Ella Risbridge’s marinaded poultry upper legs are – purely talking – a mess, yet a yummy one. A recipe for every person that is not terrified to obtain their fingers filthy.

“The heart desires what the heart desires, and sometimes my heart desires this: sticky, trashy, salty-sweet chicken thighs that you eat with your hands and that smear everything they touch with their wonderful, unpretentious sauce”. With these words Ella Risbridger presents the dish, which she calls “Trashy Ginger Beer Chicken Legs”. It originates from her recipe book “The story begins with a chicken: Recipes worth living for”. It is, so she composes, “a real dirty meal”.

Risbridger is not a skilled chef, she is self-taught. One that gauges components with red wine glasses that Food purchases without understanding what she is getting. Or as she explains it: “I am a cook, I think, but a sloppy one, from the bottom of the vegetable drawer.” She sees her dish collection as “a kind of guide to falling in love with the world anew”.

In this instance, it is the poultry legs that, she assures, taste like they originate from someplace that is filthy and also tasty and also passionate.
