Ella Risbridger - You're Booked

This week we are nosing around the bookshelves of the author described as "the most talented new cookbook writer of a generation" by The Times, the wonderful Ella Risbridger! Ella is the author of Midnight Chicken, called "a manual for living and a declaration of hope" by Nigella Lawson. Ella is also the editor of the poetry anthology Set Me On Fire and her first book for children The Secret Detectives will be released later this year. We talked to her about nourishing poetry, smoking in the bath and why she still has Daisy's copy of Brother of the More Famous Jack.
