Nothing says 'I love you, I've got you and I'm here' better than a parcel of food you've taken the time to make, wrap and deliver. So, season by season, here are 130 recipes to cook for loved ones who might be moving house, busy with a newborn, celebrating a milestone, recovering after illness, grieving, or just in need of a little love and appreciation. A Basket by the Door is friendship, connection and heartfelt country hospitality made edible. There are recipes here for sharing and giving on every occasion: an easy bundle of fresh dips and lavosh biscuits to take along to drinks, portable breakfast to surprise a friend, a sturdy picnic cake and sandwiches in a basket for lunch (even in the office), comforting ragu and chocolate mousse to enjoy while wallowing on the sofa, and ideas to take when invited for dinner or a weekend away. Bake a chicken pie to cheer up a neighbour, invite friends over to make Christmas biscuits; fill jam jars with bright smoothies to bolster a new mother - the ways to connect and show you care with food are endless.

MEDIA REVIEWS


'This collection of achievable recipes will inspire home cooks to try something a bit different. The photography is wonderfully evocative of the seasons and of happy family times' Stephanie Alexander

What a joy to see your new book! I can see it will inspire so many people to make someone else happy through food. It is so heartfelt and lush with seasonal ingredients and comforting recipes, the cookbook equivalent of a friend's open arms - Emiko Davies, author of Acquacotta, Florentine, Tortellini at Midnight

The gift of food is one of the most thoughtful and heart warming presents you can give. In this world where 'busy' is such a buzzword, giving someone your time and energy, making that simple care package, is the best love you can show. What a fabulous idea for a book! With such easy Recipes to make, Sophie inspires us once again to show those around us how much we love them - Luisa Brimble, author of Wild Adventure Cookbook with @missarahglover

"This is JOY INCARNATE. This book is absolutely delightful. I wish it had appeared in a basket on my doorstep when I first moved to the country". Annabelle Hickson,


'In her special collection, Sophie weaves people, ingredients, community & occasions together in such a natural & generous way' - Tessa Kiros, Murdoch author of Apples for Jam, Falling Cloudberries, Venetian Journal, Venezia, Limoncello and Linen Water

Sophie Hansen invites us into a special place where food nourishes, comforts and brings joy. Beautifully photographed and full of practical and seasonal recipes, this is a cookbook to treasure.
