Note: Recipes that reveal the life-changing happiness of cooking There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken. There was a time when, for Ella Risbridger, the world had become overwhelming. Sounds were too loud, colours were too bright, everyone moved too fast. One night she 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 a cookbook. Or, at least, you'll flick through these pages and find recipes so inviting that you will head straight for the kitchen: 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 a cookbook, but also a memoir, beautifully illustrated, and containing the kind of recipes that it’s perfectly easy to follow. Risbridger shares memories, tough times and her recipes become stories.

Hardback:Set me on fire, a poem for every feeling:2019 Hardback
Compiler: Risbridger, Ella
Year: 2019
Language: English
Interest category: Literature & languages
Media class: Hardback
Content type: Poetry
Publisher: Doubleday
Resource type: Physical
Note: '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. General adult
