The Food Talks Series 4: Russell Norman - Monday 17th September
Russell Norman, award-winning restaurateur, writer and broadcaster, and the founder of the POLPO restaurant group, will join us on Monday 17th September at 7pm to talk about his new book Venice: Four Seasons of Home Cooking.
Russell has built a life and career out of his love for the north Italian city of Venice. In his latest book he returns to the city to immerse himself in the authentic flavours of the region and the culinary traditions of the city throughout the seasons.
Everything from summer picnics to warming winter soup is covered in easy Italian family recipes: from radicchio, pancetta and chickpea salad to duck rigatoni, and from Bellini sorbet to chocolate and hazelnut semifreddo. The book gives a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of the city, its hidden architectural gems, its secret places, its embedded history, the colour and bustle of daily life, and the food merchants and growers who make Venice so surprisingly vibrant.
Places are £28 and include a glass of wine and tasters cooked by us from the book. Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase on the night.
Your receipt is your ticket and your name will be on the guest list at the door. If you are buying as a gift please let us know the name of the guest at checkout.
