Named a Notable Book of 2021 by NPR and The Washington Post

From award-winning actor and food obsessive Stanley Tucci comes an intimate and charming memoir of life in and out of the kitchen.

Stanley Tucci grew up in an Italian American family that spent every night around the kitchen table. He shared the magic of those meals with us in The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table, and now he takes us beyond the savory recipes and into the compelling stories behind them.​

Taste 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.

Written with Stanley’s signature wry humor, Taste is for fans of Bill Buford, Gabrielle Hamilton, and Ruth Reichl—and anyone who knows the power of a home-cooked meal.

Mr. Tucci is too pompous and haughty. It was difficult to swallow (pun intended.)

Not what I thought it would be. I would like to remove it from my library.

First of all, It will make you want to cook and eat and drink! If you were born in Stanley's era, it will bring back so many memories of your childhood. Stanley life is not only interesting but he really sounds like one terrific guy, who has come through some very difficult times in his life. I loved listening to stories about his Italian family. Although I am not Italian, most of my Italian friend's families sound very similar. I think from growing up like with them, I may sound like an Italian mom myself! Great story, great TV series, never wanted either to end. Now I am off to cook one of his these delicious recipes and cocktails! Ciao!
