The Cook's Companion
As soon as you dip into this comprehensive cookery book from Australian restaurateur, Stephanie Alexander, you’ll understand why it has established itself as the kitchen ‘bible’ on that continent in the past decade. Stephanie believes that eating well should be a joy, not a worry, and her book is designed to be used everyday, by everyone, regardless of culinary experience or skill. She learned her skills at her mother’s side and writes as if you were at her side as she selects ingredients, mixes, bakes, laughs, tastes and revels in the heady world of great food. Over one thousand pages offer nearly as many failsafe recipes for everything from apple tart to zuccini soufflé, while at-a-glance panels offer wise advice and show which foods go best together. A delicious addition to any cook’s kitchen shelf.
