Coming to America: The Bible of Italian Cuisine

For those of us that can’t make it to Italy this season, traditional Italian home cooking will find its way into our English-speaking kitchens with the publication of an Italian cookbook staple, The Silver Spoon.

True, there is certainly no dearth of Italian cookbooks in circulation in America, but nowwe can get our oven-mitted hands on what Italians consider the Bible of cooking. The Italian language version, Il Cucchiaio d’Argento, has provided over 2,000 recipes to the finest Italian chefs and mothers for over half a century. The illustrated cookbook, which has sold over two million copies since its first edition in 1950, has never before been translated.

Considered byItalians as a perfect gift for newlyweds, The Silver Spoon divulges the ingredients for countless Italian dishes, including 80 different sauces and 220 dolci! These secrets on preparing the finest Italian piatti will be available foronline order from the publisher Phaidon beginning October 1, and will hit American bookshelves later in the month at the price of $39.95.

Italian speakers can get a preview on the official site, www.cucchiaio.it, where free registration brings you access to features such as the top 10 viewed recipes, (Penne Gialle –made with saffron - tops the list.)
