Food is love. In the wake of his recent popular CNN series "Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy" and lesson on how to make negroni's on his insta feed, The New Yorker has referred to Tucci's "unexpected late-career reinvention as a sex symbol" in a recent article "The Timeless Fantasy of Stanley Tucci Eating Italian Food." And we're happy for him. Though this development does remind us of being die-hard Shelby Lynne fans in 1999 when, after her sixth studio album, she was given the Grammy for Best New Artist. This was neither unexpected, nor late, nor a reinvention. Because Tucci opened up Paradise for us in Big Night back in 1996, and in our cookbook he's been sexy every day since.
