4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 15 Nov. 2010

This review is from: 200 Halogen Oven Recipes: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook (Paperback)
There is a shortage of recipe books for halogen ovens and this is one of the best, although almost pocket size it is one of the excellent Hamlyn 200 recipes books. The title states the author is Maryanne Madden but she is not mentioned in the actual book. As well as the 200 recipes all with full page illustrations of how the dish should turn out there are useful tips and advice on using halogen ovens. The recipes are arranged in food order and consist of sections on Chicken, Beef, Pork, Lamb, Seafood, Vegetarian, Pizza & Pasta, On the side (vegetables), Breads & Baking and finally desserts & Puddings.
With all of these receipts there should be something for everyone, there is also an index if you can't find things by thumbing through. Each recipe has detailed instructions including preparation and cooking time it also gives quantities in both metric and imperial measurements.
I particularly liked the Chilli-spiced meatballs, the recipes for various stews worked well but I prefer these cooked in a slow cooker but with the halogen you can have a beef & barley stew with a cooking time of 55 minutes as opposed to about 8hrs with a slow cooker

good review thanks i own a few of the 200 series now.

quick point, you can have a stew in around 30 mins in a pressure cooker (that will match that slow cooked tenderness).

Thanks for your kind words:-
I agree with your comments about pressure cookers however my wife will not have one in the house since one blew the top off when the safety valve jammed. This was in the early 60s so I am sure they are much better now.
