If you’re craving Ricotta and Spinach Gnocchi or Tuscan Minestrone, then you’re going to want The Silver Spoon cookbook on your bookshelf for easy access. This cookbook has been a bestseller since 1950 and is considered the “Bible of authentic Italian home cooking.” The latest edition has over 2,000 recipes plus 400 full-color photographs, which is a helpful feature for beginner cooks. Not only does it follow a user-friendly format, but it also includes information on Italian traditions. The eleven color-coded chapters include Sauces, Marinades and Flavored Butters, Antipasti, Appetizers and Pizzas, First Courses, Eggs, Vegetables, Fish and Shellfish, Meat, Poultry, Game, Cheese, and Desserts.

“These recipes, by the thousands, are no-fuss, each succinct and clear as a fine Pinot Grigio,” says one Amazon reviewer. “If you know how to boil water and turn the range knobs, you’re in.” Just note that some versions of this cookbook feature metric units, so be careful when purchasing yourself a copy.
