Bake like an Italian with this latest Silver Spoon treasure – a culinary inspiration and go-to kitchen companion
The Silver Spoon is known throughout the world as the authoritative voice on Italian cuisine and the leading Italian culinary resource. The Italian Bakery is the first volume in the Silver Spoon library to focus on dolci – the Italian term for all sweet treats. Dishes found in bakeries throughout Italy’s diverse regions come to life in 140 accessible classic and contemporary patisserie recipes, including a library of 50 core recipes for basic baking building blocks, each illustrated with step-by-step photography, geared toward novices and experienced bakers alike. Filled with cakes, pastries, pies, cookies, sweets and chocolates, and frozen puddings, the collection showcases a wide range of delectable desserts suitable for everyday indulgences and special-occasion celebrations – the Italian way.
"Intended as a kitchen patisserie guide for experienced bakers, but equally suited to the curious novice, the book is filled with classic recipes as well as modern twists and some lesser known biscotti, tarts and pastries." - Fine Dining Lovers
