Her next venture was Stephanie's Restaurant in Fitzroy before moving to Hawthorn in 1980. Stephanie's Restaurant closed in 1997 after operating for 21 years.

This "Journal" is Stephanie's personal account of a year of both difficulties and promise, which saw the opening of the Richmond Hill Cafe & Larder, the closure of the celebrated restaurant, Stephanie's, the publication of two books, cooking schools in Tuscany with Maggie Beer and many warm, wonderful times with family and friends.
