The recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia and an Officer of the Order of Australia, Stephanie has launched hundreds of careers, inspired generations of home cooks and fundamentally transformed the way food is thought about in her home country.
"The book is well-named: Stephanie Alexander is a chef with the heart of a home-cook, and this book is infused with the warmth of the kitchen. And it is so much more than a compilation of recipes, wonderful though they all are: it is a reflection on a lifetime’s eating and the distillation of a lifetime’s wisdom.. . . What else can I say about this delicious book except every home should have one!" —Nigella Lawson
