Season two of ‘Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy’ is arriving soon fresh from the forno

Stanley Tucci you sensual Italian man. The only thing we'd prefer to tuck into more than you, is the plate of pasta alla norma you introduced us to in the first season of Stanley Tucci: Searching for ItalyAnd considering it's been months since we last inhaled all six episodes of the TV series, we're absolutely famished.

Thankfully, we won't have to wait too much longer to let Stanley Tucci guide us gently through the regions of Italy, led only by his cravings and an appetite for culture. Over Instagram the actor announced that season two is set to line our stomachs on March 13 on CNN. Although for those of us in Australia, we may have to wait a little while longer for the promised "Risotto, Pasta, Wild Boar, Truffles, and Barolo" as it's no easy feat finding an avenue to watch the show.

While we suss out ways to view Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, another topic up for consideration is where on earth Tucci will take us in this new season? He's traversed through Naples and the Amalfi Coast, eaten his way through Rome, covered ground in Bologna and Sicily, and sampled the hearty fare of Milan and Tuscany. Personally, as someone with roots in Calabria just like Tucci, my bets are on him visiting this southern region of Italy for 'nduja, zeppole, figs, and possibly mostaccioli?

Since we're in for truffles that can only mean one thing, the promise of seeing a few Lagotto Romagnolo's on screen. If there was anyway to increase viewership it would of course be to throw a couple of truffle-smelling dogs into the mix. Also, as Barolo is on the list of delights we can expect in the new season, prepare to take a trip to Piedmont.

Considering a trip to Europe is a far off fantasy, we'll be living vicariously through Stanley in this new season.
