My guest today is Ella Risbridger

Author, writer and cook , in her own words: sometimes a journalist and other things too

Described by The Times as "the most talented new cookbook writer of a generation", Her debut, Midnight Chicken (& Other Recipes Worth Living For), was published by Bloomsbury in January 2019 and won praise from Nigella Lawson, Nigel Slater and Diana Henry.

A cookbook which starts with Ella trying to take her own life. A cookbook about mental health, cookbook about anxiety, a cookbook about life being difficult and complicated and lots of fun and full of brilliant people and brilliant things and terrible things and all of this happening at the same time

It’s about living in london, in your twenties, with an anxiety disorder and being in love and recipes

The one and only Nigella has said: "One of the things that makes Midnight Chicken such a very good book is how hard it is to say exactly what it is. Yes, to be sure, it's a cookbook, but it is also a manual for living and a declaration of hope."
