My Go To food app

Dawn Narrell

Whether shopping, creating a recipe, looking for ideas or simply wanting a particular recipe. This app is my first choice. Brilliant. Better than the book.

Love it!


Great, portable version of my favourite cook book. Thanks!!

Let me print!

I love the recipes in The Cook’s Companion.

I use computers and idevices all day so I like turning them off when I want to relax. So, I hate having to take my idevice to the kitchen to see the recipes in this app; I would rather print the recipe so that I can put grubby fingers on the page rather than on my device.

It is really annoying when app makers force the user to engage with their app in a limited way.
