Eat It: A Memoir With A Blood Mountain
Hospitality veteran Jess Ho talks about starting their career at one of “the big four” fast food joints, before they moved into the world of gastro pubs and high-end dining, and eventually owning their own bar. Jess tells presenter Cam Smith how food was the only thing they enjoyed during a traumatic childhood, and how their advice to anyone who wants to start a restaurant is to host a dinner party instead, because “it’s cheaper and nicer”. Jess’ adventures in hospitality, including the infamous night of “blood mountain”, can be found in their new book Raised By Wolves: a Memoir With Bite - out now via Affirm Press.
