Summary

Tucked away in a backstreet of London's edgy Soho district, POLPO is one of the hottest  restaurants in town. Critics and food aficionados have been flocking to this understated bàcaro where Russell Norman serves up dishes from the back streets of Venice. A far cry from the tourist-trap eateries of the famous floating city, this kind of cooking is unfussy, innovative and exuberantly delicious. 
 
The 140 recipes in the book include caprese stacks, zucchini shoestring fries, asparagus with Parmesan and anchovy butter, butternut risotto, arancini, rabbit cacciatore, warm duck salad with wet walnuts and beets, crispy baby pizzas with prosciutto and rocket, scallops with lemon and peppermint, mackerel tartare, linguine with clams, whole sea bream, warm octopus salad, soft-shell crab in Parmesan batter with fennel salad, walnut and honey semifreddo, tiramisù, fizzy bellinis and glasses of bright orange spritz. 
 
With luminescent photography by Jenny Zarins, which captures the unfrequented corners, the bustling bàcari and the sublime waterways of Venice, POLPO is a dazzling tribute to Italy's greatest hidden cuisine.

Twenty-five surprising salads: White Corn Salad with Fresh Herb Vinaigrette, Papaya and Arugula Salad, Fresh Green Bean Salad with Crumbled Feta Vinaigrette, to name a few. Main dishes for a party, from Creole Chicken Spaghetti to White Bean and Spinach Lasagna. Desserts, and a full chapter of loaves and other gifts from the kitchen, including Deep Dish Cherry Cobbler and Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream Cake. Each recipe comes with “Tote Notes” (how best to transport the dish), “Big Batch” (how to multiply the dish), and “When You Arrive” (how to put the finishing touches on the dish). Plus, there are “Grab & Gos”—super-quick recipes—for each section, etiquette tips for working in someone else’s kitchen, and a “Notes” area for each recipe, to jot down tips and log in when you made the dish and for what occasion, so you don’t repeat yourself.
