i came across this cook book at one of my favorite little outdoor cafes in south pasadena. the cover definitely pulled me in and then i kept flipping the pages faster and faster, ooh-ing and aaah-ing at the relatively simple recipes. polpo is a venetian b├ácaro in soho that i was dying to try the last time i was in london. some of my most cherished cook books come from restaurants in london and this is no exception. the photography is gorgeous, the stories of venice intriguing, polpo pulls you in almost viscerally. 



  1. I've got this cookbook! And I've been to the restaurant and its delicious.

  2. As a graphic designer I totally judge a book by it's cover and this is one good looking cover!

  3. I finally made it there the other day, and drank too much red wine. It was delicious. So was the food.
