The editor behind the legendary book on the tips she holds most dear.
The Silver Spoon, originally published in English by Phaidon in 2005, was the first cookbook Phaidon published and the first cookbook Emilia Terragni, the publisher of Phaidon’s cookbooks and architecture books, ever worked on. The tome has gone on to sell so many copies and be one of the most essential Italian cookbooks around. To celebrate its 10th anniversary of the English edition (and the publication of The Silver Spoon: Quick and Easy Italian Recipes), Emilia has picked out the lessons she finds indispensable from the very big, comprehensive Silver Spoon.
