‘Brutto’ is chef Russell Norman's fuss-free cookbook, featuring wholesome, easy to make recipes, full of flavour and made from the humble ingredients of Tuscany. Featuring recipes from his acclaimed restaurant, Trattoria Brutto, the book also acts as an ode to one of Italy's most beloved cities, Florence, and specifically the bohemian district of Santo Spirito. Roasted squash with borlotti beans and salsa verde, sausages with braised lentils and mustard and penne with tomato and vodka are just a sample of the delicious recipes included within ‘Brutto.

Russell Norman is an award-winning restaurateur, writer and broadcaster, and the founder of the POLPO restaurant group.  In 2014 he presented The Restaurant Man, a six-part prime-time documentary for BBC2, and his second book ‘Spuntino - Comfort Food’ (New York Style) won the 2016 Guild of Food Writers Award for best food and travel book. He opened his fully booked Trattoria Brutto in 2021 to universal acclaim and a long waiting list.
