How does Alexa work with BBC Good Food?

Simply ask Alexa, “What shall I cook for dinner tonight?” and Alexa will respond with our favourite BBC Good Food recipe options, which are updated daily. You’ll then be able to enjoy an intuitive, hands-free cooking experience that’s now even easier – if paused or interrupted during the method, Alexa will remember where you were when you return to the recipe.

Firstly, you need a compatible Alexa device – if you don’t own one then unfortunately you won’t be able to use this service. You also currently need to live in the UK for the cook along with Alexa to work. Read our FAQs page to find out more about BBC Good Food and Alexa.
