Waterstones Says

Omelettes both literal and metaphorical are explored with love, wry wit and lashings of charm in this delicious combination of food writing and memoir from the popular singer-songwriter and podcaster.

Shortlisted for the Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards 2022

Signed Edition which includes an exclusive transcribed conversation between Jessie and some friends, discussing friendship and food

A Standard Edition is available here

'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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'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

'Joie de vivre is the bass note throughout the pages of Omelette.' - Harper's Bazaar

'A delicious fusion of memoir and ode to food.' - Grazia

'A charming and funny memoir... you want to eat everything she describes.' - Daily Mail

'A great one for foodies who live for nostalgia.' - GQ

'A charming and funny memoir' - Irish Daily Mail

“Fun exploration of food and culture”

An entertaining foodoir that is a celebration of friendship, family and Jewish culture, as it is about food. Lots of food and memory associations, growing up in South London in the 90's, lots of personal stories,... More

“Lovely!”

Really loved this book!

It was a bit of a surprise, as I wasn't sure a 'foodoir' would appeal to me, but I love Jessie's podcast and everything she does, so I needn't have doubted it.... More
