Sunday 17 March
Sophie is launching her new cookbook "What can I bring?" with us in March and its everything we lean into around food. The sharing, the gathering and the feeding of those you love and it's an easy and delicious guide to what to bring for and to any gathering.
It will be an abundant evening. Champagne on arrival, conversations with Phil Lavers from Moonacres Farm, Nicole Feggans Jamberoo Mountain Farm and Fiona Walmsley from Beuna Vista Farm. Sophie will share her new book, and all guests will receive a copy, and then we will join Sophie around the bench to create a few recipes to enjoy over a long dinner.
Bringing a plate is part of the Australian culture and many of us have grown up hearing these words. The easiest and best gatherings are when everyone pitches in. It's sanity-saving for the host, not to mention energy- and money-saving and arguably, more fun and interesting. But what do you make when asked to bring a plate?
Sophie offers seasonally delicious answers to that perennial question. Drawing inspiration from some of her favourite country cooks, friends, family and bring-a-plate traditions, she shares her best recipes when you need a salad of substance, a dinner for a camping trip, a soup for the thermos, a wintry pot-luck meal and a treat for the cake stall.
The common thread of all Sophie Hansen's recipes and gatherings is the community and kindness that binds us and these recipes and ideas will help glue together your own special gatherings.
She is the author and photographer of five cookbooks, co-host of the podcast Something to Eat and Something to Read and, she spent three years working with Slow Food Editore in Northern Italy in her twenties. For the past ten years Sophie has been sharing recipes on her blog Local is Lovely and runs workshops around country NSW and beyond.
She writes a weekly newsletter called ‘5 things to be cheerful about’ and if that's not enough! she was awarded in 2016, Australian Rural Woman of the Year in recognition of her commitment to rural communities.
She is a great friend to Moonacres school, and we are delighted to welcome her back to the school for a conversation and dinner.
Bubbles on arrival, conversation with Nicole, Fiona and Phil and book launch at 5pm and dinner with Sophie at 7pm. All guests will receive a copy of Sophie's new book.
