Midnight Chicken & Other Recipes Worth Living For

Midnight Chicken & Other Recipes Worth Living For

Author: Ella Risbridger Illustrator: Elisa Cunningham Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 31/12/2020

'A manual for living and a declaration of hope' - Nigella Lawson There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken. Because one night, Ella found herself lying on her kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up - and it was the thought of a chicken, of roasting it, and of eating it, that got her to her feet and made her want to be alive. Midnight Chicken is the story of Ella's life in a Tiny Flat, and the food she cooked there. From roast garlic and tomato soup to charred leek lasagne or burnt butter brownies, she shares recipes that are about people, about love, about the things that matter every day. This is a cookbook-of-stories to make you fall in love with the world again. With a new afterword about life after The Tiny Flat.

Set Me On Fire A Poem For Every Feeling

Author: Ella Risbridger Format: Hardback Release Date: 03/10/2019

'Broad in scope, generous in spirit and wittily accompanied by Risbridger's commentary' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent Set Me On Fire is an anthology for a new moment in poetry: a collection of fresh, vibrant voices from poets all over the globe, both living and dead. With an intuitive, accessible, feelings-first format, these are poems for the moments when you really need to know that someone else has been there too. These are poems about eating and kissing and having too many feelings, about being outside and inside and loving someone so much you think you might die. They are about break-ups and getting back together and oh-god-it's-complicated-don't-ask-me moments. They are about wanting and waiting and having, about grieving and life after death and the end of the world. They are, in other words, about being alive.

Winner of the Guild of Food Writers General Cookbook Award 2020 'A manual for living and a declaration of hope' Nigella Lawson 'A moving testimonial to the redemptive power of cooking. Generous, honest and uplifting' Diana Henry There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken... One night, Ella Risbridger found herself lying on the kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up from it. And it was the thought of a chicken - of roasting it, and of eating it - that got her to her feet and made her want to be alive. Midnight Chicken is a cookbook. Or, at least, you'll flick through these pages and find comforting recipes like roast garlic and tomato soup, uplifting chilli-lemon spaghetti, charred leek lasagne, squash skillet pie, spicy fish finger sandwiches and burnt-butter brownies. This is the kind of happy cooking you can do a little bit drunk, and which is probably better if you've got a bottle of wine open and a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce. But if you settle down and read the book with a cup of tea (or a glass of that wine), you'll also discover that it's also all about little things worth living for - a manifesto of moments worth living for. This is a cookbook to make you fall in love with the world again. 'Risbridger is the most talented British debut writer in a generation' Sunday Times
