The Vegetarian Silver Spoon
Hardcover, 384pp. by Cucchiaio d’Argento | Item Catalogue Number: 34169
The latest title to join Phaidon’s Silver Spoon library features more than 200 recipes for Italian vegetarian dishes, with a particular emphasis on healthy meat-free options for appetizers, main dishes, salads, sides, and desserts. Recipes range from classic dishes that are traditionally vegetarian to contemporary dishes that introduce ingredients borrowed from outside Italy’s culinary culture. The book is easy to navigate, thanks to its recipe icons, while gorgeous specially commissioned photographs bring its delicious dishes to life.
First published in 1950, Il Cucchiaio d’Argento, published in English by Phaidon as The Silver Spoon, is the ultimate compilation of traditional home-cooking Italian dishes. A global bestseller, this book, together with its many offshoots, has taught home cooks around the world how to cook like an Italian and enrich their lives with fresh ingredients and delicious recipes. This is the first vegetarian collection from The Silver Spoon.
“No one does a family gathering quite like the Italians, so take inspiration from their seasonal, veg-packed cuisine to create your own savoury showstopper – perfect for Easter or a Sunday lunch.” -Vegetarian Living
“In this book, the writing is clear, the photos inviting, and above all, the sheer breadth of tasty-sounding dishes encyclopedic enough that any level of cook can find something to make. For fans of Italian cuisine, it’s impossible to flip through the pages without salivating, vegetarian or not.” -Eater
“Fantastic book and delivery but the book came with folded pages. The container was intact. Disappointed as unable to get to the Post office to return it. The recipes are very different from normal classic italian cooking and are not all your usual store cupboard ingredients. Though if you want to push your boundaries in cooking vegetarian/vegan cooking then this is the book to try.” -Carmela
