Stephanie Alexander AO is regarded as one of Australia's great food educators. Her reputation has been earned through 30 years as an owner-chef in several restaurants, as the author of 14 influential books and for her groundbreaking work in creating the Stephanie Alexander Garden Foundation.

Everything she has achieved and worked towards has been driven by her desire to break down anxieties about cooking, to emphasise the beauty of produce fresh from the garden and to promote the pleasures of sharing around a table. Her fifth book, The Cook's Companion, is regarded as an Australian classic, and has sold over 500 000 copies. in 2013, this monumental work, in response to the new technology, first appeared as an easy-to-use digital app.

In 2014 Stephanie became an Officer of the Order of Australia in recognition of her work with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation.She was named Victorian of the Year in 2010 and, in 2012, appeared in the number one position on Crikey magazine's list of the most powerful people in Australian food. Her strong belief is that the earlier children learn about food through example and pleasurable hands-on experience, the better their food choices will be throughout life.

  • Better than I ever expected

    I don’t know why I waited so long for me to buy this book; it may be that I am skeptical of hype. HOWEVER, this book is a must have for anyone. The way the book is divided by ingredient is genius and allows you to quickly find complimentary flavours and recipes for in season produce. I also enjoy the style of recipes which I find well written, simple and delicious without acquiescing to current food trends. I now understand why Ms Alexander is so admired.

  • Wonderful Resource

    Excellent book that I was given a copy of in the 90’s. I purchased it as a gift for my daughter as she requested it. She loves it.

  • Perfect!

    Excellent service! Exactly as I'd hoped. Perfect packaging and super quick postage. I'll use A&R again for sure :)
