    There are very few celebrities whose meals interest me. (Yes, I do hate Instagram, thank you.) But here’s one: Stanley Tucci, who announced today that he’s working on a memoir called Taste: My Life Through Food. Publisher Gallery Books described it as “intimate and charming reflection of Tucci’s life and relationship to​ food,” and People reports that “it will feature anecdotes and memories from his childhood in Westchester, New York, as well as his culinary experiences preparing for roles in foodie films like 1996’s Big Night and 2009’s Julie & Julia.”

    It will also feature Tucci’s reflections on “falling in love over dinner and his home life with wife Felicity Blunt, where he is frequently whipping up meals for their family.” Which, of course it will. I love him.

    Tucci is also the author of The Tucci Table and, of course, the perfect Negroni. I know I’m not alone when I say: swoon.
