Stanley Tucci, Honorary Celebrity Chef, Sells Third Cookbook To Publishers
Okay, we’re just going to add Stanley Tucci to our (upcoming!) Power Grid: the dude is a celebrity, and he can cook — well! The latest pit stop in his race to Le Creusets branded with his name: a third cookbook.
Based on the success of The Tucci Cookbook, publishing house Gallery bought the rights to his untitled third book, which will focus on “family-style cooking,” according to Publishers Magazine (subscription required). His first book was based off the recipes in his breakout movie Big Night, and this third book indicates that Tucci is well on the way to becoming a part-time food emperor. It also may have helped a bit that Tucci’s wife, Felicity Blunt, is also a literary agent (whose colleague sold the rights to Tucci’s book), but let’s face it: there is no way that anyone would buy that book if Tucci had not been involved in movies, films, and shows like the ones below:
Given his body of work… we just realized how ironic it was that Tucci starred in The Hunger Games.
