Behind the scenes of the making of the Cook’s Companion App

So what does it take to turn the Cook’s Companion in to an App? We’ve put together a fun behind-the-scenes video to give you a little taste of how we created the delicious images that are a unique feature of the App. Hundreds of dishes cooked by me and a team of kitchen assistants, captured by two talented photographers. Groaning lunch tables after shooting were a great perk!
