Thirty-something-year-old Sophie White’s life appears to be going in exactly the right direction: perfect husband, adorable baby, nice house, interesting job … domestic bliss. But we all know that life is never that smooth and, more importantly, that your dinner isn’t always kale and quinoa.
In this collection of recipes and rants, Sophie shares her life on a plate: from a brush with madness to falling in love; from almost running away from her wedding to getting unexpectedly pregnant (cue a gradual return to crazy); from surviving her mother and her son – her arch nemeses and her two favourite people in the world – to losing her father in his fifties to early onset Alzheimer’s disease.
And eating. Always eating.
Part cookbook, part memoir, part self-help manual, Recipes for a Nervous Breakdown is a hilarious and refreshingly honest take on the life of a modern millennial woman the perfect kitchen companion for laughing about the silly stuff, crying about the sad stuff, staring down our own personal madness and getting on with it (all while eating some delicious food along the way).
