We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, A Basket by the Door: Recipes for Comforting Gifts and Joyful Gatherings by Sophie Hansen, the voice behind the blog Local is Lovely. Sophie's events are shared on our calendar.


I knew I would enjoy the book before I even cracked open the cover from the title alone: recipes for comforting gifts and joyful gatherings. Perhaps it is the optimist buried deep inside me that longs for the time to create beautiful gifts and load them up into a welcoming bundle. A Basket by the Door contains the inspiration I need to take more care when gifting food and put aside those dull plastic containers. 

Recipes are shared for picnics, dinner parties and gifting as well as lovely tips for wrapping and sharing. Chutneys, scones, soups, jams and full dinner offerings fill the pages. The photography is stellar and plentiful with shots of the  dishes, the author and her family, and includes photographs of their gorgeous farm. Everything about this book is inviting and will please every level of cook.

Our    takes you inside this feel good book with recipes such as the following
