Best-selling Sophie Hansen and her artist and art teacher mum Annie Herron have teamed up - here are recipes to cook, preserves to make, things to sketch, crafts for the not-crafty - and more.
Around The Kitchen Table is an invitation to pause our busy lives - even for half an hour - and cook, create or make something good every day. Written by food writer Sophie Hansen and her mum, art teacher Annie Herron, it celebrates the joy and sense of satisfaction that comes with preparing a simple meal to share, pencilling a sketch or making a jar of jam to give as a gift. Organised into seasons, each chapter is packed with inspiration and encouragement, including bright spring lunches and easy preserves, how to start and finish a watercolour painting at the beach (or anywhere!), generous picnics for summer days, the joy of Christmas baking and craft, cosy suppers, autumn sketching adventures and slow cooking and drawing games for cold winter afternoons.
'The kitchen table is the beating heart of any home and Sophie Hansen brings us into hers with her new book Around the Kitchen Table.
