For the love of fresh seasonal food, nice farmers and their produce.

LOCAL IS LOVELY is a seasonal guide to the fruit, vegetables and meat that Australian farmers produce. Beautiful recipes, tips for the home and family, and stories and interviews with and about local producers – because local is lovely.

Follow Sophie Hansen as she takes us on a journey with the farmers and producers she loves to cook with. From delicious, ripe stonefruit through to wholesome freshly milled flour, you’ll learn everything you need to know about eating local, direct from the source.

A gorgeously illustrated celebration of Australian rural life with a focus on fresh, local food and mouth-watering recipes.

Sophie Hansen lives on a farm about four hours west of Sydney with her husband and their two children. Sophie has worked for some of Australia’s top food and lifestyle magazines and also spent three years in Northern Italy working for the Slow Food’s editorial house, writing and editing the English language versions of the movement’s website and magazine Slow. Most recently Sophie has been freelancing for various online and virtual publications including Kidspot, Style Magazine and Justb Australia. Sophie blogs about local producers and food in her popular blog: www.local-lovely.com so make sure you visit here there and see what she’s up to.
