This week, Gilly's talking about The Year of Miracles by Ella Risbridger. Like her first book, Midnight Chicken and other recipes worth living for, it’s part memoir, part recipe book and reads like a novel. And despite not meaning to be a book about grief, it’s soaked in it. In a good way. Ella describes grief 'like an anvil crashing through the floor revealing a whole new level where you can live', and where she lives is a really interesting place which questions a whole way of being. A fascinating insight into writing, grief and queerness from a writer the critics have called 'the new Nigella'.To get 10% off the Essentials online course that I’m doing over over the next 6 months, go to leithsonline.com/courses/essential-cooking Click ‘enrol’ on course page and apply the code: GILLY10 at checkout: And if you fancy a Free Hollandaise mini-course – Sign up for a Workshop account or login at: app.workshop.ws/profile and click ‘Redeem Coupon’ on the sidebar and enter code GILLYSGIFT Hosted on Acast.

My guest today is Ella RisbridgerAuthor, writer and cook , in her own words: sometimes a journalist and other things tooDescribed 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 timeIt’s about living in london, in your twenties, with an anxiety disorder and being in love and recipesThe 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."---Thank you to our season sponsor Cooks Matches for their support and for helping me to bring the podcast to you each week See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
