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.
The 140 recipes in the book include caprese stacks, zucchini shoestring fries, asparagus with Parmesan and anchovy butter, butternut risotto, arancini, rabbit cacciatore, crispy baby pizzas with prosciutto and rocket, scallops with lemon and peppermint, linguine with clams, warm octopus salad, soft-shell crab in Parmesan batter with fennel salad, fizzy bellinis and glasses of bright orange spritz.
With luminescent photography by Jenny Zarins, POLPO is a dazzling tribute to Italy’s greatest hidden cuisine.
