There’s a a basket of jewel-coloured summery smoothies, dips and crackers for a girlfriend or sister just home with a newborn, a deep, spicy gingerbread loaf to deliver (with a thermos of tea perhaps) for friend on the mend in the deep mid-winter, there’s a basket loaded up with fennel ragu, wine and chocolate mousse to take to a sad friend’s house to eat with her or him on the couch, and there’s the very best ever chicken pie to take for a new neighbour or stressed friend. There are also recipes and menus for gatherings to comfort and celebrate. These recipes are full of love, compassion, generosity and care. This is food to nourish, bolster, cheer, commiserate and celebrate.
