Slow-Burner On The Recipes,
This review is from: I Love My Slow Cooker: More than 100 of the Best-Ever Slow Cooker Recipes (Paperback)
I'm genuinely surprised to see the high markings for this book, given that my own experience from reading through it was rather different. I found many of the recipes to be, frankly, rather bland with little apparent thought or regard given to the real advantage of slow-cooking imparting more flavour and taste in to a dish. One example are the tagine dishes which have a list of ingredients that just do not do justice to what should be a dish that slow-cooking was made for. Key to these recipes are the blend of North African spices, Ras-El Hanout, which absolutely transform tagines and lend that authentic touch to these slow-cooked dishes. Overall, a book that just doesn't hit the spot on a great (and cheap!) cooking style; look elsewhere because there must be better out there.
