Tucci, who is Italian on both sides, brings us on his journey to the bustling food markets, delectable home cooking and hidden trattorias of the Italian peninsula. From the hearty, traditional dishes in Umbria to the unique cuisine of Venice, this is a deeply personal, witty and warm odyssey of gastronomic delights.
