Review

POLPO does what a great cookbook should do: it makes you urgently want to cook and breaks new territory (Daily Telegraph)

Wonderful ... the dishes are simple, with relatively few ingredients, but they're inspired. The grilled courgettes with toasted breadcrumbs, for instance, was sublime. The pages of my book are already smeared with olive oil and egg; a good sign (Melanie McDonagh
Evening Standard)

A marvellously useful guide to anyone who actually wants to cook (Cary Gee
Tribune)

A present for the greedy gourmets in your life (
Observer)

Delicious (
Mail on Sunday)

Gorgeous (
Daily Mail)

Like a trip round the bars and bacari of Venice (
Independent)

A delight for its goodies from Venice and beyond, beautifully presented in a book that (hallelujah) lies flat on the kitchen surface (Lisa Markwell
Independent)

Definitely the design classic of 2012 (
Irish Times)

Russell Norman is an author, restaurateur and broadcaster. He is the founder of the award-winning Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant BRUTTO in London and co-founder of the POLPO group of restaurants and SPUNTINO restaurant and bar.

His first book "POLPO: A Venetian Cookbook (of Sorts)" won the inaugural Waterstones Book of the Year prize in 2012. His second book "SPUNTINO: Comfort Food, New York Style" was published in September 2015 and won the Guild of Food Writers Award in the Food and Travel category.

In 2014 he presented The Restaurant Man, a six-part prime-time documentary for BBC2. He is a contributing editor at Esquire Magazine where he writes a monthly column as The Accidental Cook.

His most recent book, "VENICE: Four Seasons of Home Cooking" saw him return to the city of his original inspiration to immerse himself in the food culture of genuine Venetian residents. Russell spent 14 months in a humble flat in the Castello district, shopping, cooking and writing through four seasons. He said of the experience: "I exiled myself in the world's most beautiful city for over a year in order to learn to cook like a 90 year-old Venetian granny."
