Brutto: A (Simple) Florentine Cookbook
By Russell Norman, who sadly died recently and was a huge hero of ours at Brassica.
Brutto ma buono - ugly but good. This is the food of Florence - rigorously simple, few ingredients, exceptionally good.
Anchovy with cold butter and sourdough
Penne with tomato and vodka
Sausages with braised lentils and mustard
Roasted squash with borlotti bean and salsa verde
Country-style bread and tomato salad
3-ingredient meringue hazelnut cookies
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 new 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.
