Hello, my name is Rebecca May Johnson, I am a writer and cook and this is my newsletter. Each week I will send out a short piece of writing, a diary entry, recipes, and notes on what I’ve been eating at home and elsewhere. You might like my essay ‘I dream of canteens’, or ‘a partial list of Rome’, or ‘Against Roast Chicken: An Hors D’Oeuvres Theory of Cooking’.

My debut book Small Fires, An Epic in the Kitchen was published in August 2022 in the UK. If you are in the US, you can pre-order it here for June 2023!
