Stone is a notebook designed specifically for chefs. With water and grease-resistant pages, conversion charts and two hidden magnets, this notebook is born to survive the kitchen.
Stone’s pages are made from stone taken from limestone quarries, where offcuts are churned into a fine powder then turned into paper. The result is a material that’s completely immune to water and grease. Butter, wine, and oil simply wipe off with no stain left on the pages or smudging of the ink.
The other equally considered features all add practicality and elegance to the design. Perforated pages make it easy to share notes. Integrated magnets in the cover provide grip on stainless steel surfaces. Alternating blank and lined pages allow for sketches and written areas. And the conversion tables, lay flat design, pen loop and vegan leather cover round-out the experience.
Stone has already caught the attention of the industry with Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing and Pierre Kaufman amongst its customers. “A young chef should have an open mind, look the part, have a good set of knives and a Stone notebook,” says Marcus Wareing, The Berkeley.

Stone is the brainchild of food photographer & Bookblock co-founder Stefan Johnson and industry professional Eliot Collins. Having worked and visited dozens of restaurants around the world the two found it strange that chefs take such pride in their tools, yet the notebook would always lie close by in a state of decay.
The two are fixing this problem and sealing the gap in the market by taking their notebook to Kickstarter. You can lock one in for a May 2018 release with prices starting at £17. Stone: a notebook for chefs is available in Tan, Brown and Black colourways.
