipes that reflect his Italian-American background and that of his (British) second wife Felicity Blunt.  Metro

The Tucci Table is not a book of fashionable recipes but a collection of dishes to cook for family and friends - a love letter to his Italian culinary heritage, his wife's classic English cooking, and all the people who matter most in their lives.  Shane Watson, The Times
