Author Talk and Book Signing, Max Tucci, The Delmonico Way: Sublime Entertaining and Legendary Recipes from the Restaurant that made New York
From 1827 to 1923, Delmonico’s flourished in the heart of Wall Street, only to be shuttered by prohibition. Oscar Tucci, a Tuscan immigrant, reopened it three years later in 1926 as a speakeasy. For six decades, it flourished as a beacon of fine dining. Frequented by celebrities, presidents, royalty, and tycoons, it was known for its glamour, sophistication, legendary libations, and superb fare, the Delmonico Way. Max Tucci is a multi-award-winning writer, producer, philanthropist, TV and radio personality, host of Max & Friends, and now a historian of the Delmonico legacy. Each chapter in this beautiful book focuses on a style of fine dining perfected by his grandfather featuring recipes and tales layered with vintage photos and illustrations.
