January's book of the month
MIDNIGHT CHICKEN (& other recipes worth living for) by Ella Risbridger
There are lots of ways to start a story, but this one begins with a chicken. Because one night, Ella 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 the story of Ella’s life in a Tiny Flat, and the food she cooked there. From roast garlic and tomato soup to charred leek lasagne or burnt butter brownies, she shares recipes that are about people, about love, about the things that matter every day. This is a cookbook-of-stories to make you fall in love with the world again.
There are no reading questions this month as this is a somewhat different book from our usual offerings. Instead, we would love for you to take some time to enjoy being in the kitchen, creating delicious food and savouring it with the utmost pleasure. After all, don't we all crave a bit of home comfort during the January gloom?
