Jessâ latest labour of love â a behind-the-scenes journal of life in her buzzing Herne Bay, Auckland, deli, with everything from Middle Eastern mezze to turmeric fish tacos, plus plenty of crowd favourites in-between. She even shares the recipe for her much-coveted oaty ginger slice, which many customers deem âthe best theyâve ever had.â
The recipes are mouthwatering, accessible and donât require a plethora of obscure ingredients. But they also challenge the budding domestic goddess to think slightly outside the square â pairing goatsâ cheese with honey, for instance? Roasted grapes in a salad? Or popcorn coated in salted caramel with fresh thyme. Yum!
