This is the Media Cooks food related web site and contains the AWP Recipe Database
a large and growing catalogue of recipes.
The idea behind this site is not only to provide recipes but also educate you in
the very basics of cooking. The sort of things that many recipe books assume you
already know. The information we have presented here should give you a solid base
to work from and allow you to explore the world of cooking with a better understanding
As we felt there was very little on the very basics of cooking the site does not
have very much advanced or fancy information, the recipe database does assume you
have a general knowledge of cooking though. The database has basic to very complicated
recipes for all levels of cooks, you can also submit your own recipes for inclusion.
The site has been designed by Colin Paterson a professional cook with a Bachelors
of Fine Arts in New Media with over ten years of commercial cooking from bars and
dinners to family dinning, fine dinning and catering service, Colin has done it all
and currently works part time and doing private functions to keep the skills fresh.
Agnes Paterson has years of cooking experience from just keeping the family fed
to working in commercial kitchens. Agnes also holds a certificate in Bartending and
has worked both as a bartender and a club manager. She brings with here with many
years of cooking experience from both a home and commercial viewpoint.
They AWP team continues to work in the field by catering high end food for private
functions and special events such as weddings and gallery openings.
This site will continue to grow and new information will be added and old information
will be updated or changed if necessary. There is a lot of information to present
so be patient if you run into an area or section that doesn’t seem like it is finished
it will be soon.
Thanks for your interest in our web site.
Please note this sites layout is some what similar to a cookbook and you may have
to search though a page for the information you want. As the amount of information
we try to present grows some pages can get a bit large, so take your time and browse
the site and you may find a few hidden gems.
