This App assumes that the following ingredients are available in all kitchens and therefore lists them only if larger quantities are needed: butter, vegetable oil, olive oil, red and white wine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper. Recipes are for two people, unless stated otherwise.
Comments on ingredients:
This app uses both metric and imperial measurements. Follow the same units of measurement throughout; do not mix metric and imperial. All spoon measurements are level: teaspoons are assumed to be 5 ml, and tablespoons are assumed to be 15 ml. Unless otherwise stated, milk is assumed to be full fat, eggs and individual vegetables are medium, and pepper is freshly ground black pepper. The times given are an approximate guide only. Preparation times differ according to the techniques used by different people and the cooking times may also vary from those given. Optional ingredients, variations or serving suggestions have not been included in the calculations.
Recipes using raw or very lightly cooked eggs should be avoided by infants, the elderly, pregnant women, convalescents and anyone suffering from an illness. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are advised to avoid eating peanuts and peanut products. Sufferers from nut allergies should be aware that some of the readymade ingredients used in the recipes in this book may contain nuts. Always check the packaging before use.
This app contains recipes where leftover food is used. However, if you are not sure that the food is in perfect condition, you should definitely throw it away and not use it. Always keep leftover food in a refrigerator and carefully check its condition before use. On no account should spoiling food be eaten. Take particular care when eating leftover cooked rice. Rice must be chilled quickly after cooking and may be kept in the refrigerator for one day at most and thoroughly reheated before being used again. All recipes in this app have been checked, cooked and tasted with the greatest care.
