The multi-awarded actor’s relaxed yet passionate approach to food inspired CNN to enlist the actor in their new travel show entitled Searching for Italy.
The show takes Tucci to different locations in Italy to discover their native cuisines.
In doing so, he also mingles with the locals to learn about their stories and how food plays a part in their lives.
During the recent Critics Choice Real TV Awards, Tucci, who hosts, writes and produces for the show, expressed his gratitude for the honor. He also thanked his partners in developing the travel and food show.
“I would also like to thank the people of Italy who always give themselves so generously,” he said.
