Tucci exclaimed about winning the 2023 Trailblazer Award, "I am overwhelmed with gratitude to IACP for recognizing me as a Trailblazer. I am honoring my ancestors, my grandfather Oscar Tucci, my grandmother Sesta, my father Mario, and my aunt Mary, continuing thier legacy is an honor. They have paved a wonderful yellow brick road for me with Delmonico's, so I must continue to do their work. Delmonico's is older than the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, and even Grand Central Station.. it is my goal to move Delmonico's forward, while looking back. Remembering, the Delmonico brothers, and the Tucci family. It brings me enormous satisfaction to say that Delmonico's is reopened and is welcoming all to the table."

The International Association of Culinary Professionals was founded in 1975 by members which included Julia Child and Jaques Pépin.
