Jorge Fernandez : Rustic: Simple food and drink, from morning to night


Rustic is a celebration of honest food and bringing people together, as the duo behind the Fernandez & Wells cafés share the recipes that define their philosophy that the best things in life are simple.

These recipes are made for sharing with friends and family with a cup of artisan coffee or a glass of fine wine in hand. Delicious food doesn't have to take hours to be a success try the Moroccan cooked tomato salad Taktouka, or caramelized onion tortilla for a simple supper with friends that is sure to satisfy. The humble sandwich is transformed into a hearty meal using quality ingredients such as grilled chorizo, peppers and rocket on sourdough. The baking recipes are inspiring and moreish the roast apple olive oil cake with butter and burnt sugar glaze will undoubtedly become a favourite!

Rustic and wholesome, these recipes are the perfect antidote to our fast-paced lives. With stunning photographs of London's Soho throughout, Rustic exudes the essence of an exciting food scene.
