Stewed! founder Alan Rosenthal quit his job in DVD product management after a stew-reka moment while on the Circle line on his way to work. He decided to create dishes full-time, and stewed! was an instant success. After Budgens and Harvey Nicholls started stocking the brand, both Ocado, Waitrose and Sainsburys came on board. Alan currently has four products in the stewed! range with more on the way in 2010.

The key is the blend of ingredients - the author never over uses herbs but always adds the 'right' ones, so that every recipe takes fresh and light, even when it's hearty. He's big on pre-browning your meat, but I sometimes just put everything in a slow cooker and it's nearly as good. Also, I sometimes use a different meat to the one he suggests - substituting beef for lamb, or chicken for beef, depending on what's in the fridge - and the recipes all work with these variations. No recipe is too complicated either, this is written by someone eager to eat, rather than about the 'art' of cooking!
The best part of this book, though, is that it is international; recipes are divided into continents (European, Asian, American etc) so you can cook whatever you are in the mood for. Within each of the sections are recipes you may have tried or heard of before, and many you may not have -I cook from scratch every day and I reckon I hadn't come across about a quarter of these before.
Do yourself a favour, buy this book, get down to the supermarket for the key ingredients he uses (it took me about 20 minutes to flick through them all and write a herbs & spices list for what I didn't already have in), invest in a Le Crueset or similar cast-iron hob-to-oven pot, and enjoy!
I for one, have logged on to buy copies for all my friends for Christmas.....

Great inspiration if your a one pot cooking fan. If you've tried the take-away stews at his pop-up sites you'll want the book.Published on 28 Sept. 2013 by Gs Lovell
I don't think I have ever cooked so many recipes from a single cookbook. And all those I have tried have been delicious and more importantly they have worked.Published on 12 July 2013 by Title page
