ECBC Book Club – Midnight Chicken by Ella Risbridger

A cookbook might seem an odd choice for a book review on a mental-focused platform. However, Ella Risbridger’s Midnight Chicken is no ordinary cookbook. There are recipes, sure, but it is more than that. In the author’s own words: “what it really is is an annotated list of things worth living for: a manifesto of moments worth… Continue reading ECBC Book Club – Midnight Chicken by Ella Risbridger
