YEPPOON'S Alison Quigley is using modern technology to turn back the clock in the kitchen.

Alison wants people across the country to throw their favourite recipes from their grandmother into a huge Facebook mixing bowl.

She will select the best for a mouth-watering concept called Our Grandma's Cookbook.

The mother of two has been collecting her own grandmother's recipes for a long time.

"I just love making old food that has been passed down through the family," she said.

"I have Italian and Scottish culture in my family so my cooking is influenced by different cultures."

Alison said she was really passionate about sharing her love for food.

"I'd really like to build this collection of everyone's grandmothers' recipes," she said.

"Along with their recipes I'll include a photo of the family and a little story about them so the reader will get to know them too."

She said cooking at home helped save time and money.

Alison is hoping her cookbook will be finalised by the end of the year.

Her Facebook page is www.facebook.com/ourgranmascookbook, email is ourgrandmascookbook@hotmail.com.au or for those not online, letters can be mailed to PO Box 137 Yeppoon, 4703.
