Author: Sophie Hansen

Featuring recipe collections for giving and sharing on every occasion. Here are 140 ideas, by season, to cook for loved ones celebrating an excellent milestone, moving house, busy with a newborn, recovering from illness, or just in need of love and comfort. A bundle of fresh dips and lavosh biscuits to take along to drinks; portable breakfast to surprise a friend; a sturdy picnic cake and sandwiches for lunch (even in the office); or ragu and chocolate mousse to enjoy while wallowing on the sofa… because nothing says 'I love you and I'm here' better than food you've taken the time to make, wrap and deliver.
