  • Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy

    I have a recommendation for you. CNN's Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy is an engrossing look at various regions of Italy through the medium of food. It's a visual, cultural and culinary feast. My wife and I loved the first episode in which he explored areas of the Compania region.
    This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

    He's a very engaging man - looking forward to the rest of the show.

      We really enjoyed the first episode, but almost in unison commented, he is not Anthony Bourdain ....

        You're right. He doesn't have Bourdain's personality or ability to relate to people. That said, he has his own charm, which is much more reserved. Wouldn't you just love to travel to the areas he featured and dine at all of the restaurants he visited? My wife and I would run there.

          Only seen bits and pieces of the show. A marvelous feast for the eyes from what I saw.

            The Rome episode was very good

              Well produced show. The flow is excellent. Weird it being on CNN. The Italian part of me likes it.

                Love the show, would really like to travel the featured areas and dine at all of them as you said and just take it all in. My mom was born and grew up in Corleone Sicily and my dad was born in Cosenza in Calabria, it was so interesting listening to stories they used to tell around the supper table

                  What I am enjoying is the realization that great cities like Rome, deserve time, not the usual quick run to the 8 TripAdvisor must sees

                        What a lovely place that is and actually preferred it to Capri.

                          I was born in Piedmonte. Whatever algorithms the cyber world uses I am bombarded with adds to watch this show. I'll do it at some point, perhaps after a nice truffle, cinghiale meal and a good Barolo.

                            I got over the "I wish he was Bourdain" and started recording the whole series. I watched the first and second, and enjoyed them.

                            I may never get to all those parts of Italy, but what a great way to peek in!
                            Still getting the hang of this game!

                              There's only one AB. Glad he's not trying to replicate him. For some reason I'd like to know how much these restaurant and cafe meals cost.
