Book Description

5 Sep 2011 Cookery
'Satisfying' is a word that springs to mind when there's a soup simmering on the stovetop or a casserole cooking to melting tenderness in the oven. Making a meal all in one pot is one of the easiest ways to cook and surely one of the most rewarding. Meat or seafood, vegetables or pulses; whatever the ingredient, it benefits from the process of a long, slow cook, accompanied by aromatic spices or herbs, a good splash of stock and whatever other secret ingredients you, the cook, have up your sleeve. Slow-cooked dishes abound in cuisines all around the world, and this collection of flavoursome recipes showcases the best of them. Don the apron, wield the chopping knife and start cooking. Key points: features dozens of slow-cooked recipes from around the world; soups and casseroles for meat lovers and vegetarians; includes a selection of recipes created for a slow-cooker appliance; a user-friendly guide to slow cooking that explains the basic techniques and ways to get the best results.

5.0 out of 5 stars In My Top 10!!! 17 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm not often impressed by recipe books - as a former head-chef, I'm usually bored by the overly complicated (and sometimes completley wrong) methods and use of ingredents. But this book struck me at once! Cooking the way it is ment to be!!!

beyond a little bit of preperation of ingredents and a handy timer or alarm, this is "put it on and forget about it" cooking. Soups, stews, casseroles, roasts and more that require very little effort and produce some great meals!

This is a grat book and one well worth adding to any foodies library.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful addition to your cookery books 21 Sep 2011
By Magdalene VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book is split into sections for soups, casseroles, stews, curries, vegetarian, slow cookers, etc. Quite a big book with over 300 pages and more than 300 recipes. Book is beautifully illustrated with colour photos and step-by-step instructions.

The book starts off with a nice introduction to cooking techniques, food safety, etc.

Some of the ingredients mentioned in the Asian soup section are un-familiar and may require a visit to a specialist food shop. Prep and cooking time generally range from 20mins to over 3 hours. All in all, it's a nice addition to the bookshelf of any cooking enthusiast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essentially a casserole cookbook, expanded 10 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This big, 390-page softcover cookbook is from the Australian publisher Murdoch Books. According to the introduction, the book "celebrates the joy of flavours which can only be crafted from taking things slowly". It is not, as the title might suggest, just about recipes for a `slow-cooker', though the final chapter (of nine) is devoted exclusively to this specialist appliance. The book's more general subject is proper, take-your-time slow cooking: i.e. preparing a meal which is then cooked in a casserole dish for a couple of hours:

"Slow cooking allows the ingredients to coalesce, weaving a culinary magic which transcends the palate and feeds the heart and soul."

The chapter contents are not arranged strictly according to main ingredient - i.e. pork dishes, lamb dishes etc. - but by type, as follows:

* Asian soups

* Vegetable soups

* Meat and seafood soups

* Casseroles

* Stews

* Curries

* One pots

* Vegetarian

* Slow cookers

Overall the contents are very comprehensive and, like almost all modern cookbooks, lavishly illustrated with high-quality photography - typically the text of either two or just one recipe are printed on the left-hand side of the page and the photos are on the right-side. Directions are easy to follow and the results (from my few attempts at the recipes so far) turn out as promised.

One minor complaint seems to be that the book is large, heavy and unwieldy to use. Well, maybe: it's larger than A4 letter size and has almost 400 pages. If the physical size of a cookbook is important to you, then go buy a small one.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Slow Cooking Bible 28 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an excellent recipe book. The photographs of each finished dish are of amazingly high quality and realistic of what you can expect your dish to look like. The instructions are clear and well set out, with the majority of ingredients listed being easily obtained and not over-expensive. The opening chapter on basics was informative and gave good sound advice on slow cooking methods.

My only criticism of this book is it not being bound in a hard cover, as the weight of the book and its soft cover make it awkward to handle when working in the kithen. Otherwise, this is a superbly illustrated and well written cookery book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the cover 22 Mar 2013
By Mr. M Errington VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Slow cooking is as much a state of mind as a technique. Think of it as the opposite of wok cookery. Nothing is so warming or welcome as a slow-cooked meal on a cold winter's day. Much of it is one-pot, so it is efficient for the washing up, and long slow cooking can make delicious food of even the cheapest and toughest cuts of meat. I recommend this as a good starter for you if you do not do this kind of cooking already.
And another benefit of slow cooking is when you have guests, when you can serve up the food when you and they are ready, and not be tied to a hot stove when you want to be joining in the fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars good wholesome cooking 19 April 2012
By love reading TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Rather strangely, I have waited until the spring to bring out my slow cooker and begin to use this very good cookery book. It has been years. Yet is was worth the wait. This book has renewed my opinions of the pot roast and slow ways of cooking stews and even some lovely vegetarian dishes. I have tried a few of the recipes and they have all been lovely and very easy.
The book is well laid out with lots of beautiful and appealing photographs. It is also very easy to follow and the recipes are uncomplicated.
Perhaps I will set it aside again until the autumn but maybe not as it is a very easy way to prepare a filling and delicious meal.
I do thoroughly recommend this book and I will certainly be using it frequently.
