Welcome to Recipes Direct Online, your one stop recipe shop. Please enjoy the selection of recipes prepared by myself Chef Shane Meredith.
This website has been specially designed to give back to you, the public, for your generous support over the years.
Recipes Direct Online has a wide range of recipes from entree's through to desserts. We have also catered for special diet recipes, menus for dinner parties, as well as recipes for that special time you wish to impress.
Over the years a number of people used to ask if they could have the recipe of a meal that I had cooked for them. I used to joke and say; "If I give it to you, I would have to kill you". Now, that I have softened with age, I feel that I can share some of that knowledge, especially when I no longer have to work in the hustle and bustle of a commercial kitchen. This also allows me more time to spend with my family.
Today with the demands of the everyday working life, many families are way too busy to cook a lot at home. It seems that many people have become accustomed to takeaway meals, because of limited time. Due to this, sadly a number of people have either forgotten how to cook, or feel that it is less hassle and easier to eat out.
Recipes Direct Online's mission, is to get people back into their own kitchen and feel great about cooking and reap the benefits of the enjoyment on people's face when they eat your food. Cooking is not hard, and with the right help, passion and guidance, you can cook just like the chef's.
I wanted to be a chef since I was 6 years old and started my apprenticeship in 1988, after cooking at expo '88.
I have extensive experience, that ranges from A la carte', and fine dining, to cafe's, bistro and clubs. I have received many awards, including a silver medal at the salon culinare, whilst still an apprentice in 1991. I have had the pleasure of learning from great chef's and learning different cultures of cooking and special dietary meals.
As part of my research for this website, I was asked by many people, "Why can't we ever find special diet recipes anywhere that are easily available, easy to prepare and taste good?"
Hence, this is why I have included this option into my website. You will have the ability to select everyday meals, as well as; Diabetic, Gluten free, low carbohydrate, low salt and fat as well as low cholesterol. New recipes will be added in response to requests.
Recipes Direct Online, also gives you the opportunity to become a member and chat to your own personal chef online. This will give you the opportunity to ask all those questions you have always wanted to ask, or you might just need general advice to cook and prepare a recipe. This service is free to members only.
Please understand that this site is new and we will be regularly adding new recipes. If you have any requests of recipes that you would like to know, the chef will glagly add to the website, please feel free to send me an email or chat online and we will put it on the website for everyone to access.
Thank you for visiting Recipes Direct Online. You can now throw away those cookbooks that pile up in your draw, and just download the ones you want and create your own recipe book, for you and the whole family to enjoy. Bring back your passion and enjoy the cooking experience once again !!!
