One night, Ella Risbridger found herself lying on her kitchen floor, wondering if she would ever get up. 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.
Now, Ella is celebrating the paperback publication of her bestselling and award-winning book Midnight Chicken (& Other Recipes Worth Living For), a heartfelt collection of recipes and reflections on moments worth living.
Join Ella in conversation as she touches on the story of life in a Tiny Flat (and what happened next) and why cooking for people you love is like giving them a birthday present every day. From roast garlic and tomato soup to charred leek lasagne or burnt-butter brownies, Ella will share stories and her favourite recipes that are about people, about love and about the things that matter every day. She’ll also explore what it felt like when her Paris Cookies recipe went viral at the start of lockdown, after hundreds of people contacted her to say they had been making them.
This is an honest, funny and uplifting evening with a rising star in food writing that will make you fall in love with the world again.
‘Full of love and hope, Midnight Chicken is an utter treat, both to read and to cook from’
- Dolly Alderton
‘One of the things that makes Midnight Chicken such a very good book is how hard it is to say exactly what it is. It’s a cookbook, but it is also a manual for living and a declaration of hope’
- Nigella Lawson
