It’s common knowledge that the fashion industry is all over what’s new, hot, delicious, and buzzy when it comes to the world’s restaurants. It’s why New York City’s Indochine has stayed on the map for over 30 years; fashion folk flock to it. So why not take advantage of the industry’s discerning tastes? In a new book published by Assouline, online retail site Farfetch has curated restaurants the world over, with favorites and recommendations from the likes of Leandra Medine (the Man Repeller), Anya Ziourova, designer Jonathan Saunders, and plenty more.
Model Elettra Wiedemann (and daughter of Isabella Rossellini) plays a part in the book, too, with a recipe for her favorite breakfast.
Here’s how to make Elettra’s omelette.
3 free-range eggs (I get mine from the Union Square Greenmarket every Monday)
1 knob of butter or 1 tsp coconut oil (available at most health food stores)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Elettra’s Healthy Omelette fillings (optional): sauteed leek and rosemary/kale and cayenne pepper/mushroom and arthichoke
Crack the eggs into a bowl; beat with a fork until smooth and then season. Melt a knob of butter or heat 1 tsp of coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan. Saute the fillings, and pour the eggs into the pan when the butter or oil is piping hot. Using a wooden fork in a circular motion, move the eggs in the pan around whilst moving the pan back and forth across the heat. Allow the eggs to form a light skin, and then remove the pan from the heat. Using the side of a fork, fold the omelette in towards the middle on both sides. Tip the omelette onto a plate, and serve.
