Touted as Italy's best selling cookbook for 50 years and the Bible of Italian cooking, The Silver Spoon ($32) is full of recipes just like mama use to make. Or, your friend's mama use to make. Or the restaurant down the street that you frequent once a week, their mama make use to make. Whatever. With over 2000 recipes, you've got your hands busy for a few years.
