Annabelle Hickson and Sophie Hansen Lunch

Wednesday 29th May 2024

There are two options for you to join us: either the all-inclusive lunch in the store, or the late afternoon book signing in The Traders.

Annabelle Hickson didn’t plan to live in regional Australia, but she fell in love with a handsome farmer from western NSW, so she thought she’d give it a shot.

While her husband Ed planted pecan trees, Annabelle looked after their three young children, wrote a regular monthly column at Country Style Magazine and published a book, A Tree in the House that has been sold all over the world.

This hardcover book shows a stunning visual & written anthology celebrating life in regional Australia curated by Galah magazine founder, award-winning writer & editor Annabelle Hickson.

Sophie Hansen is one of Australia’s favourite contemporary country cooks.

Sophie hosts a lively community of followers within her weekly 5 Things to Be Cheerful About newsletter, Local is Lovely blog and her Instagram, as well as countless pop-up dinners and events throughout regional Australia.

Sophie trained in print journalism and has more than 25 years’ experience as a features writer. She lives with her family on a farm just outside Orange in New South Wales. This is her fifth book.

Books available for purchase on the day or pre-order via the buy produce page.
