The Silver Spoon for Children

Spaghetti Blog naise

I thought I’d start with a couple of images from what was my biggest project (and probably most time consuming ever!) from last year: ‘The Silver Spoon for children’.  Published by Phaidon press and aimed at children aged 10-14 it teaches kids to cook authentic Italian food. It’s also pretty good for adults and most of the dishes are really tasty. I tried quite a few of them during the photo shoots, which was a lovely perk of this job! I thought I would be sick of Italian food after months on end of drawing it, but I love it just as much as ever, and even attempted one of the recipes at the weekend for my parents (the lamb with a herb crust)!  Anyway, here’s the cover and a couple of the inside spreads.


  1. Wow! what a fantastic blog, lots of your wonderful illustrations from The Silverspoon for children book project and very well written with lots of chuckles, Thanks so much for sharing your work with us, can't wait to see what you post next!
