In Good Company Summary

In Good Company: Simple, generous recipes and ideas for get-togethers and good times by Sophie Hansen

'... generous, bright and warm, exactly the type of food I want to cook again and again.' Hetty McKinnon

'Sophie 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.'
Julia Busuttil Nishimura, author of Ostro and A Year of Simple Family Food

'Sophie draws us generously into her world - a beautiful, authentic lifestyle. She has me wanting Gran's almond cake with honey cream, warm figs & blue cheese with elderflower & prosecco jellies - and to be sprawled on a river bank with family, friends & wild flowers.' Tessa Kiros

Ask anyone to tell you about the most memorable meal of their life and they won't give you a chronological playback of what they ate; they'll tell you about how that meal made them feel. Whether it's a last-minute dinner with neighbours, a family feast or a casual summer picnic, Sophie Hansen has done the thinking for you and designed menus featuring 120 recipes that are simple, tasty and perfect for sharing. She also includes ideas for creating a memorable atmosphere for any gathering, large or small, plus advice on how to embrace shortcuts to take the pressure off, so you can focus on enjoying the good times rather than stressing in the kitchen.

In Good Company is filled with all the recipes and inspiration you need to encourage you to throw open your doors and invite people in, because there's never been a better time to bring people together.
