About James Ramsden

James Ramsden is the founder of The Secret Larder, one of the most popular supper clubs in London and described by one journalist as “harder to get into than the Ivy.” He’s also the author of nearly half a dozen cookbooks, including his most recent title, Love Your Lunchbox. Born in Ripon, North Yorkshire, Ramsden spent his formative years eating everything from toadstools and strange berries to raw cake mix and fish sticks. He now lives in North London with his wife Rosie. @jamesramsden_

We wish we always had a stash of this chicken soup recipe in the fridge to turn to as a soothing respite in the middle of the work day.

“A seriously lovely grown-up drink.” “Not my father’s whiskey sour!” That’s what folks are saying about this party-friendly punch.
