Snap your Cooks Companion App dish to WIN!

Tablet stand

Cook and photograph a dish from the Cook’s Companion App to win weekly prizes – plus the chance to have your photo featured in the App.

The Cook’s Companion is often referred to as ‘the bible’. With over 2,000 dishes and authoritative information about ingredients, cooking advice and more, its sheer size necessitated a focus on words rather than pictures. But once I decided to offer all of this in a convenient digital format, the opportunity to include photos was irresistible!

I cooked hundreds of dishes specifically for the App, which were photographed by professionals. I’m also continually adding iPhone snaps that I take in my own kitchen. But with hundreds of dishes still to be photographed, I think it’s time to get you all involved!

Join the #mycooksappdish challenge by cooking a recipe from the Cook’s Companion App that doesn’t already have an image of the dish, and sending me a photo.

Each week I’ll pick my favourite photo to win a Prepara iPrep Kitchen Tablet Stand and a Little Moments App by Fat Mum Slim. Plus, the very best images will be selected to appear in the App and become part of this iconic work.

The competition officially starts on October 6th … but you can start submitting now! Prepare a favourite dish that you’ve perfected, or experiment and try something new. I’ve included some weekly prompts to help you explore the App and discover hidden gems.





  • Cook any recipe from the Cook’s Companion App that does NOT already feature a photo of the dish. You can use my weekly prompts to inspire you.
  • If possible, submit two photos: one portrait orientation with the dish at the top of the photo, and one landscape.
  • You don’t need to be a professional photographer: well-lit smartphone photos are fine!
  • Submit your photos via the ENTRY FORM below. Files should be a maximum 5MB.
  • Tweet, Instagram or share your image with the hashtag #mycooksappdish so everyone can see!



The competition runs for nine weeks, from 6th October 2014 to 7th December 2014. So you have nine chances to win. Each week, one entrant will win a Prepara iPrep Kitchen Tablet Stand and a Little Moments App to keep you snapping. Enter as many times as you like!
