Publishers Text

An international best-seller, The Silver Spoon has confirmed Italian cuisine to be one of the most popular cuisines in the world, and the best-loved Italian dish is pasta. Pasta comes in all shapes and textures, and can be simply cooked to create delicious dishes that appeal to both the novice cook and the gourmet. Now, for the first time, The Silver Spoon Book of Pasta presents a complete reference guide to all types of pasta with over 350 classic and modern recipes--70 previously published in The Silver Spoon and 250 new for this book.

The recipes are easy to follow and fully explained, and include the most popular pasta dishes from The Silver Spoon, along with many new recipes collected by the same team and published in English for the first time. They are simple to prepare in any kitchen and yet utterly authentic, enabling any aspiring cook to make them successfully, or helping more experienced cooks to expand their repertoire. In traditional Italian cooking, each pasta shape is accompanied by a specific range of sauces, and The Silver Spoon Book of Pasta provides an introduction to every type of pasta, a guide to the different shapes and the best sauces to accompany them, as well as tips for do's and don'ts. A comprehensive and lively book with specially commissioned photographs and illustrations, its simple and user-friendly format makes it both accessible and a pleasure to read.
