Max Tucci brings glamour and style into your home, with his new cookbook THE DELMONICO WAY: SUBLIME ENTERTAINING & LEGENDARY RECIPES FROM THE RESTAURANT THAT MADE NEW YORK!-Rizzoli 2022 Featuring stories, ideas for entertaining, and seventy-five recipes including his grandfather's creation, the wedge salad. Also featured are Oysters Rockefeller, a show-stopping seafood tower and ribeye Bordelaise. And recipes from two of the restaurant's most famous alumni, Sirio Maccioni's Pasta Primavera and Tony May's trademarked Uovo Raviolo and cocktails such as the classic Delmonico, a Negroni with a Delmonico way twist, and the festive Spencer cocktail created by artist Ashley Longshore's grandmother. Delmonico's from 1827 to the 1980s shaped New York City's restaurant scene. Under the original ownership of The Delmonico Brothers, Delmonico's introduced the first farm-to-table concept, à la carte dining complete with white tablecloths and menus. Despite Delmonico's triumphs, the impact of World War I and Prohibition caused the family to cease operations, shuttering the restaurant in 1923. In 1926 a new era for Delmonico's arose. Oscar Tucci, a Tuscan immigrant, took over ownership and re-established Delmonico's first as a Speakeasy while continuing the Delmonico brothers' tradition, transforming it back into a beacon of fine dining. Oscar developed a strict code of hospitality, etiquette, and operations known as the Delmonico way. Join Max as he opens the doors of his family's Delmonico's, welcoming us to a world when dining out was a glamorous affair. Royalty, celebrities, socialites, U.S. presidents, foreign dignitaries, and business tycoons frequented Delmonico's. Elizabeth Taylor, President John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, Rock Hudson, Marilyn Monroe, Lena Horne, Gypsy Rose Lee, Eva Gabor, King Umberto II of Italy, Christine Jorgensen, and Joan Crawford were among some of the most notable names that Tucci welcomed to his tables which were famously adorned with Ginori, Baccarat, and Christofle. Renowned designer Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich expertly layers photographs, ephemera, menus, and other gems featured in THE DELMONICO WAY that remind us that entertaining with elegance, sophistication, and intention remain just as relevant today as it did during the height of the Tucci era.
