Rowan Yapp at Vintage has signed Trullo by Tim Siadatan, taking world rights all languages from Felicity Blunt at Curtis Brown.
Named after the London restaurant, Trullo will offer Italian recipes from a British point of view. The book, to be published in hardback in July, will also feature a foreword from Fergus Henderson.
Siadatan said: "The book captures what I truly love about Italian food. The kind of food that makes you jump up in excitement when you smell it coming out of the oven, the kind of food that lingers in the memories of your children (and that you can use as a bargaining tool to stop them squabbling), the kind of food that you cook for someone on the third date and which makes them think you’re the real deal."
At 18, Siadatanbecame one of the first trainees selected by Jamie Oliver as part of his Fifteen scheme. After graduating, he went on to join Fergus Henderson at St John and later working under the direction of Sam and Sam Clark at Moro before opening Trullo in 2010 and was soon after credited as one of the “Top 10 Young Chefs in Europe” by the Wall Street Journal.
