Omelette

£12.99

A celebration of our three basic needs: food, security and love. Whether musing over society’s biggest challenges, the acceptability of eating in bedrooms, family bonding and etiquette, or whether Wagon Wheels are a dessert, Jessie Ware reveals a snapshot of her life, the world she’s lived in and the people she’s met, and what she actually thinks matters. Jessie invites you to join the conversation, indulge in some of her favourite recipes, or simply kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy stories that will nourish your heart and satisfy your soul.

Description

“Are you hungry darling, shall I make you an omelette?”

My mother’s omelettes are slightly overdone but always generous in cheese and well-seasoned. My omelettes are just the same, though more often slightly underdone and less carefully considered. And like my stories, they come in many forms. You might get one late at night, after a little too much wine and alongside a little too much information. I might spend a long time on one that’s just a touch extravagant. And many are for the people I care about most, thrown together and with more cheese than is strictly necessary.

Collected here are things I’ve done, things I’ve seen, things I’ve thought, and most importantly, things I’ve tasted. They’re slices of parts of my life. Call them omelettes, if you like. I hope you enjoy them.

‘Jessie’s life seems to have seamlessly brought her forth on a magic carpet of food, peppered by lots and lots of laughs. Her stories are a joy to read, although probably not as much fun as they are to live. Deliciously entertaining’. – Yotam Ottolenghi

‘Gobbled this up in 90 minutes. A dreamy food memoir which is stuffed full of warmth and feeling and fun. If you love Table Manners you’ll adore this book by Jessie Ware. Now I’m gagging for some hot buttered toast.’ – Bella Mackie

Love it, laughed cried in parts…. I so enjoyed reading about Jessie’s life through food …. Childbirth and Bolognese forever imprinted on my mind. – Angela Hartnett
