Some elements of this text to consider:
- The website would very likely be simplified for an actual Paper 1 – some of the non-core parts would probably be removed.
- The “Australia’s Best Recipes” (and the .au suffix) indicate that the website is geared towards Australians but it is of course accessible to everyone online.
- The simplicity of the website. Many recipe websites have a long and drawn-out write up at the start but this website gets to the point quite quickly.
- The website allows (and encourages) users to upload their own recipe “for a chance to win.” In this way users are encouraged to try the recipe and they are also contributing to the content of the website.
