Making a Negroni Cocktail with Stanley Tucci

From loading up the shaker with ice to pouring in the gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, The Devil Wears Prada star walked followers through the entire process. He even told his fans which glass and garnish they should use for the drink.

While Tucci made the concoction for his wife Felicity Blunt, he didn’t hand it over to her right away.

“You want it, Felicity?” he teased his spouse, who handled the camerawork for the cocktail class. “That will never happen.”

It wasn’t long before the video went viral.  READ MORE

After persuading the Golden Globes to go vegan, Joaquin Phoenix then convinced his powerful Hollywood agency, WME, to give up meat for the Oscars.

The agency threw its starry annual pre-Oscars party in Beverly Hills on Friday and offered stars including Leo DiCaprio, Jason Momoa, Wiz Khalifa and Miley Cyrus an entirely plant-based vegan spread.  READ MORE

RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2019 - Press Day

Stanley Tucci may not be the best-known name in Hollywood (I’m not making that assumption, Saturday Night Live did a whole sketch about it). But you’ve definitely seen Stanley Tucci. Beyond The Hunger Games and The Devil Wears Prada, he has over 100 acting credits to his name.

He also has some legit culinary cred: In 1996, he wrote, directed, and starred in Big Night, a movie about two brothers running an Italian restaurant. He’s co-owned a restaurant himself and published cookbooks including The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table. Plus, he’s worked with our own Ray Isle! Now, the typically supporting actor will have a starring role on the small screen: hosting his own culinary documentary series for CNN.

Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy is slated to be a four-part original CNN series following the actor on a food tour of Italy.   READ MORE
