Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just for You: More t&hellip by Kathy Hester

Undoubtedly a vegan slow cook book caters for a niche market - even more so when it is aimed at singles and couples. However this book did have me searching for mini slow cookers to buy and was a slow cooker revelation.

This is Caldicott's third World Book Cafe cookery book, a mouth watering collection of over 100 vegetarian recipes gathered on their recent journeys to exciting travel destinations around the world.

This beautifully written book takes you to ship's galleys in Bangladesh, to sand dunes in Namibia to a junk drifting through the tranquil seascape of Vietnam. Not only do the authors… Read more
