Format: Hardcover
Love this book. Although it surfs on the wave of what is back to fashion after years of oblivion and sometimes contempt ie the slow cooker ( and after all, why shouldn't it?), it is a great offering.
I suppose it could be a disappointment for people who are after very traditional British recipes for the slow cooker -for which there are plenty of other books- as a lot of recipes require different kinds of spices, but I found the ratio traditional vs international recipes very much in keeping with my tastes.
I liked the presentation of the recipes and the clear indications at the top of the page as to number of servings, prep time, cooking time and setting (slow cooker) or hob or oven as well as the tips and suggestions given after the recipes.
Most of the recipes are for the slow cooker but some are to be cooked on the hob or in the oven, all obviously take some time to "slow cook" but most take about 15 mns prep time, so in most cases, little work and great returns - if we checked the cooking time matched our schedule ;-).
The photos are good and inspiring although they are not on glossy paper and every recipe is not featured but they look pretty close to what you will obtain (one or two forgivable exceptions to make the photos look more appealing), something I do appreciate.
Recipes are sorted out by:
-Introduction (with great slow cooker tips for people who are new to the appliance...and the others)
-Soups and sauces (we loved the seafood laksa -expensive but well worth it- and the bolognese cooked that way was a winner too)
-On the side (aromatic aubergine with feta and spinach was surprisingly tasty as were slow-cooked courgettes and slow-cooked fennel with tomatoes, olives and crispy crumbs, next on the list: spicy braised aubergines with prunes...

This excellent book also suggests oven and hob methods, which is very useful. Whilst not a great fan of Anthony Worral Thompson, I did find this book very enjoyable and very interesting; it has somewhat amended my opinion of this gentleman. I am a great fan of slow cookers and whilst I am currently recovering from an operation, I can't wait to get back in the kitchen and try some of these recipes. Whilst several of the more traditional recipes are to be found in other books, AWT often offers his own twist to them, which could be interesting.
Amazon delivery was very speedy, as usual.
I would thoroughly recommend this book.

I have now tried many of AWT's recipes from this book & every one has been a success. Each recipe is easy to follow & has obviously been tried & tested. Great for cooking & freezing batches of meals as most recipes cater for large numbers. Although many of the recipes are for slow cookers they work just as well in a good, large cast iron casserole & a low oven.

Like some other cooks reviews AWT is not my chef of choice, however in this book he has mastered and brought up to date the art of slow cooking. I used to find that most slow cooker recipes all come out tasting very similar and with a similar texture. This book has changed my attitude considerably. I am an eager home cook and enjoy trying new recipies all the time. Of all my recipe book collection this is the one that I come back to time and time again especially in the depths of winter. All the recipes are good family fayre and are easy to prepare (even if the ingredients list is long, they are usually all storecupboard staples) and there is something very special in the anticipation of a meal that has been ticking away all day with its lovely aromas filling the kitchen. Would highly recommend.

Exactly what you would expect from an excellent chef such as Antony Worrall Thompson. Packed with recipes to suit everyone using absolutely gorgeous tastes. Definitely something to liven up your slow cooking and if you think this way of cooking is old fashioned - think again. Anthony redefines it with his recipes into a modern, energy efficient, labour saving method of cooking.

As a new owner of a slow cooker, I found this slow cooking book was a real hit and some of the recipes have been cooked more than once. One to have and to use.

Much more interesting than any other slow cooking book I've seen up to now. Tried a few already and very pleased with the results but admit only main course dishes made. Looking forward to making some desert dishes and cakes.
