First published in 1950, The Silver Spoon (Il cucchiaio d'agento) is, almost beyond argument, the most important Italian cookbook of all time. To create this historic collection, its editors commissioned dozens of cooking experts to gather hundreds of traditional Italian home cooking recipes. This new edition, specially retooled for American home cooks, contains over 2,000 revised recipes; 400 new, previously unpublished photographs; and a new selection of menus by chefs including Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, Tony Mantuano, Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Tony Mantuano. A home cooking classic. Editor's recommendation.

Il Cucchiaio d’Argento was originally published in Italy in 1950 by the famous Italian design and architectural magazine Domus, and became an instant classic. A select group of cooking experts were commissioned to collect hundreds of traditional Italian home cooking 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.
Divided into eleven color‐coded chapters by course, The Silver Spoon is a feat of design as well as content. Chapters include: Sauces, Marinades and Flavored Butters, Antipasti, Appetizers and Pizzas, First Courses, Eggs, Vegetles, Fish and Shellfish, Meat, Poultry, Game, Cheese, and Desserts. It covers everything from coveted authentic sauces and marinades to irresistible dishes such as Penne Rigate with Artichokes, Ricotta and Spinach Gnocchi, Tuscan Minestrone, Meatballs in Brandy, Bresaola with Corn Salad, Pizza Napoletana, Fried Mozzarella Sandwiches and Carpaccio Cipriani.
"A seriously comprehensive guide that shows that Italian food is about for more than just pasta and pizza. . . One for serious Italophiles." – Gordon Ramsey, The Times
"A joy to cook from. . . May well prove to be the only Italian cookery you’ll ever need." – Henrietta Green, Daily Mail
"I predict this is going to become the new bible on Italian food." – The Bookseller
"Big and bountiful, it’s a welcoming jumble of recipes. . . and by the looks of it, it may give cookbooks by American celebrity chefs a run for their money." – The New York Times Magazine
"The most exhaustive Italian cookbook in recent memory, this volume offers something for every cook, regardless of their skill level, and deserves to be a fixture in American kitchens." – Publishers Weekly
"It’s not so much one more Italian cookbook as the one‐volume encyclopedia of Italian home cookery. Lavish illustrations, a helpful glossary of cooking terms and a translation geared to the intelligent layout make The Silver Spoon both pleasant browsing and an accessible manual in the kitchen." – The Wall Street Journal
"We love The Silver Spoon cookbook from the 1950s – a staple in many Italian food lovers’ kitchen." – FamilyCirlcle
