The Silver Spoon, the most influential and successful Italian cookbook of the last 50 years, is now available in a brand new revised edition.

Originally published in 1950, it became an instant classic, selling over one million copies in eight editions. Considered essential in every household, it continues to be one Italy’s the most popular wedding presents.

The Silver Spoon was first conceived and published by Domus, Italy’s famed design and architectural magazine. A select group of cooking experts were commissioned to collect hundreds of traditional Italian recipes and make them available for the first time to a wider modern audience. In the process, they updated ingredients, quantities and methods to suit contemporary tastes and customs, at the same time preserving the memory of ancient recipes for future generations. They furthermore included modern recipes from some of the most famous Italian chefs, resulting in a style of cooking that appeals to the gourmet chef and the amateur enthusiast alike.

A comprehensive and lively book, its uniquely stylish and user-friendly format makes it accessible and a pleasure to read. The new edition features new introductory material covering such topics as how to compose a traditional Italian meal, typical food traditions of the different regions, and how to set an Italian table. Its over 2,000 recipes are illustrated with newly commissioned photographs and contains a new section of menus by celebrated chefs cooking traditional Italian food.

  • Great classic

    Such a good kitchen staple. Since buying I’ve cooked over 20 recipes and learned a lot about traditional cooking. I do often add extra herbs and spices or google variations, but this is a great way to learn the basics of Italian cooking.
