THE SILVER SPOON
It is a beast...I wondered how my husband could order a cooking book nearly four inches thick...nay, nay, the equivalent of The Joy of Cooking on steroids. It truly is a monster. But once I cracked open this manual, I began to understand why it is the quintessential cookbook for Italians. The Silver Spoon is prized as the cookbook one generation passes on to the next generation. For many reasons The Silver Spoon is the most successful cookbook in Italy, the book that has its place in every family kitchen, and the one that many brides have received as a wedding gift.
With our summer lake season nearly over, my husband suggested that we as a couple endeavor to cook weekly from The Silver Spoon. Check back later this week for Round 1: Beef Stew with Coffee.
