Product description


Anyone who cooks - or eats - needs this book in their home. --Nigella Lawson

Of all the many cookery books that exist, there are only really a handful which are truly a must-have - The Cook's Companion is one of them. --Jamie Oliver

It is a rare fit that all cookery writers strive to achieve: writing the definitive book on a single subject. Stephanie Alexander did the impossible and wrote the definitive book on all subjects. --Yotam Ottolenghi


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 souffle, while at-a-glance panels offer wise advice and show which foods go best together. A delicious addition to any cook's kitchen shelf.
