"A seriously comprehensive guide that shows that Italian food is about for more than just pasta and pizza...One for serious Italophiles." (Gordon Ramsey)
First published in 1950 and revised over time, Italy's bestselling culinary "bible," Il Cucchiaio d'argento, now in English, boasts over 2,000 recipes in a beautiful (and weighty) photo-illustrated edition.
Chapters contain recipes for sauces and antipasti through cheese dishes and sweets, with many standout dishes like Genoese Pesto Minestrone, Eggplant and Ricotta Lasagna, and Chocolate and Pear Tart. "Many cooks and cookbook collectors, will want The Silver Spoon. It's an essential document of the Italian table and as such a classic. Indeed, it would be hard to imagine a complete cookbook library without the book. --Arthur Boehm
