Sophie Hansen is Australia's Rural Woman of the Year 2016. She lives in Orange, New South Wales with her deer farmer husband Tim and their two children on a farm.
Soph is an online country lady whizz. She has a wonderful blog called Local is Lovely, that became a cookbook. She has a gorgeous Instagram (@locallovely). She hosts social media, food photography and styling workshops. She has a podcast called My Open Kitchen.
I had the good fortune to go to university with Soph and we've stayed in touch over the years. At uni in Canberra, Soph had that Sydney girl sheen. She was really bright and stylish and I wanted to be friends with her.
In this episode Soph talks about working in magazines in Sydney, joining the slow food movement in Italy, meeting her husband Tim and getting engaged in three months! Soph is so fun. I hope you enjoy this episode.
