Actor Stanley Tucci is launching his second cookbook.
The Julie & Julia star first showed off his love of the kitchen by sharing secret family recipes in passion project Cucina & Famiglia in 1999.

It also means we start talking about Vine Talk, a faintly ridiculous public broadcast TV wine show in which Tucci presides over a table of cheese-nibbling, wine-supping celebrity friends. So he's something of a wine expert?
