Foreword by Stanley Tucci

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 favorite Italian family recipes. Brimming with family anecdotes and filled with easy and accessible Italian dishes, Cucina & Famiglia is a delightful peek into what it means to grow up in an Italian family.

Feel like a member of the clan 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 (flavored with lemon and grappa). You'll never feel so at home.
