The best cook book you can’t and wont have to do without.

Owning the print version of Stephanie's Cook’s Companion has always right of passage in becoming, dare I say, a competent or better and interesting cook. Now in electronic form, it saves a great deal of physical energy lugging it around and, in keeping with Stephanie Alexander’s long established ethics, we know we can be assured it will kept viable as operating systems change. The recent outage with iOS 12 was rectified quickly and all is well. You can’t say the same for certain celebrity chefs who simply abandon their old to apps to churn out new money spinners for the naive. Enjoy Stephanie’s help and don’t leave home without it.

All fixed!

If I could only have one cookbook, this would have to be it. For years I have relied on Stephanie’s encyclopaedic book, both the original and the updated edition. I was so pleased when I was able to purchase the app for my iPad, with all the convenient extra bells and whistles and none of the physical weight. I am even more pleased now that the recent mega bug has been rectified!
