Sold Out

The Silver Spoon, the most influential and successful Italian cookbook of the last 50 years, is now available in a 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 also included modern recipes from famous Italian chefs, resulting in a style of cooking that appeals to the gourmet chef and the amateur enthusiast alike.
