With roles in such foodie movies as "Julie and Julia" and 1996's "Big Night," it's no surprise Stanley Tucci would transfer his love of food from film to the kitchen.The actor appeared on "Live with Kelly and Michael" to whip up a dish from his new cookbook, "The Tucci Cookbook."
"This is my mother's mother's recipe," for tropiano ragu pasta, Tucci explained as he walked co-host Michael Strahan through the steps.
Before showing off his knife skills, the star took time to talk about newlywed life -- Tucci married Felicity Blunt (sister to his "The Devil Wears Prada" co-star Emily Blunt) in August.
"Was it love at first sight?" Strahan asked.
"No," Tucci deadpanned. "It was for her."
The couple share a love for food that was apparent at their wedding reception -- the wedding cake was made entirely of cheese.
