Polpo - A Venetian Cookbook
Width: 20 cm
Length: 28 cm
Polpo is a Venetian cookbook that includes 140 recipes accompanied by photographs by Jenny Zarins. It chronicles Russell Norman's inspiration for the restaurants and his culinary journey to Venice's back-street wine bars and bacaris in search of the authentic flavors of the city and region.
All recipes have been adapted and made possible for the home cook to recreate at home. They range in complexity, so there is something for all cooks. There are dishes that long-time Ottolenghi fans will be familiar with like a starter of aubergine with black garlic, or the roasted squash with sweet tomatoes, as well as some of the restaurant’s signature dishes at home, such as Beef brisket croquettes or Persian love rice. With chapters for starters & sides, fish, meat & vegetable mains, puddings, brunch, condiments, and cocktails, a menu can easily be devised for any occasion and purpose.
