What’s happening

Tech travels with my iPad

Suitcase with iPad

I find packing much easier and lighter these days thanks to my iPad. For those of you heading off for Easter holidays, I thought you might like to know what Apps and e-books I’ve been using, reading and watching on my recent travels.


Of course, I take the Cook’s Companion App with me everywhere, and even though I thought I knew the entire contents backwards, by using the Search function I find I am locating recipes that I had not come across for a long time so my frequently-cooked repertoire has expanded!


I have just finished the monster read of Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch which I really enjoyed, although I was a bit aghast at the excesses of the two young characters. I am planning a Sri Lankan holiday later in the year and have been reading quite a bit with a Sri Lankan theme. I enjoyed Michele de Kretser’s The Hamilton Case, and the delightful Running in the Family by Michael Ondaatje.


I’m looking forward to downloading Rick Stein’s Far Eastern Odyssey in anticipation of my holiday later this year.

I’m an avid user of the the ABC iView App to catch up on missed episodes of favourite shows such as Rake and The Checkout.


The FacebookInstagram and Twitter Apps on my iPad and phone are in regular use. Social media has its advantages and challenges, but I enjoy sharing an experience vicariously with friends, family and followers. Please join me on my food adventures!
