Incredible encyclopedia of traditional Italian cooking.
Perhaps new to American audiences, The Silver Spoon (Il Cucchiaio d'Argento) has been a classic in Italian kitchens since 1950. This super-dense tome packs literally thousands of recipes in, though they were typically Italian in their lack of depth and detail. Perfect for the intuitive chef.
This is the new english translation of Italy's best selling cookbook for something like 50 years. If you love italian food, this is a treasure.
