Deliciously do-able recipes and stories that will inspire you to open your door and invite friends and family in to eat.
We all want to connect more with friends and family but many of us have lost the confidence to have people over. We want to create magic moments around a table but various things are stopping us; maybe we feel like our house isn't nice or tidy enough or our cooking isn't 'instagrammable' enough or we just don't have time or any clue what to cook and how to put a menu together.
In Good Company takes the angst out of cooking for friends, showing us how we can make things right, better, best, through good food served with minimum stress and maximum love. Sophie Hansen's A Basket by the Door was all about food you can make, wrap and deliver. With its generous collection of menus and food stories, In Good Company encourages you to open your door and invite people in to eat.
Born and raised in Sydney, now living with her family on their deer farm in New South Wales, Sophie Hansen trained in journalism at the University of Canberra and has more than 20 years’ experience as a features writer.
