‘Mum. Guess what?’
‘We’ve written a cookbook’.
‘I know darling? Do you think anyone will want to buy it?’
‘Well, it’s the recipes we’ve made our guests – the really good ones.’
‘Like the Sausage and Bean Casserole we made Ed Sheeran, the Drunken Crouton and Kale Salad we made Yotam Ottolenghi and the two Blackberry and Custard Tarts we served Nigella.’
‘You ate a whole one before she arrived, darling.’
It’s a bloody good recipe mum.’
Cooking through Table Manners is like having Jessie and Lennie at the table with you: brash, funny and full of opinions. In true Ware style, their cookbook is divided into Effortless, A Bit More Effort, Summertime, Desserts and Baking (thanks to Jessie’s brother Alex), Chrismukkah (Christmas, Hanukkah and celebrations) and, of course, Jewish Food. These delicious, easy dishes are designed for real people with busy and sometimes chaotic lives with the ultimate goal of everyone eating together so fun can be had and unfiltered chat can flourish.
