The Silver Spoon is known throughout the world as the authoritative voice on Italian cuisine and the leading Italian culinary resource. The Italian Bakery: Step by Step Recipes With the Silver Spoon is the first volume in the Silver Spoon library to focus on dolci—the Italian term for all sweet treats.
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. The Silver Spoon is a definitive cookbook and kitchen reference that contains about 2,000 recipes from all over Italy, originally published by the design and architecture magazine Domus. A global bestseller, this book, together with its many offshoots, has taught generations of home cooks around the world how to cook like an Italian and enrich their lives with fresh ingredients and delicious recipes.
In this book, dishes found in bakeries and home kitchens throughout Italy's diverse regions come to life in 140 accessible classic and contemporary patisserie recipes, including a library of 50 core recipes for basic baking building blocks like perfect pie crust. Each is illustrated with step-by-step photography geared toward novices and experienced bakers alike.
Filled with cakes, pastries, pies, cookies, sweets and chocolates, and frozen puddings, this collection showcases a wide range of delectable desserts suitable for everyday indulgences and special-occasion celebrations the Italian way. Recipes like Fig-filled Spelt Cookie Bars, Chocolate Cake With Cherries in Barolo Chinato, and Strawberry Mousse on Pistachio Sponge prove that there’s much more to Italian sweets than cannoli and tiramisu. It will prove an invaluable resource for anyone looking to add a little more dolce (or dolci!) vita to their life.
This hardcover book contains 140 recipes and is illustrated throughout with full-color, step-by-step photographs that will help even a first-time baker achieve picture-perfect results.
