This week A Taste of the Past recreates a classic master cookbook of the Italian vintage "The Silver Spoon" with the help of the editor Emilia Terragni of Phaidon Press. Emilia expounds on the challenges that face a culinary historian in translating a 60 year old cookbook from Italian into English; from recipes where much was assumed and thus lacking direction, to differences in stoves, measurements and more.
