Enter our US/CA/UK/AU giveaway to win one of two copies of The Silver Spoon: Recipes for Babies by The Silver Spoon Kitchen. Please remember Eat Your Book members receive 30% off Phaidon titles when using the link provided.

From their very first morsels, Italian infants are encouraged to explore the tastes and textures of real food – the goal is to help them develop a love of fresh ingredients and healthy eating. The Silver Spoon: Recipes for Babies is the perfect introduction to this national tradition, covering the period of a child’s development from six months to two years, with recipes designed to introduce a child to a wide range of foods along with advice for stress-free weaning.

The title’s 50 authentic Italian recipes, from nutritious purees to a child’s first carbonara, couscous, and pizza, have been double-tested in a home kitchen and are accompanied by expert tips, making this the perfect manual for all parents. The lovely illustrations throughout can help your toddler pick recipes they would enjoy and may encourage them when they are a bit older to tackle those recipes in the kitchen with mom or dad.
