Words on a Plate: Sophie Hansen Cookbook News

Sophie Hansen Announces Cookbook Project

Sophie Hansen Announces Cookbook Project

Here is the next instalment from our F.O.O.D Week event Words on a Plate with guest Sophie Hansen. Writer, blogger, farmer and all round stylish lady Sophie spoke about her background in magazine writing and her stint in Italy working with Slow Food. She described the international atmosphere of the office as “crazy” with so many different nationalities represented in the one place. From there she talked about meeting her husband Tim and the transition from “city girl” to “country girl”. She revealed the vision for her blog Local is Lovely, as well as a highlight in her career the National Year of Reading Writing in Residency (check it out at onefarmday.blogspot.com.au) and then her latest project having just signed a book contract. (Applause, fanfare, red carpet!) And here’s how she announced it on her blog: “A couple of months ago I received a lovely email from publishers Hachette Australia, wondering if I might be interested in writing a book based on Local is Lovely. The answer of course was a big fat yes. So after many discussions about how it might look/feel/come together, I’ve just driven back from Sydney with a contract and a (terrifying) deadline. And am beyond excited. Local is Lovely ‘the book’ will be a seasonal collection of stories and recipes, including some favourites from the blog and lots of new content too. It’s due for release in April 2014 (holy moly!).” Congratulations Sophie and we can’t wait to have Local is Lovely on our Library shelves!
