Eating With My Fingers isn't pretentious or complicated, or a book that claims to have all the answers. It is How To Eat's plumper and more down-to-earth little sister. Ella Risbridger started cooking because she needed some point of stability in a world that was slipping away from her. As someone with an anxiety disorder, she started writing about cooking because she thought other people might benefit from knowing that they aren't alone in how they feel, aiming to make their lives just a little better and brighter.
Ella brings her simple and delicious recipes to life with honest anecdotes and thoughtful reflections. Recipes include rebound lasagne, this too shall pass pie, homecoming risotto, and midnight chicken. These are recipes that belong to everyone: easy, careful and adaptable.
Ella Risbridger is a writer who cooks as a form of meditation to work through her anxiety disorder. She writes for the Toast, the Independent, Best For Film, Work In Prowess, IdeasTap and has a column on the NUS website.
