The Year of Miracles by Ella Risbridger is more than just a cookbook; like her Midnight Chicken, every page is a transporting blend of recipes and life story.
This book is about a year in the kitchen (and in the garden under the fire-escape steps). A year of grief and hope and change; of fancy fish pie, cardamom-cinnamon chicken rice, chimichurri courgettes, quadruple carb soup, blackberry miso birthday cake and sticky toffee Guinness brownie pudding. A year of loss and fried jam sandwiches. A year of seedlings and pancakes. A year of falling in love. A year of recipes. A year, in other words, of minor miracles.
