Sophie Hansen’s book, A Basket By The Door is seasonal, comforting, and full of joy!
She’s created this book for keen cooks who want to show love and appreciation to friends and loved ones who may have moved house, had a baby, are suffering from an illness, grieving, or celebrating a milestone. ‘Cooking for another – be it a full meal or a jar of biscuits – is the most thoughtful act of all,’ Sophie says.
Within these pages, you’ll find recipes like Cardamom and Rose Balls, Spiced Broad Bean and Pea Dip, The Chicken Pie, Jam Pastries, Cherry Frangipane Galette, Mum’s Pork and Pistachio Terrine and a delicious Apple, Fennel and Pork Sausage Roll. The list of delicious flavours rolls on through summer, autumn, winter and spring.
Sophie dropped into Kitchen HQ to cook up her rich and comforting Slow-cooked Spiced Lamb Shanks and her mouth-watering Blackberry and Apple Crumble with Vanilla Custard.
