Event description

Description

Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we reveal the life-changing happiness of cooking, the wisdom of taking care of ourselves and some recipes to make you fall in love with the world again.

We're thrilled to have acclaimed writer and poet Ella Risbridger with us to share her thoughts on the power of cooking to soothe and Midnight Chicken, her manifesto of recipes worth living for.

There was a time when, for Ella, 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. Her story is a joyful celebration of food and how it has the power to save your life.

Midnight Chicken is more than a cookbook. It's Eat Pray Love meets Nigella’s How to Eat and we're absolutely delighted to have Ella talking live on the Bloomsbury Institute stage to columnist Eva Wiseman about the kind of cooking you can do a little bit drunk that is probably better if you’ve got a bottle of wine open and a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce.

'A moving testimonial to the redemptive power of cooking. Risbridger knows that it offers not just solace but a map; cooking can save you. Generous, honest and uplifting. I wish I'd had this book when I was in my twenties' - Diana Henry
