Polpo. A Venetian Cookbook {Of Sorts} & many familiar places

Venice fish market

Polpo: A Venetian Cookbook {Of Sorts}, a gorgeous new find at Omnivore Books, is more travel journal than cookbook and brings back fond memories of a winter trip to Venice two years ago - including many familiar places and vistas.
Loved browsing the book's gorgeous photo spreads capturing everyday life along the hidden backstreets of Venice while reviving travel memories with a list of favorite bàccari spots in the back of the book ...
Just wish I could hop across the pond for an aperitivo at Polpo or Spuntino
- Negroni Sbagliato, Americano or Aperol Spritz, anyone?
