Brutto – a (simple) florentine cookbook

"Brutto is actually bellissimo. A perfect cookbook for lovers of true Tuscan food. Simply brilliant." Stanley Tucci, actor & writer

Brutto ma buono - ugly but good. This is the food of Florence - rigorously simple, few ingredients, exceptionally good. 

The food of Florence rests on humble ingredients - not many - brought together in the rough-and-ready style of everyday cooking with flavour at its heart. This stunning brand-new cookbook offers outstanding recipes from Russell Norman's acclaimed restaurant, Trattoria Brutto, alongside an ode to one of Italy's most beloved cities, Florence, and specifically the bohemian district of Santo Spirito. Including Russell's captivating stories and insider advice, Brutto is a proudly fuss-free recipe book to use every day, wherever you are, and an joyous tribute to Italy's greatest rustic cuisine.

Anchovy with cold butter, and sourdough penne with tomato and vodka sausages with braised lentils, mustard-roasted squash with borlotti bean, salsa verde country-style bread, tomato salad, 3-ingredient meringue hazelnut cookies... Should the list end or are you hungry already? This follow-up to the praised cookbook Polpo is a joy for all senses.
