Recipes from an Italian Summer
Simply prepared without pretension, Italian dishes are designed to make the most of fresh ingredients and to let their natural flavors shine. With its abundance of produce, summer is the ideal season to try the delicious and authentic Italian way of cooking. Recipes from an Italian Kitchen captures the essence of the Italian summer with more than 400 never-before-published recipes newly collected from the venerable archives of the classic Italian cooking bible The Silver Spoon.
Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors’ Notes:
The Phaidon Press editors culled these warm weather recipes from The Silver Spoon, the English-language edition of Italy’s bestselling culinary Il Cucchiaio d’argento, first published in 1950. Flipping through the beautiful photos, the listing of Italian food festivals, the calendar of seasonal ingredients, and the descriptions of vacation regions almost made us think we’d been transported to Italy for a summer respite.
