Stanley Tucci’s Taste: My Life Through Food
Scripps Presents, in partnership with the Smithsonian Associates, will host award-winning actor and food obsessive Stanley Tucci this October!
Tucci, who grew up in an Italian American family that spent every night around the kitchen table, has shared the magic of those meals in The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table. Now, he goes beyond the savory recipes and into the compelling stories behind them.
His new book Taste: My Life Through Food is a reflection on the intersection of food and life, filled with anecdotes about his growing up in Westchester, New York; preparing for and shooting the foodie films Big Night and Julie & Julia; falling in love over dinner; and teaming up with his wife to create meals for a multitude of children. Each morsel of this gastronomic journey through good times and bad, five-star meals and burned dishes, is as heartfelt and delicious as the last.
Join Tucci as he discusses his favorite food memories; his recent series for CNN, “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy”; and what he’s most looking forward to in the future of food. Ina Garten joins him for a conversation.
