More than two years after Stanley Tucci wowed the internet with his mesmerizing Negroni tutorial, the actor and filmmaker has us charmed again. This time around, Tucci’s viral moment involved her effortlessly sophisticated choice of birthday cake.
On November 11, the TASTE: My life through food The author celebrated his 62nd birthday with an intimate reunion of family and friends, and instead of a birthday cake overflowing with buttercream, Tucci received a wheel of cheese.
“Is it a Pecorino?” Tucci asked his wife after being serenaded with “Happy Birthday.” After being told it was ‘old goat’s cheese’, he quipped, ‘That makes sense’.
“My kind of cake,” Tucci wrote in the caption of the Instagram video. His post was met with birthday wishes from actress Julianne Moore and Ina Garten.
As author of several food books and host of CNN shows In search of Italy, the actor has made us discover his world of gastronomy, wine and travel on numerous occasions. More recently, Tucci partnered with S.Pellegrino Sparkling Water on “S.Pellegrino’s Taste of Tucci” recipe kit. The kit, provided by the World Chef meal kit service, includes everything you need to create Tucci’s signature recipe for Gnocchetti con Salsiccia e Broccolini.
