Winner of the Guild of Food Writers General Cookbook Award 2020‘A manual for living and a declaration of hope’ – Nigella Lawson‘Beautiful, life-affirming memoir with recipes … The most talented British debut writer in a generation’ – Sunday Times’Brave and moving … as effective as a manual for life as it is as a kitchen companion’ – Shamil Thakrar, co-founder of DishoomThere 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 burnt­butter 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.

With a new afterword about life after The Tiny Flat.
