Stanley Tucci Searching for Italy starts on CNN International 20 June 2021

Stanley Tucci - Searching for Italy

Well, this is exciting!

We know Stanley is happily married to Emily Blunt’s sister and lives in London bliss (as in, he’s not queer!) but let’s face it – Stanley is a GAY ICON. The Devil Wears Prada and Burlesque alone would catapult him into the queeresphere (I made that up), plus his forthcoming gay role with Colin Firth in Supernova, plus a general “fabulously put together” camp masculinity that can be seen everywhere.

But for pure Stanley Tucci porn, and Italy porn, and Food porn, then we are slightly over-excited for Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy – a new six-part series for CNN that follows the Tuchmeister as he travels across Italy to discover the secrets and delights of the country’s regional cuisines.

The Americans have already had it – and LOVED it by all accounts, ranking Number One in various impressive demos.

But now it is the rest of the world’s turn. So set your alarms for 9pm ET (4pm London time) on Sunday 20 June 2021 for the first part in the series. The show will also air on Sundays at 7am, 11am, 2pm ET and Wednesdays at 7am, 2pm and 9pm ET. So there’s no excuse to miss it!

Stanley promises to take us along with him as he enjoys the luxurious creamy carbonara of Rome, the delicious simplicity of Sicily’s pasta alla Norma, the saffron-infused silkiness of risotto in Milan, the crispy tenderness of bistecca alla fiorentina, the perfect classic ragu alla bolognese and the world’s best pizza in Naples. Tucci comes prepared with a bottomless appetite for it all, showing us how the diversity of Italian cooking offers a gateway through which you can glimpse Italy’s history and culture.

Each episode sees him visit a different region or city of Italy, including Tuscany, Sicily, Milan, Rome, Bologna, and Naples/The Amalfi Coast. Watch the trailer below for a sneak peak.

London-based RAW TV has made it, and we salute them!
