CNN  — 

Stanley Tucci traveled around Italy to discover the secrets and delights of the country’s regional cuisines. In season two, he explored Sardinia, Calabria, Puglia and Liguria.

“I’ve traveled through this peninsula searching for a definition of a country that is at once welcoming and resistant, beautiful and dark, ancient and young,” Tucci said in the season finale.

“Pieces of the country we all know as Italy are to be found in the hills, fields, homes, mountains, castles, ruins and medieval streets, but my search has led me to realize that Italy as a single, pure entity is to be found only at the table.”

Now, season two of “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy” has ended, so we rounded up the best moments.
