Preparation time

The time it takes someone to prepare a recipe varies according to their skill level. We have tried to take into account other factors such as preheating an oven and a little tidying of the kitchen and its tools after a given task.

Cooking time

Sometimes the cooking time may have been included in the preparation time of a recipe.

Total time

The total time may not be an exact sum of the preparation time and the cooking time but a rounding up of the two.
