Stephanie Alexander will be in conversation with Terri-ann White on Monday 23rd April at 12.30pm to discuss her autobiography A Cook’s Life published by Penguin Australia. For Stephanie, A Cook’s Life marks the first time she has gone on the record to talk about her life – both in and out of the kitchen. It is the personal account of a young woman whose passion for good food turned into a brilliant career, influencing a generation of cooks, chefs and ordinary Australians.
Stephanie Alexander OAM is a national treasure whose indefatigable determination and uncompromising dedication has forever influenced the eating habits of Australia. A Cook’s Life is her story – a surprising, intimate and revealing insight into her life, from its modest beginnings to the making of a culinary legend.
In 1996 Stephanie’s Cook’s Companion burst onto the Australian market. Included was the food that Stephanie cooked for her family and friends, the recipes she learned from her mother and the wisdom garnered from years in the markets, pantry and at the table. Now, fifteen years later the famous, candy striped cookbook is still the one reached for in half a million kitchens.
But before Stephanie penned a single word for any of her best-selling cookbooks, she spent decades documenting her food experiences. Through her notebooks, shopping and to-do lists, travel notes and recipes, A Cook’s Life tracks Stephanie’s journey, inspired by a lifetime love affair with food.
